One of the most frequent questions we get when discussing storage insurance with our customers is why it’s needed. Good question! The safety of our facilities and the security of your stored items is our highest priority at StorQuest.
But, sometimes things happen that are out of our control, and your stored items should be covered in the event of a loss. You want to make sure you are prepared. So, here are three reasons why storage insurance is a MUST:
1. Compensation. The reality is that stuff happens, and if it does, you want to be compensated for the loss of your stored belongings. Money may never be able to replace that which is sentimental to you, but compensation for the monetary value of those items may make you feel a bit better. And, for all other items, insurance will allow you to replace belongings that have been damaged or lost.
2. Peace of Mind. For our business storage customers, inventory and important business records may be in the storage unit. Fear not. If something happens, you are covered, and your livelihood is not at risk. Isn’t a good night’s sleep and lower blood pressure worth it?
3. It’s Required. Yes, it’s true. Proof of property insurance is required when you store items with most self storage companies, including StorQuest. Many homeowners’ and renters’ insurance policies cover stored belongings. If not, look into getting a specific policy for self storage.
If you have not yet produced proof of insurance, you should bring in your policy to your local StorQuest office for their records. If you are not sure, contact your insurance agent to make sure that your stored belongings are covered under the terms. If you need to obtain storage insurance, talk to your StorQuest manager, or call a StorQuest Customer Service Representative at 800-784-9176 to talk about your options. In some cases, coverage can be granted right over the phone.
