Everything you need to know about insuring your goods

The importance of insurance

Your belongings are kept very secure at Swallowfields Self Storage. We keep them safely in an electronically-controlled, gated compound, with 24/7 CCTV and state-of-the-art access control. The units are sturdy and watertight, and you hold the keys. Is insurance really necessary?

Yes, or at least we’d highly recommend it. Just like you’d insure any of your other belongings – your car, your house, your pet, etc. – insuring the items you keep in storage is no different. Though we never expect to have to claim anything on insurance, it’s important that we always have it there in the unlikely event that something goes wrong.

With Swallowfields Self Storage, adding insurance to your self-storage solution is simple and affordable, requiring minimal effort on your part. We’ll get it out of the way during the check-in process, and then it’s all done – leaving you to rest assured that your items are as protected as they can be.

We offer low-cost insurance for your belongings for just confetti£1 per week for every £1000 stored.

Okay – so how do I add insurance to my storage solution?

It’s simple – just tell us in your enquiry that you want to add insurance to your storage package. We’ll set it all up for you, saving you the hassle of sorting it out yourself. And of course, when you terminate your storage, your insurance will be cancelled as well – you’ll only pay for the length of time you’re using it.

You can always add insurance after you start storing with us, too. Just get in touch with us and let us know; we’ll be more than happy to sort it out for you.

Of course, we don’t force you to use our insurance – if you choose to go elsewhere, we simply ask that you give us proof of insurance, or otherwise sign a disclaimer showing that you don’t want insurance.
