Self Storage Insurance


We take every care so that your belongings are safe and secure whilst in storage with us.  To ensure our customers goods are fully protected against perils outside of our control, such as fire and flood, we require every customer to be fully insured for the duration of their storage. We will organise the insurance cover to begin the moment you move your goods into your storage unit ensuring your personal belongings are fully protected straight away.

Specific Self Storage Insurance

Our self storage insurance is designed specifically for items in storage facilities like ours.  Many home policies do not include storage cover and because our insurance is designed specifically for items in storage, it doesn’t affect your ‘no claims’ discount or claims you might make on your home insurance policy in the future. If you believe your home insurance policy includes specific self storage cover, you’ll need to provide us with a copy showing you are insured at our premises and make sure cover remains in place for the duration of your stay.

Getting the correct cover for your goods

Your quote will be based on the full replacement value of what you’re storing with us (which is why we can’t give you an insurance quote at the same time as your storage quote). For an estimate, add up the full replacement value of the items you are storing and call your local store, where someone will be happy to provide a quote for the cover level required.

Continuous cover for your belongings

Insurance taken out with Make Space is valid from the moment you put your items into storage, right up to the second you take them out of our storage rooms. Every customer at Make Space must-have storage insurance, so you’re fully covered if anyone else’s possessions cause harm to yours. For any more information regarding our self storage insurance policy, give your local branch a call, or send them an email at
