Insurance

Store America believes that everyone should have affordable protection for their items in storage. That's why we offer Storsmart Insurance. This protection plan is designed to cover your property from loss or damage while stored in a Store America facility. This is a great alternative for people whose homeowners or renters insurance that won't cover their property when kept in a storage facility. In addition, it might be worthwhile to purchase our protection instead of using your own insurance. Our monthly rates are low; there is no deductible, and monthly rates don't increase due to a claim. Storsmart Insurance is an excellent way to have peace of mind while your items are in storage.

WHAT'S COVERED BY STORSMART?

storsmart covers you in case of loss or damage to your stored goods from fire, lightning, windstorm, hail, weight of ice, snow or sleet, collapse of building, smoke or water damage (except for flood), vandalism, malicious mischief, or burglary. For Burglary, there must be visible signs of forced entry and a police report must be filed. We also cover your goods while in transit to and from the storage facility as a result from fire, collision, or vehicle overturn. Call a storsmart customer care representative for more detail.
