For your own benefit and protection, you’ll need to insure your belongings while storing them with Shurgard.
Although we make sure all our stores are fully insured for such things as natural disasters, you’ll need to get a goods coverage for your stored items against loss or damage.
The goods coverage policy we offer covers direct damage to or direct loss of your goods during storage and transportation caused by:
In the unlikely event your storage unit is affected by one of these risks, you can claim the insured amount of your stored belongings (as mentioned on your insurance certificate) provided that you were allowed to store these goods at Shurgard and taking into account that the maximum amount that can be received is the insured amount as mentioned on your insurance certificate upon the condition all policy conditions are met.
More information in our Insurance Terms & Conditions.
The actual cost of your premium will depend on the insured value of the belongings stored in your unit.
Bespoke goods coverage can be arranged for you via our broker in case you are storing items of higher value than mentioned above.
Our rental prices can’t include insuring your stored belongings, because the amount you’ll need to pay to insure them depends on how much they’re worth.
Every tenant stores items of different value and so will need different levels of goods coverage.
We can provide you with goods coverage created especially for Shurgard customers by Marsh.
Alternatively, you can contact your insurer and ask for a quote. Conditions vary per insurance company, so make sure you ask your insurer for more details.
