Safestor® – Mobile Storage Insurance

Protect your stored belongings from unexpected and unforeseen losses while contained in a U-Haul U-Box storage and moving container, and avoid out of pocket costs for damage done to the U-Box, U-Box cover, or rental trailer. We offer Safestor mobile storage insurance, a low cost optional insurance package specifically designed for the mobile storage industry.

Most homeowners or renters insurance policies only cover U-Box containers when they are located on your premises. So, to insure your goods in transit and in the warehouse, you should purchase Safestor mobile storage coverage.
