We can provide protection for your stored goods on a new replacement basis.
StoreProtect is an extension to our standard contract that allows us to accept liability for loss
or damage to your goods in certain circumstances.
Our liability under StoreProtect is accepted on a new replacement basis for most goods you
store. However, there are restrictions for some items, such as jewellery, watches, furs, fine
art, beers, wines, and electrical items. We cannot offer StoreProtect for motorcars stored
outside a unit or food/perishable items.
Please read our Self Storage Agreement for full details of the protection we can provide.

To benefit from StoreProtect, you must declare an appropriate new replacement value for all
goods stored (known as the Maximum Replacement Value). This figure must be adequate to
include all goods at all times.

If you do not opt for StoreProtect, our standard terms limit our liability for your goods to a
maximum of £100. You are also required to arrange insurance at your own expense for your
stated Maximum Reinstatement Value for the duration of storage.

Do I have to insure my goods?
Our Self Storage Agreement requires you to either: accept our enhanced liability protection
under StoreProtect; or arrange insurance at your own expense for your stated Maximum
Reinstatement Value for the duration of storage.

How do I calculate my Maximum Replacement Value?

We must understand the total value of all goods stored with us, even if you arrange
insurance elsewhere. It is, therefore, a requirement for all customers to declare a suitable
Maximum Replacement Value and to ensure it remains adequate for the storage period.
Your Maximum Replacement Value must represent the total current cost of replacing all
stored property as new, except the following items where the replacement cost is calculated

Household linen and clothing, motorcars, motorbikes, boats, caravans, motorhomes and
any other motorised vehicle, where the Replacement Value allows for the age, quality,
degree of use, existing damage and consequent market value;

Any goods which cannot be purchased new (such as antiques or works of art, for
example), where the replacement value shall be the current market value; and

Documents, where the Replacement Value shall be calculated as the physical cost of
replacing the documents and/or cost of reprinting, re-issue and/or reconstitution, but excluding the value of the information contained in the documents.

If you opt for StoreProtect:

If the Maximum Replacement Value you provide is less than the actual total Replacement
Value of all of your property stored at the time of loss or damage, then our liability under
StoreProtect will be reduced to reflect the proportion that your Maximum Replacement Value
bears to the actual total Replacement Value (“Proportional Reduction”).
For example: if the total replacement value of your property is £10,000, but you have
declared a Maximum Replacement Value of £5,000, our liability will be reduced by 50%. So,
if £3,000 worth of Your Property is lost or damaged, our liability would be £1,500.
Please read our Self Storage Agreement [LINK] and StoreProtect Addendum [LINK]
for further information.
