All Secure Self Storage is proud to announce our New Insurance Policy for Customers


Why you need to take out Insurance whilst your goods are in Storage? We know your possessions are valuable enough to store them, so why not insure them against the unforeseen. Whilst the facility does everything possible to ensure your goods are safe and secure there are some things that cannot be guaranteed to protect your goods against such as fire and flood. Note: The storage facilities insurance does not cover your units contents.

Unfortunately the majority of home & contents insurance policies either don’t cover your valuables in storage, or if they do offer any cover, this is on very restrictive terms provided you have remembered to advise them first.

As a solution to this, All Secure Self Storage has partnered with Wallace McLean Ltd Insurance brokers, who are specialists in Self Storage Insurance and have developed a tailor made insurance policy to meet your storage insurance needs.

Customer Insurance – Revised Policy Offering

Wallace McLean has developed a brand new Customer Insurance Policy including Transit Insurance options.

Major Policy Benefits / Changes 

Benefit / Change Existing Product New Offering
Maximum Sum Insured any one Unit $60,000 $75,000
Policy Excess (Standard) $500 $250
Policy Excess (Natural Disaster) $2,500 $2,500
Gradual Damage Limit No cover $10,000
Mould, Moth, Insect, Vermin Damage No cover $5,000
Transit Insurance option No cover To match the value of goods insured in storage.

There is no change to the existing cost of insurance (the exception of transit insurance as it is an optional add on to your policy).

Transit Insurance – The Transit Insurance options are an optional add on to your Policy and have also been included on to this certificate. You will need to tick which option the Customer wants (either option A or B) and specify the Sum Insured.

The 2 options of cover available are:

  • Option A: Premier (an all Risk based cover) Not for Owner packed / transported goods
  • Option B: Basic Cover (Defined Perils cover to be used for Owner packed / transported Goods
  • Transit Insurance is only available when the customers elects to have Storage Insurance.
