Yes! You do need insurance when you rent a self-storage container.
Why? Because it’s no different from having home or business insurance — you’re protecting your valuable stuff!
It’s rare for anything to happen to goods in a container, but it isn’t ever sensible to leave your stuff uninsured.
Some self-storage operators, such as the Space Program, include insurance as part of their rental price. That way you have complete peace of mind that your property is covered.
If you’re not sure whether the company you’re considering offers insurance do make sure you ask before agreeing the contract. And check how you pay for it.
