Booking Self Storage Insurance
Booking affordable storage insurance with MetroBOX is actually pretty easy. It costs just $2 per month per $1,000 of cover and the insurance product is underwritten by Allianz, who are specialists in storage insurance.
Your storage insurance usually covers the improbable possibility of a fire, flood or theft at the storage facility (but be sure to read through the PDS to fully understand the cover). But with MetroBOX, all your belongings are safely locked up in a fire-compliant, secure facility and stays put until you’re ready to redeem it all.
In fact, if you already have home and contents insurance, you should check with your agent to see if your policy already covers your belongings for fire, theft and flood while they are in secure storage. If that’s the case, you will already be covered.
In addition to storage insurance, there are two other kinds of insurance you should be aware of:
- MetroBOX’s standard Public Liability Insurance (up to $20 million): This is automatically included whenever you book storage with us.
- Removals Insurance: Our MetroBOX movers are careful and experienced, but storage insurance and public liability insurance won’t cover the rare situations of road collision, accident or unavoidable damage that may occur during transportation, loading or unloading. If you want 100% peace of mind we recommend you take out Removals insurance, like the Carts Removals Insurance online application here. It takes less than 5 minutes to get a quote and get covered.
