Do I need insurance for my self-storage unit?

Now that you decided to place your valuable belongings into a self-storage unit, the next decision will have to be if you insure your goods you are putting into storage.

I will never need insurance!

  • Yes, in a perfect world, no one will ever need insurance. But realistically, unwanted events do happen every day to everyday people like you and me, and there is always the risk of damage to, or loss of, our belongings.
  • When taking out insurance, you can ask your insurance company about storage and contents insurance and change your existing policy to include cover while you store with us.
  • Alternatively, Easy Storage Rockingham offers insurance on your belongings in your storage unit. But remember, when signing up for a self-storage unit, you are not automatically covered. Our friendly, experienced staff will ask you if you want to sign up for insurance. For a small additional monthly cost, you will be covered for fire, theft, flood or any damage.

What if I decide not to have insurance?

  • In the unlikely event of loss or damage, the world as you know it will be instantly turned upside down. You may lose your valued plasma TV, or the wooden furniture handed down for generations. Whatever the case may be – if your belongings are worth storing, they are worth insuring!

What are the benefits of insurance?

Insurance is planning ahead – Having it will ensure you are not left out in the cold!

There are multiple benefits to having insurance on your belongings in your storage unit, for example:

  • Protection against possible extreme weather events
  • Peace of mind, especially while traveling or working away
  • Compensation for your valuables
  • A low cost solution to keeping your valuables protected

Easy Storage Rockingham understands

  • At Easy Storage Rockingham we understand the importance of insurance. We will offer you the best cover for the best price when you book a storage unit at our facility.


  • Unfortunately, we cannot legally offer you insurance on your vehicles while they are stored with us.

  • Just remember to update your storage address with your insurer.
