Storage Insurance

When you store something, you want to keep it safe. Most storage locations are safe, but there's always the chance of something going wrong—from a fire that spreads through multiple units to thieves breaking in and looking for valuables to sell, even a well-secured item could be at risk. Storage insurance can help mitigate this risk by providing coverage in case the stored items are damaged or stolen. This coverage is available to both businesses and individuals.

Storage Insurance for Businesses

Does your business store any equipment or inventory at an off-site location? Using self-storage facilities and other 'miniature warehouses' has become more popular in recent years, especially among companies who need just a little extra space, but storing objects in these off-site locations can remove them from the safety of your existing business plan.

Getting the right amount of storage insurance can make sure that anything stored offsite can be replaced if it's damaged while you're not looking. Be sure to ask a Bethany Insurance Agency agent about how much coverage your business needs—standard policies for storage insurance tend to have low limits, so if you're storing valuable equipment or inventory, you'll need to make sure your policy is enough to cover any losses in full.

Retail insurance does not apply to items that are being stored in the company's warehouse, on the shelves of a retail location, or anywhere within its normal offices. Those items are covered by other plans, typically commercial property insurance, and would not benefit from this type of coverage.

Storage Insurance for Individuals

Are you one of the millions of people with products kept in storage? If so, your assets may be at risk—and it's not just thieves you have to worry about. Many facilities are also exposed to problems like mold growth and weather damage, and you may not even know your belongings are at risk if you don't check them on a regular basis.

As someone with items in storage, you want your belongings to be safe and protected until you're ready to take them out of wherever they're being kept. Getting a storage policy now can help ensure that even if the worst occurs, you'll be able to get reimbursed for the items you lost.

Testimonials

Michael, Daniel and the rest of the staff are great to work with. By far the best insurance agents my office has ever had the pleasure of working with. There customer service is second to none and their rates are very competitive. I couldn't ask for anything more. These guys really are the best. I would recommend giving them a call.
Sam from Costa Mesa
We have had our insurance business with Bethany Insurance for a number of years and always receive awesome service. On our last renewal, Mike S helped us save even more while keeping our same coverage. I highly recommend Bethany Insurance and have several family members doing business with them. Thank you Mike and Bethany Insurance.
A M. from Glendora
These guys are awesome! I was referred to Daniel through one of my closest friends. Daniel initially started my car insurance quote when I was fed up with my last agency. Everyone here is super friendly. Someone is always available to take my call. When Daniel wasn't around to help, Chris was able to assist. All of them are super knowledgeable and helped me switch services easily. I called and emailed Chris a lot to get all my paperwork handled. I'm surprised they didn't refuse my business. Jk. They were so helpful that I switched my bros' and dad's insurance policies to them too. Definitely happy they helped. They made the process super easy.
Amy P. from Santa Ana
I'm a mortgage broker and I need a place to refer all my clients, and Michael Shehata has been my number 1 guy. I tell my clients they can shop around and look for the best deal, but I already have. I refer everyone to Mike at Bethany and he never disappoints to beat anyone's rates and service. I would recommend him to all my friends and family as well. Thank You Bethany!
Andrew Y. from Anaheim
I dont go to yelp and post reviews unless it is 5 or 1. I was given a Home Insurance quote for $500 by some other agency initially and Michael from Bethany reviewed it with me to inform that it had minimal coverage. And they also helped me get a quote when Mercury rejected it due to fire hazard issues. Helping me evaluate or smoothen the process is the best value Bethany provides. I will refer Bethany to as many as ​I ​ can.
