Do I need insurance for my storage unit?

At Storage World, we serve a variety of customers who each have their own need for space. Businesses rent large units to store their stock and inventory, homeowners rent personal units during renovations, and couples store their belongings after downsizing. 

In each instance, one detail is common and that is that customers store their belongings with us for safety and security. With many years of serving our valued customers, we’ve been asked about insurance and whether you need insurance for a storage unit.

Why do you need insurance? 

Life is unpredictable and sometimes our belongings are put at risk. Insurance offers peace of mind in the event of unfortunate circumstances. While insurance can’t replace the sentimental value of items, it can help with cash flow for replacement and cover the value of lost belongings. 

Insurance offered by Storage World

Our Storage World stores in Middleton, Manchester Central, and Hale & Wilmslow are insured at a property level. As we can’t anticipate the exact contents (and value) in a customer’s storage unit, we encourage our valued tenants to take out extra insurance. 

In an effort to make the process easy and convenient, we provide a separate content insurance policy that we match to each customer’s value of goods. 

In order to take out insurance on goods, customers need to provide an outline inventory of items. A policy is then put in place, underwritten by the Royal & SunAlliance. The policy protects the items with the replacement value of the belongings. 

Insuring contents with Storage World offers an affordable solution to an unfortunate situation. 

Extra aspects of security

At Storage World, the safety and security of your belongings is a top priority. That’s why we have installed security measures to give customers peace of mind and confidence in our services. 

For example, we ensure that all storage units are clean, dry and secure. Our stores have been specifically developed for long term storage and are inspected in accordance with the Self Storage Association Guidelines. Store standards are reviewed twice daily and any items prone to mess or disruption are prohibited. 

Additional security features include individual padlocks that provide sole access to the customer. Units are monitored with 24-hour CCTV footage.

If you’re looking for a safe and secure space to store your belongings, then our Storage World stores are only a call (or click online) away.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
