Due to the high quality of our centres we have been endorsed by the major insurance companies and offer insurance at all our locations. Many of our competitors have been unable to reach a similar standard and cannot offer insurance of your goods.
Kennards provides an easy and simple programme customers can participate in. This insurance is structured in a pay-as-you-go system so you only have to buy what you need, and automatically renews when you pay.
Although incidents in our self storage centres are extremely rare, insurance of your goods in storage is highly recommended. Customer's goods are not automatically insured when being stored. It is the customer's responsibility to be insured. Kennards has an easy simple insurance programme you can participate in.
When you choose to Store with Kennards Self Storage, you receive “Free Insurance Cover” with your first month of Storage.
When moving into storage there can be a lot going on, free insurance for the first month means one less thing to think about! There is no obligation to continue after the first month, and customers are reminded to check that what they are storing is eligible under the Terms & Conditions of the policy and not excluded.
Level of cover is capped at $30,000, with a $250 excess payable by the customer for each and any claim.

Your goods will be insured for Indemnity Value. This means the value is the replacement cost less an assessed allowance for condition, age, wear and tear.
Please ensure that you declare the total market value of your goods to avoid under insuring.
The standard policy enables cover up to $100,000 loss. If you need additional cover, this can be arranged by request.
