Do I need insurance for my unit?

Yes. All customers require contents protection for their stored goods throughout their time in our self-storage facility.

Our Self Storage Agreement requires you to either: accept our enhanced liability protection; or arrange insurance at your own expense.  For our Contents Protection we charge based on the Maximum Replacement Value of your stored items.

We recommend you take out our contents protection cover in the first instance, even if you wish to arrange your own policy or are unsure if you already have cover. This ensures your goods are protected and we will refund you the Goods Protection charges in full once proof of cover is supplied within 14 days of your move in.

Please refer to our Contents Protection page for more information. Contents Protection

How do I calculate a full replacement value?

We must understand the total value of all goods stored with us, even if you arrange insurance elsewhere. It is, therefore, a requirement for all customers to declare a suitable Maximum Replacement Value and to ensure it remains adequate for the storage period.

Your Maximum Replacement Value must represent the total current cost of replacing all stored property as new, except the following items where the replacement cost is calculated differently:

  • household linen and clothing, motorcars, motorbikes, boats, caravans, motorhomes and any other motorised vehicle, where the Replacement Value allows for the age, quality, degree of use, existing damage and consequent market value;
  • any goods which cannot be purchased new (such as antiques or works of art, for example), where the replacement value shall be the current market value; and
  • documents, where the Replacement Value shall be calculated as the physical cost of replacing the documents and/or cost of reprinting, re-issue and/or reconstitution, but excluding the value of the information contained in the documents

Moving into your Unit

How do I move into my unit?

Chipping Norton site : Please bring a padlock to secure your unit or you can buy a keyed or combination one from our reception.  Our reception is open from Monday to Friday 9-6pm or Saturday 9 – 2pm and you can also buy boxes and packaging there too to meet all your other needs.

Before your move in date, you will receive a text message to your mobile phone with instructions on how to set this up.
