Talk to the Storage Facility

Many storage facilities offer reimbursement for things that are damaged or stolen depending on the unit size they are kept in. You may be able to get your hands on supplemental insurance through the company you store your stuff with.

Inquire about Offsite Coverage

Your personal homeowners insurance may already cover some of your belongings that are kept in a storage facility, but it probably won’t be full coverage. Find out what’s covered in your current policies and get supplemental coverage for the things you need.

Get Special Insurance for the Expensive Stuff

If you are storing rather expensive belongings, such as jewelry and artwork, ask your insurance provider to add a floater to your current home insurance policy. This will ensure that you get full cash-value if you have to file a claim.
