MiniCo Makes Reporting a Claim Easier & Faster

MiniCo's experienced in-house claim professionals have a high level of specialization in adjusting property and liability claims for self-storage risks. Reaching the most positive outcome for policyholders in a timely manner begins with the first notice of claim, and that first step requires the participation of the insurance agent. The preferred – and most efficient way – to report claims to MiniCo is via our website.

MiniCo's forms for reporting property and general liability claims have been updated recently. The new forms are significantly shorter and more streamlined than previous versions to make it easier for agents or policyholders to submit a first notice of claim.

Solar Panels at Self-Storage Facilities

The demand for solar panel installations for both commercial and residential properties has boomed over the past several years. The Solar Energy Industries Association estimates that a new solar project was installed in the United States every 100 seconds in 2018, more than doubling the U.S. solar market in one year alone. There are more than 1.9 million solar installations nationwide today, and the association estimates the number will top 4 million by 2023.

Self-storage properties offer many opportunities for solar projects, and it is critical to provide the appropriate information about your clients' properties to insurance underwriters. Whether your client is adding solar panels or incorporating solar in new construction, MiniCo requires that solar panels be disclosed to your underwriter.

MiniCo needs additional information regarding solar panels at self-storage facilities to include the following:

Engineering report demonstrating that building(s) can support the weight of the solar installation

Copy of the lease outlining responsibilities and agreements with local utilities

Documentation about the installing contractor including experience, licensing, and proof of insurance

Country where solar panels were manufactured
