Insure Your Belongings for Extra Peace of Mind

Here at National Storage, we have a saying. Well, actually, we have a few! But one of our favourites is: If it’s worth storing, it’s worth insuring.

One of the key benefits of our storage units is that they keep your possessions protected, however in the unlikely event of some misfortune befalling your items, or if Mother Nature strikes, it’s great to know that your goods in storage are covered as per the terms and conditions of the Storers PDS.

Storage Insurance FAQs

  • Do I really need insurance for my storage unit?

    The chances of something happening to your goods while in storage are low, but if you value something enough to keep it safely under lock and key, it’s probably worthwhile taking one extra small step to insure it.

  • Is insurance covered in my hire costs?

    In most situations, no – this is an additional service we offer. However, for some products (such as our premium wine storage), insurance is included. The National Storage staff member you speak with will inform you if this is the case.

  • How much will storage insurance cost me?

    This depends largely on the number and value of things you are storing, so we cannot suggest a number without knowing these details.
