Are your stored goods insured?

  1. You, the Storer, are responsible for organising adequate insurance to cover your stored goods.
  2. We recommend you organise insurance by purchasing it from a third-party provider or enquire with our friendly staff about our add-on insurance policies.
  3. It is your responsibility to ensure that any policy you purchase adequately covers your stored goods.
  4. While it is possible to store goods without insurance, failure to have an adequate insurance policy will increase your potential liability and restrict the goods you can store.
  5. If you, the Storer, do not have insurance that covers your stored goods, you will be liable, to the extent permitted by law, for any loss to any person arising from the storage of your goods.
  6. For example, if you do not have insurance that covers your stored goods, you may be liable if:
    • the stored goods are lost and / or damaged; and
    • the stored goods cause any loss and / or damage to the facility or the property of others.
  7. Further, if you do not have insurance, the types of goods that you can store are limited. For example, under clause 14 of the Storage Agreement:
    • the total value of your stored goods cannot exceed $2,000; and
    • you are not permitted to store goods that are irreplaceable, such as currency, jewellery, furs, deeds, paintings, curios, works of art and items of personal or sentimental value.
We recommend you purchase insurance for added protection and peace of mind.

Latest Updates from Guardsman Self Storage

Covid-19 Updates at Guardsman: Thursday 26th March 2020 Dear Valued Customers, As the concern of Coronavirus (COVID-19) increases, the purpose of this email is to ensure our clients’ that Guardsman has created and implemented an internal COVID-19 Workplace Risk Management Plan. We know that the virus is spread from person to person through close contact with an infected person, from touching objects or surfaces contaminated by the sneeze or cough of an infected person and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth. As Guardsman provides a service whereby an employee is physically present at the office, we want to reassure you that guidelines are in place for our staff to ensure good hygiene practices are followed. These guidelines and expectations include:
  • Washing their hands frequently with soap and water as a first preference or using an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
  • Covering their nose and mouth with a tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing and disposing of tissues immediately after use.
  • Avoiding in all instances physical contact with anyone and where possible, avoid close contact with anyone within the work environment or outside the work environment who has flu symptoms.
  • Re-scheduling of non-essential business meetings for our General Manager and Directors
  • Staying at home and self-isolate if a mild cough or a low fever develops; and
  • Regularly cleaning desks, door handles, keypad machines and light switches.
As a customer, we ask the following;
  • Please avoid, where possible, coming to the office and instead paying over the phone, via the pay now link on your invoice, direct bank transfer or BPAY;
  • Execute good hygiene. We have a bathroom located just behind the office and our customers are encouraged to wash their hands as required whilst in the facility. Hand sanitiser will be available in the office. If you need to discuss anything with us it is recommended you use either of these options prior.
