If there is a break and enter, a fire, or some other unfortunate event, your belongings will not be covered by the insurance policy of the public storage unit. As the contents’ owner, you must carry your own storage content insurance.
In some cases, some homeowners insurance (and tenant’s content insurance) policies may cover stored belongings for the first 30 or 90 days only, depending on your policy. We recommend you contact your home insurance broker to find out exactly how much insurance coverage you may have and what your deductibles may be.
Most professional storage facilities rent out storage units of varying sizes on a month-by-month basis. However, it’s up to you to obtain storage unit insurance separately if your belongings will be stored for an extended period of time.
Huronia Insurance Group in Barrie Ontario can help you find the right storage insurance coverage for the entire time your belongings are in storage. You may even be surprised at how little storage insurance cost.
Your contents in storage insurance policy can include replacement cost coverage as well as all risk coverage. This will help protect your stored valuables from such dangers as fire and smoke damage, impact, explosion, and flooding. It can even include liability insurance.
