If you’re thinking of doing without insurance on your property while it’s in store, think again. You not only need to protect yourself against the cost of replacing your goods if they are stolen or damaged, but to consider other possibilities. Extreme weather, fire and badly-driven vehicles are only a few of the causes that can cost you dearly.
Well, you’re in luck – Reading Storage Solutions’ new self-storage insurance arrangements mean that your possessions are covered for a whole range of risks while in store, including fire, flooding, malicious damage and vermin attack. You can view a copy of the policy here.
Flooding is the UK’s second-highest natural disaster risk (flu epidemics top the list) and with recent episodes affecting many areas of Britain in 2007, 2009 and 2012, protecting your property should be a priority. While we take suitable precautions to avoid everyday risks, you can’t afford to dismiss the possibility of extreme weather.
Less common, but equally – if not more – destructive are severe storms. While the Great Storm of 1987 may not be a regular occurrence, that’s no consolation if you’re left with a pile of debris sitting where your belongings used to be.
Quick and Simple
Insuring your property while it’s in storage is simple and you don’t have to let us know in advance about your goods. When you arrive to deposit your property, just tell us what you’re storing, how much it’s worth and sign our standard storage agreement. You can store goods with a value up to £5,000 in any single container.
Our policy is underwritten by Lonham Marine Underwriters, specialists in storage insurance of all types. For most items, replacement is on a new-for-old basis, although some exceptions apply – please ask us for details.
