I know, it’s months away but it’s never too early to start planning for Hurricane Season.
Hurricanes are unpredictable and can cost thousands of dollars in damages. We can’t do much to stop them but with some pre-planning we can minimize their impact.
Now is the time to check your insurance policies If you do not have storage insurance, check your home owners or renters insurance policies to make sure you are covered for items stored off of your property. If you are, check to make sure you have enough coverage and increase if necessary. If your policies do not cover you items in storage, there is still plenty of time to purchase the coverage you need. At StoreRight Self Storage in Brooksville we offer an optional insurance policy from Badder Insurance. The application is quick and simple, it covers a wide range of disasters and is relatively inexpensive. It can be added or cancelled at any time

Keeping an inventory of the items you have in storage with pictures and receipts will be very helpful should you ever need to make a claim. While the weather is nice, plan to spend some time in your unit, take some photos and organize your items.

Check the free space in your unit. In the event of a storm, if you had to move items from your home into your unit, would you have enough space? Or do you have room in your garage, shed or enclosed patio where you could put lawn furniture and equipment. outdoor grills, etc until a storm passes? It is not recommended that you pay for a half empty storage unit all year but knowing how much space you can use in an emergency is a very good idea.

There will be plenty to do if we hear  “the storm will make land fall in 72 hours”, worrying about your storage unit doesn’t have to be one of them
