Yes, You Should Purchase a Customer Goods Protection Plan for Your Self Storage Unit


Protecting your valuables is never a bad idea – especially when it means sleeping easier at night. If you’re renting a self storage unit, the odds are the items inside are of some value to you. Because these items mean a lot to you, it’s important to purchase a Customer Goods Protection Plan to protect them from the “what ifs” of life.

Common Self Storage Losses

No one likes to think about the losses that can happen while your belongings are stored in a self storage facility, but smart people know it’s something you have to be prepared for. What if there’s a roof leak and your family photo albums are damaged by water? Or what if there’s a fire and your furniture has smoke damage? Neither of these situations are covered by a typical homeowners or renters insurance policy. That’s where the Customer Goods Protection Plan comes in.

What is a Customer Goods Protection Plan?

The Customer Goods Protection Plan is a low-cost solution designed to help protect your belongings – and your wallet – from potential damages or loss. When purchased with your storage unit rental, it activates immediately. All you have to do is fill out the form and make the first payment.

Why a Customer Goods Protection Plan?

For only $12 a month, you get protection from the day you move in to the day you move out. Best of all, unlike homeowners or business Insurance, the Customer Goods Protection Plan does not have a deductible. With $2,500 in protection, you don’t have to pay anything out of pocket until after that point – which is also great because you don’t have to worry about your homeowners or business insurance skyrocketing just because you filed a claim.
