How insurance protects your things in storage

For your own benefit and protection, you’ll need to insure your belongings while storing them with Shurgard.

Why you need insurance

Although we make sure all our stores are fully insured for such things as natural disasters, you’ll need to get insurance cover for your stored items against loss or damage.

Where to get insurance

We can provide you with insurance starting at £3 a week. Created specifically for Shurgard customers by Marsh, this policy is a convenient and affordable way to get the cover you need and insures belongings up to the value of £2,000.

Alternatively, contact the insurers who provide your home contents insurance and get a quote from them. You may also want to check whether your current home policy stretches to items in store. Some policies do, others don’t.

Why is insurance not included in our quoted price

Our rental prices can’t include insuring your things 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 insurance.

When to take out insurance

It should start on the day you move your belongings into storage. That way, it covers the actual move as well as the storage period.
