Home / Tenant Protection
We understand that the personal property you store in your storage unit is valuable and important to you. However, our storage facility is not responsible for property stored at our facility. That is why our lease requires that each tenant maintain insurance coverage on their stored property.
Some, but not all, homeowners’ and renters’ insurance policies cover property stored in self-storage facilities. You should contact your insurance agent to confirm whether your insurance policy will cover the property you store at our facility, and ask your agent about applicable policy deductibles and exclusions.
As a convenience, we make available to our tenants a Self Storage Tenant Insurance Program administered by SafeLease. This insurance coverage satisfies your lease obligations, and premiums are collected monthly when you pay the rent for your storage unit.
The Self Storage Tenant Insurance Program is underwritten by one of the most reputable carriers in the marketplace. Note that the operator may receive remuneration for its administrative services, such as assisting in enrolling tenants in the Program and collecting monthly premiums, and that affiliates of the operator may own a de minimis interest in the Program administrator.
Again, you are not required to purchase insurance through SafeLease/Laing Self Stroage, but you are required to maintain insurance. Please see below for answers to Frequently Asked Questions about SafeLease Tenant Protection Program.
