We offer property and casualty insurance from carriers that understand Self-Storage. Our carriers recognize the low rebuilding cost and minimal foot traffic of a typical facility.

A CLIP allows operators to fully insure the risk of our industry-leading Tenant Protection Program, SecureLease. Our CLIP offers the finest terms offered at the most competitive rates allowing facilities the best value in tenant protection to their customers. Our policy terms are generous enough to cover the risk of any existing Tenant Protection Program.
