Is tenant protection for my storage unit worth it?

Published on 2/10/2022

You pay to store with us because your belongings have a value, whether it be a sentimental value, or a monetary value. You wouldn't take the time and spend the money to store stuff if it had no worth. That's why it is so important to consider Tenant Protection options.

Homeowner's Policies sometimes cover storage units, but don't miss the fine print - a lot of exclusions can exist. You may successfully complete a claim only to find out that your premiums rise heavily after. Homeowner's policies usually carry a deductible also. A common deductible of $500.00 can eat up the value of everything you had in the unit, leaving you with nothing. Our protection packages have a $0 deductible. Also, you should be aware that even a single claim can lead to future denied coverage altogether! You don't need to add any more worries to your already busy life, so consider Tenant Protection - for just a few extra bucks a month, you can protect your stored items against many things, including vermin/mice damage, fire and smoke damage, burglary and more.

You don't have to choose the most expensive coverage, either. Gopher State Storage - St Paul offers a few coverage levels to ensure you're covered for the right amount, without breaking the bank.
