Odds are, nobody goes to the trouble of putting something into self-storage unless they want to keep it, and keep it safe. After all, that’s what self-storage is supposed to be: a secure solution for keeping your stuff safe, accessible, and out of the way. Of course, at Storage ‘R’ Us, we do everything in our power to keep all of your treasured belongings safe and secure, from 24/7 digital video monitoring to fenced and walled perimeters and electronic gate access. We keep your self-storage unit as safe as we can make it, but it’s still a good idea to invest in self-storage insurance, too.

Why is that? The simplest reason can be found by looking back at some of the tornadoes that have blown through Oklahoma over the years. All the locks, fences, walls, and security cameras in the world can’t protect your belongings against the rage of Mother Nature. If a tornado hits one of our self-storage locations, then you’ll be glad that you had self-storage insurance on your grandma’s antique furniture.

Storage ‘R’ Us takes great pride in keeping our storage facilities as secure as possible, but unfortunately, severe weather sometimes makes all our efforts for naught. That’s why we always recommend that our customers purchase self-storage insurance while storing belongings. In your home or apartment you have renter’s insurance or homeowner’s insurance to protect your belongings in the event of disaster, insurance for self-storage works in much the same way.

By law, a storage facility in the State of Oklahoma cannot insure the property that’s stored in one of our units. All property insurance has to be purchased and maintained by you, the renter. Talk to your insurance agent or one of our friendly staff about the best ways to get self-storage insurance for all the stuff that you’re keeping at Storage ‘R’ Us—whether it’s priceless antiques, or just priceless to you. The good news is that some homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policies cover your personal property wherever it’s located, which means that it may extend to belongings that you’re keeping in self-storage, but it’s best to check with your insurance agent to be sure.

So whatever you’re using self-storage in Oklahoma for, from household items to business records, and from furniture to fishing equipment, it’s a good idea to make sure that all your treasured belongings are insured in case the worst should happen. But of course, even with insurance, we’d always rather that the worst not happen, so it’s also a good idea to store your stuff in the safest, cleanest, and friendliest self-storage around.
