Safestor® and Safestor Mobile®
Protection While Storing
Safestor® is low cost storage insurance that covers loss or damage for your stored goods from major perils pictured below:
Protect Your Possessions
If your belongings are worth storing, they are worth protecting. While U-Haul takes precautions to provide a safe and secure storage environment, we are not responsible for damage or loss to your stored belongings. For that reason, we offer you Safestor®, a low-cost storage insurance designed specifically for your belongings while stored at a U-Haul Self-Storage facility.
Safestor® is not available at all U-Haul dealerships.
Protect Your Possessions While in Transit With Safestor Mobile®
Homeowners insurance only covers U-Box stored belongings when they are located on your property. U-Haul offer Safestor Mobile® storage insurance so that you can protect your items while they are in a U-Box moving container.
*Burglary coverage only applies when there is evidence of forced entry and a police report has been filed. Safestor Mobile® storage insurance does not cover valuable items, including but not limited to: money, stamps, jewelry including watches, antiques, furs, motorized vehicles, bills, art, property deeds, credit cards or other securities.

Safemove, Safemove Plus®, CDW and Safetow will cover theft of your rented U-Haul equipment if neglect did not play a role in its disappearance. At no time will Safemove, Safemove Plus or Safetow cover theft of your owned motor vehicle, accessories, or personal contents in the towed trailer or rented truck.
Mechanical damage including damage to the transmission or drive train as the result of attempting to rock the truck back and forth when stuck in the ice, mud or snow, is specifically excluded with Safemove, Safemove Plus coverage.

These programs may or may not be in excess of what your current insurer already provides. Please check with your insurer to see if your insurance will cover rental trucks and trailers.
The purchase of Safemove and Safemove Plus® is not required in order to rent a U-Haul truck or trailer but many personal auto policies do not cover rental truck or trailer rentals. However, your personal insurance policy providing coverage on an owned automobile, or other personal policy, may provide additional coverage, and to the extent, ALI may provide a duplication of coverage. You should check with your insurance carrier prior to your rental.
The protection afforded by SLI (if it is accepted), is primary to your own policies.
Safemove Plus®, an additional liability coverage, should there happen to be a bodily injury or property damage claim made against you during the course of your U-Haul rental. Safemove Plus® also provides a damage waiver, cargo protection and medical life protection for "all around" coverage. You and authorized drivers are covered while driving your U-Haul rental truck within the United States and Canada, but only if the truck is rented and returned in the United States. SLI safeguards your personal insurance policy for the first $1,000,000 of losses. Your personal auto policies may or may not cover rental trucks. Your policy should be thoroughly checked for the terms and conditions associated with rental trucks. If you are not sure of the extent of your policy's coverage, ask your insurance agent or your insurance company (U-Haul representatives and agents are not qualified to evaluate the adequacy of your personal auto policy). No credit card companies cover rental trucks. As with any policy, you should check the extent of the coverage carefully with the card issuer. All exclusions, terms and conditions are stated in the policy; it is important that you read the policy carefully.
