Unique Coverages

Universal Insurance recommends every facility have Customer Goods Legal Liability and Sale and Disposal Liability. By representing only carriers that understand the industry, these coverages are included when choosing Universal Insurance.

Customer’s Goods Legal Liability

Owning a self-storage facility makes your relationship with customers similar to that of a landlord. The facility normally would not be responsible for the tenant’s goods, but if the tenant’s goods are damaged it may create a liability issue. For example, if a customer’s property is damaged by the weather because the facility did not properly maintain the roof, the tenant may feel the facility was negligent. Customer’s Goods Legal Liability would come into play if the facility was found liable for the damage to tenant’s property. This coverage could also provide legal defense, even if a claim is found to be groundless, false, or fraudulent.


Sale and Disposal Liability

Every self-storage owner will be faced with the unenviable task of evicting a tenant. Sale and Disposal Liability provides protection against the act of wrongfully removing, selling or disposing of a customer’s property. There is also coverage for defense against allegations.
