Store Ur Box Insurance
 
We recommend that our customers take out Store Ur Box insurance protection as you can never be too careful that something unforeseen may happen! The reason you are storing with us is that your things are special and important so this is why they should be protected.

When we say ‘Store Ur Box insurance protection’ don’t worry we are underwritten by  Allianz, one of the world’s best known insurers and financial services groups. While arranging protection is a simple process, there are some important base details you need to be aware of;
  • Our insurance charges are monthly and will be integrated with your monthly storage payment
  • Your goods will be covered  to the total value you have requested, however the value will be spread equally across the total number of individual cartons, crates or suitcases you want insured. For example if you insure 5 crates for $10,000 the individual crates are covered for $2000 each.
  • The total amount insured can’t exceed $10,000 per individual box, crate or suitcase.
  • If  you change the number of items you are  storing, the original agreed value will still be spread across the remaining number under our care  unless you change the insured value direct with us.
  • The insurance does not cover the loss of or damage to individual items stored within the crate(s) unless the whole crate is lost or damaged
Here’s some more important stuff on the insurance cover we provide;

Cheap Storage in Auckland

Finding cheap storage in Auckland is not easy! A secure and affordable storage option is a necessity especially for students who are studying away from home, travellers and home DIY-ers for the items that they cannot take with them or space to store during a renovation. People who are looking to move house may also require storage for a short period of time while waiting for their new home to be ready. And if you are running a business at home, over time you may find that you’ll need a better way to organise and store your business records and paperwork. Most storage facilities in Auckland are not designed for affordability or ease of use. Customers are tied up in complex contracts and forced to pay for the service for months on end, irrespective of how long they need the service. These self storage facilities in Auckland charge by lot size and make you pay for both the space your goods utilise and the space that is left vacant. All of this adds up to exorbitant rates that most people who are looking for a quick fix and convenient option just couldn’t afford. At Store Ur Box, we do things differently.

Flexible Self Storage Facilities

Our self storage facilities are nothing like other storage spaces in Auckland. Our storage services in Auckland cater to you, the customer, and the facilities are built for maximum security, durability, and safety. The best part is that you can submit and retrieve your goods at any time online. Our drivers collect and drop your items right at your door, so you never have to personally visit our self storage facilities in Auckland.

You can use our high-quality boxes for self storage in Auckland. We offer high-quality, robust, and well-built boxes, suitcases, and crates that come in all sizes and shapes. They are designed for holding all of your goods without damaging anything. Alternatively, you can choose to pack your items on your own - some of our customers use their own suitcases. Please note if the packing is inadequate and does not fall in line with our guidelines, we will have to repack your stuff in our boxes. If this happens, we will first notify you before we proceed.
