Storage Insurance

Many of our customers have been confused as to whether their homeowner’s insurance or tenant’s policy provides them with all the necessary protection while they’re enjoying one of our storage facilities.

According to industry experts at Cowan Insurance, homeowner’s insurance tends not to fully cover any outside storage for long periods of time. Normally homeowner’s insurance only covers theft for up to 30 days – natural disasters such as flooding or fires are not included. For instance, if you’re staging your home in order to sell it and you choose our convenient Toronto Storage facility, your homeowner’s insurance will likely only cover you for 30 days. Therefore if your goods were to be damaged by a natural cause, such as a fire, your property would not be covered under your home owner’s insurance.

For your ultimate peace of mind, our Mississauga, Toronto, and Scarborough storage facilities have made it easy to set up insurance. Cowan Insurance is one of the largest insurance brokers in South Western Ontario and will satisfy your storage unit needs with convenient, affordable and easy to understand pricing. You can establish coverage through Cowan Insurance Brokers Customer Insurance Program by applying when renting your storage locker at Storwell Self Storage and payment can be made together with your regular rental fees for your convenience. This program provides the appropriate protection on your personal goods including:

  • Broad form coverage that will protect you against most losses.
  • $500 deductible unless otherwise stated on the certificate of insurance.
  • Limited coverage on most electronic and business goods.

It does not include coverage on automobiles, motorcycles, boats, recreational vehicles, any form of currency, securities, jewellery, watches, precious stones, furs, or garments trimmed with fur.

All this peace of mind is available for only $2.00 / $1000.00 coverage plus PST per pay period.
