If It's Worth Storing, It's Worth Insuring!

Although incidents in our self storage centres are extremely rare, we believe that you should take out insurance just in case the unthinkable happens.

The leading insurance companies have endorsed our storage centres (while some of our competitors are not) and you can take insurance with us when you move-in. Utilising our convenient pay-as-you-go facility means you save money and only insure for the time in storage, no more


As a service to you we can arrange insurance against the following perils: Fire, lightening, explosion, earthquake, wind, storm and tempest, water damage and leakage, impact by vehicles or aircraft, malicious damage, riots and civil commotions, theft (subject to visual of forced entry)

Your goods will be insured for Indemnity Value. This means the value is the replacement cost less an assessed allowance for condition, age, wear and tear

Please ensure that you declare the total market value of your goods to avoid under insuring


The policy is subject to a minimum excess of $100, or as agreed with our Manager


QBE Mercantile Mutual Ltd (ABN 28 087 142 569


The Premium for the insurance is only

  • $2.20 per thousand dollars of value per month
  • It is simply added to your rent and paid monthly when you pay for your space.

How to Take Out Insurance

Simply sign in the box on our storage agreement when you move-in to accept the insurance and we will do the rest

In Case of a Claim

Claims must be made at the time of discovery of loss or damage. Claim forms should be collected from our Centre Manager. All negotiations are made directly with the insurance company.
