PHOENIX, ARIZ. – Recent industry surveys indicate that as many as 70 percent of all self‑storage facilities do not make insurance available to their tenants. This statistic demonstrates that the majority of facility owners and managers do not yet understand that offering tenant insurance is a critical part of an operation’s risk management plan. On February 17, 2011, MiniCo Insurance Agency, LLC, will sponsor the free webinar Tenant Insurance: A Critical Piece of Your Risk Management Plan for self-storage professionals who are interested in learning about the importance of offering a tenant insurance program to their customers. MiniCo’s Jim Clemmensen, Senior Vice President of Insurance Operations, and Keith McConnell, Client Development Manager, will discuss the following topics:

  • Strengthening your overall risk management plan through tenant insurance
  • How tenant insurance provides good customer service to your tenants
  • Lowering some risks of having a claim on your commercial insurance
  • Reducing involvement by facility personnel if a tenant’s property is damaged or stolen
