Can I get specialist contents storage insurance?
If your home insurance provider doesn’t cover contents in storage, there are some specialist companies that offer specific storage insurance policies. They’ll also typically cover single valuable items up to £1,000, but limits can vary so be sure to read the policy carefully before you buy.
If you’re using a self-storage unit, you should check whether there’s a ‘how to store your items’ stipulation in the insurance policy. For example, you may be required to lock the unit with a particular type of padlock or store your contents in plastic, damp-proof boxes, rather than cardboard.
