Value of Renters Insurance


July 13th, 2021

Did you know there are between 45,547 and 52,000 self-storage facilities in the U.S.?

Can you say whoa??? I was pretty taken back by that statistic as well! Spare Foot gives you a better brake down of the different industry statistics for the U.S. Now, when we understand that self-storage is highly needed, we also understand there are many more underlining issues that can follow. Therefore, Seguin Storage wants the best all-around security options and will require all tenants to have some form of renter’s insurance.

Because we are wanting the best for our customers we have decided to partner with storsmartinsurance . Their approach of holding the highest standards for their customers and standing for integrity, value and peace of mind, we wouldn’t go any other route. With a minimum of $9 you can protect up to $2,000 worth of valuables if it was caused by: (faqs goes into further detail)
  • Fire or lightning
  • Windstorm or hail
  • Weight of ice, snow or sleet; or collapse of building
  • Smoke or water damage (minus flood)
  • Vandalism, malicious mischief, or burglary
Yes, we understand that adding more fees can be hard to accept, but wouldn’t you rather keep your items protected for a few extra dollar’s vs losing all your valuables and having to start over? I know I would! Lets take this into consideration Amazon shows us that a simple couch can range from $200-$1,000 depending. Wouldn’t you feel more comfortable paying $9 and not having to worry about furniture for your new house? Again, I would!!

Now, we do have the option for customers to use their own homeowners policy for their stored goods, but there can be some short term and long term issues with that. Say for instance you used your own homeowners policy for your stored goods, depending on the characteristics and quality of the policy they will only cover certain needs, which some don't involve actual stored goods. Another issue could come in the long run. Take for instance an individual who only needs storage for two months. If their homeowners policy is used and they need to file a claim on stored valuables they could be stuck for the remainder of their policy with higher premiums on every item they own like their house, cars, boat, RV, etc. So in all reality there can be a economic benefit from taking out a separate renters policy rather than using your own homeowners policy. Wouldn't you rather spend a few dollars a month rather than spending a few dollars for years? I Would!!!

No matter what Seguin Storage wants the best for our customers and are looking out for their best interest. That is why we are implementing such a secure structure throughout our facility and are holding the highest standards when it comes to security. With the help of our customers and the ethics of our business we hope to fulfill your every need. Whether it be feeling secure or taking the precautions to stay secure!
