How can I make sure my items are safe while in personal storage?

While we will take care of the security measures, there are a few key things that you can do to keep your belongings safe and secure within your personal self storage unit.

  • It’s important to choose a unit that is large enough to accommodate all of your items but not too large – this will help minimise the risk of mould and mildew growth within your storage space.

  • Properly pack and organise everything. Whether you are planning to store belongings for just a few weeks or much longer, it is essential to create a tightly packed and labelled system that makes everything easy to find and keep track of.
  • Invest in quality packaging material such as cardboard boxes, plastic bins, protective covers, dividers, or shelving.
  • Elevate heavy objects off the ground by using packing materials like pillows, Styrofoam blocks, or even wheels attached to the bottom of furniture.

Will my insurance policy cover my belongings while they’re in personal storage?

Traditional insurance policies can be tricky with cleverly-worded disclaimers. That is why we offer additional insurance so you will never have to worry about whether or not your existing insurance policy covers the contents of your storage unit.

Whether your current insurance provider doesn’t cover self storage units, or if your existing policy simply isn’t enough, StorageWise has the solution you need. So why wait? Trust the experts and get the assurances you deserve with StorageWise today!
