Self Storage
Insurance

Instant Cover for your Self Storage Unit or Container

SAGIC has been providing insurance since 1909. Let us take care of your insurance needs too.

Self Storage insurance protects your valuable possessions when you need to place them in self-storage units or containers for a period of time

Self storage companies usually offer their own insurance, but it doesn’t mean that you have to take theirs. In fact it’s often much more cost-effective to purchase it from a specialist insurer.

Our policies can cover purpose built storage units with internal and external units and storage facilities with storage containers. Please see our policy wording for more details on exactly what security and facilities units are required to have to be covered.
