Self Storage in Leichhardt
Although self storage facilities take every precaution to care for your goods, the unexpected does happen … that is why it isn’t called ‘the impossible’, unfortunately! Insurance is the best way to help settle your mind about your sentimental, valuable, or simply your items in self storage in Leichhardt. In most cases, your normal household insurance won’t cover your goods while they are in self storage – and if they did, it would be a lot more expensive to access than dedicated insurance policies for Leichhardt self storage customers. Here are the 10 most important facts about the insurance you take out for your self-stored goods.
- You don’t have to take out insurance
You can choose to bear the risk yourself if you like. We do take precautions against fire, pest invasion, etc – but we cannot make any guarantees.
- You have a 21-day cooling off period
If you decide that you really didn’t need insurance for your goods in Leichhardt self storage, you can change your mind. It’s great to make the decision, see how you feel about it afterwards, then have the freedom to change it if you need to.
- You can cancel at any time
You can also cancel your insurance cover after this, but a cancellation fee may apply. In the cooling off period, you are entitled to a full refund.
- You can cover up to $50,000 worth of goods per module
$50,000 worth of goods can be covered under the one policy. If you need to store more than this value worth of goods in your Leichhardt self storage pods, we can contact the insurer directly.
- You need to keep proof of ownership
Proof of ownership is one of the easier things to arrange for your self-stored goods. You simply need to take clear photos of each item in your module, and if you do this as you are packing them up, it will be much easier.
- You also need proof of value
Proof of value can be a little trickier, but in many cases it is provided by bank statements which show a particular purchase, your retained tax invoices, or a clear photo of the make and model of a particular item which can then be checked against a database.
- You must have a clean insurance record
Our insurance policy for goods in Leichhardt mobile self storage is quite a cost effective one. To ensure it remains that way, the insurer only accepts policy holders who have not made a claim for material damage for loss of goods exceeding $5,000 in the past 3 years, or had insurance refused or an insurance claim declined in the past 5 years.
