Self Storage Insurance underwritten by certain Underwriters at Lloyd’s

 

​Store and Insure are one of the most competitive online storage insurance providers in the UK for household goods and personal effects. 

  • We offer an instant online insurance quote, allowing you to arrange cover at any storage or self-storage facility in the UK from less than £ 1.35 per week. We invite you to compare this with your self storage facility and see the considerable savings for yourself.
  • Our quote is inclusive of Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) and all fees and charges. 
  • Cover is 'New for Old' and is free of any policy excess if you store your goods with a company who is a member of the Self Storage Association (SSA) or an approved facility therefore offering you peace of mind if you ever need to claim on your storage insurance policy.
  • Our insurance policy covers your household goods and personal effects from your home, in transit and whilst in your chosen self storage facility, with no minimum time or premium. We are unable to insure motor cars, caravans, commercial goods, stock, documents or office equipment.
  • The Policy protects your items from loss or damage caused by fire, flood, theft, insect or vermin damage, explosion, lightning, water damage and civil commotion and they must be stored in a recognised self storage facility. We are unable to insure goods stored in lock-up garages, garages, barns, sheds or similar.

A self storage facility is deemed to be a purpose built or converted facility that offers do-it-yourself self storage. An individual self storage unit is a fully contained locked container, room, compartment and/or locker exclusively used for personal storage to which you have the exclusive right to access. The facility must have controlled and/or restricted access with either CCTV and/or adequate fire protection and/or alarmed, within a secure perimeter fencing or similar where appropriate.

Comparative Costs

 

Our scheme is far more competitive than purchasing insurance directly from many of the self-storage providers who use the insurance as a revenue stream and other online providers. Also we are aware a number of branch managers at some of the larger multi-based facilities incentivise their managers based on insurance sales. For instance :-

Location Value of Goods : £ 5.000 Value of Goods : £ 10,000
Big Yellow Self Storage£ 90.00£ 180.00
Access Self Storage£ 94.20£ 186.40
Lok'nStore Cardiff£ 90.00£ 120.00
STORE AND INSURE £ 35.16 £ 70.32

* Based on 3 months cover as from 01/05/21. Don't just take our word for it - ask you self storage provider and then compare it against our rates.
