Tenant Insurance

Are your valuables safely stored? As much as we would like to think our belongings are packed and organized as safely as possible at the safest and cleanest storage facility in town, there is still the possibility of a natural disaster or tradgey that could strike at any time. For added security, it is important to also have some type of insurance on these items. Most homeowners and rental insurance policies do not cover items stored outside of the home. Before you chose to store, check your insurance policies to see if you will need additional coverage. If you are not covered, it would be a great idea to get tenant insurance through your self storage facility. It is affordable and the cost can be added to your monthly rental payment.

 Storage World and Storage World on Wheels offer tenant insurance through StorSmart Insurance. There are pamphlets and information available to you at each of our locations. Tenant insurance will cover the value of the items insured at today’s value up to the amount of insurance coverage purchased. Our tenant insurance covers damage from: wind, fire, hurricane, tornado, earthquake, vandalism, burglary (with a visible sign of forced entry), lightning, smoke, hail, building collapse and explosion. It does not cover items of higher value such as jewelry, antiques, artwork, important documents, firearms or furs.

Ask any of our super knowledgeable associates at Storage World about tenant insurance and they will be happy to explain how it works. The claim process is simple and can be done online or over the phone with a StorSmart representative at 888-545-SMART.

We, at Storage World, pride ourselves in providing top-notch service to our customers. Stop by your nearest location and let us help you with all of your storage needs.

Remembering September 11, 2001

Let us all remember those who lost their lives on this tragic day in history.  On September 11, 2001 at 8:45 a.m., the first plane crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center. Then, 18 minutes later Flight 175 crashed into the south tower. At 9:45 a.m., the pentagon was struck by Flight 77. The fourth flight was highjacked and then crashed into a rural field in Western Pennsylvania. Close to 4,000 civilians and first responders were killed and about 10,000 people were wounded in these events. This day in American history will never be forgotten. Like most of you, I still remember exactly what I was doing at the time of the terrorist attacks. I was sitting in Biology class on that tragic Tuesday. It was a terrifying day, one that will never be forgotten. The news showed it all, the whole country was shaken to its core. No one knew when or where the next attack would occur.

President George W. Bush addressed the nation that evening declaring, “Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve…We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them.”

September 11 with always be a day that ignites fear and mourning but most importantly, American pride! On that day and for years after, Americans joined together to help one another pick up the pieces of their lives and recover from the attacks of the day. Osama Bin Laden and his terrorist following cannot break the American spirit! Let us never forget what this country can do when we all come together as one!

We, at Storage World, would like to hear how you remember this day in September. Comment below and let us know where you were at the time of the attacks or your recollections of American pride in the days following.

God Bless America!
