Extra layer of protection
A Storage Shield tenant protection plan offers you the peace of mind that you won’t suffer the risk of a huge financial impact if you have a loss.
With a tenant protection plan, you are guaranteed an extra layer of protection for your possessions. You will be reimbursed at replacement cost for your damaged or stolen property (clothing and household linens are subject to depreciation). Protection plan fees are conveniently collected with your monthly rent, and there are no deductibles.
Your homeowners/renters insurance covers the contents of a self-storage unit for only fire, lightning, theft, and vandalism, up to a certain amount.
Typically, your off-premises personal property coverage, unlike a tenant protection plan, has a limit of up to 50% of the policy’s dwelling coverage limit. Some homeowner’s policies have even lower limits for property located away from your home. For example, if you have $75,000 coverage on your personal property under your homeowner’s policy, coverage for “off-premises” property may be capped as low as 10% or $7,500. If you have renters insurance, your items in a self-storage unit are covered for up to 10% of your policy limits.
A Storage Shield tenant protection plan gives you the comfort of knowing that your treasured items are safeguarded against loss.
