Self-Storage Claims and Rising Financial Exposures

The trend of record-breaking wildfires, hurricanes, hail, wind, and other catastrophic weather events has made property owners and their insurance agents more aware of the potential for insurance claims and out-of-pocket expenses. The rising cost of reconstruction further emphasizes the need for insurance agents to review coverage with their clients to ensure that policyholders understand the financial exposure they may face in the event of a catastrophic loss.

MiniCo's claims professionals advise that insurance agents and policyholders engage in an annual coverage review to address deductibles, policy limits, wind and hail deductibles, deductible buy-back solutions, coverage limits on roofing, and coverage for cosmetic damage to roofs and other structures.

For the most efficient handling and resolution of self-storage claims, MiniCo recommends reporting claims via our convenient online forms or an ACORD form. Reporting a self-storage claim through an email only (without a MiniCo or ACORD reporting form) may lead to delays if essential information is missing.

REMINDER: Please notify MiniCo immediately upon receipt of a notice of possible litigation or retention of an attorney involving any policyholder. Giving our claim professionals the maximum time available to respond is crucial to the effective resolution of the situation.
