If it's worth storing, It's worth insuring

Goods are not automatically insured when in storage.

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.
