StoreProtect is a Goods Protection policy that protects your personal and business goods from any risks when they re stored away from your home or business location in our storage facility. All reputable self-storage facilities regard Goods Protection as a necessity and will not allow you to store your possessions without it.

The following are common events that StoreProtect protects your contents against:

  • Theft and malicious damage.
  • Water damage, including that caused by storms, flooding and burst or leaking pipes.
  • Moth, insects or other vermin emerging from external sources.
  • Earthquakes, lightning and other forms of weather and natural disasters.
  • Damage caused by fire.
  • Aircrafts and articles dropped from aircrafts.

To find out the full extent of what a StoreProtect policy covers, we recommend reading our Terms & Conditions of storage and contacting us if you have any specific queries or concerns.

Which types of items does StoreProtect cover

StoreProtect can be used to cover almost any possessions, as long as they do not exceed the cover value. This includes documents, clothing, books, electronics, sports equipment, memorabilia and many other items.

It is always recommended that you keep a record of the items you’re storing, so you can be adequately reimbursed if they are damaged or stolen. This is especially true with high-value items, such as antiques, as it may be necessary to prove they are genuine to ensure you are compensated with their full monetary value.

When does StoreProtect take effect?

As with the majority of self-storage insurance policies, the StoreProtect cover does not go into effect until your possessions have been placed in the storage room. This means that your items are not covered during transit to the storage facility and, once they are removed from it, Goods Protection ceases to be in effect.

If you are transporting your belongings with a moving company and want to be covered, make sure the moving company has Goods in Transit Insurance.
