When you’re a student, you’re likely to find yourself moving houses more often than you have a good night’s sleep! 

Rather than attempt to cram everything you own in your car and drag it back to your parents’ house before moving into your next home, renting a self storage unit in your university town is a convenient and cost-effective solution for many students.

Storage Insurance For Students

When summer approaches and you find yourself faced with a few months’ gap between having to move out of your old house and into your new one, having a storage unit nearby means you can take as many trips as you need to safely store your belongings for the summer – leaving you (and your parents’ house!) free to enjoy the summer without worrying about where all of your things will go.

When it comes to storage insurance, some students shy away from this extra cost in an attempt to save money – but storage insurance is actually an essential way to save money on storage costs.

Why do I need storage insurance as a student?

You may think that your belongings aren’t valuable enough to get insurance for, but our storage insurance has no excess, providing cover for any value of items up to £50,000, with a single item limit of £7,500. Even just storing things like furniture and kitchen appliances can add up in value altogether, and the cost of replacing these items can be financially devastating for a student – so covering these items with an insurance policy gives you that peace of mind should any incidents happen while they’re in storage.

What’s more, most legitimate storage facilities will state that having storage insurance for your unit is a mandatory requirement. However, often, you will end up paying a much higher insurance premium when shopping directly with a storage facility – so doing your research into third party providers (such as Surewise!) is a sensible way to save money on your policy.

Why Choose Surewise?

We pride ourselves on offering storage insurance an average of 3 times cheaper than premiums offered directly by storage providers.*

*According to research conducted in November 2022 by Proinsight, 90% of customers save money with our storage contents insurance policies compared to the policies provided by storage providers, excluding special offers.

The Telegraph Money conducted an independent investigation that revealed many storage customers were charged up to seven times more than the normal rate for insurance, with others being charged more for insurance than the value of the unit itself – so students, in particular, can benefit by shopping around for insurance.
