For the past thirty-five years, the self-storage industry has been one of the fastest growing segments of the United States’ commercial real estate market. In 2007, one in ten U.S. households had a current lease at a self-storage facility. There are now over 50,000 self-storage facilities, which represent a total of 2.2 billion square feet of rentable space.

Real estate investors need to know and understand the requirements of self-storage insurance.  Self-storage facility owners have the added complication of serving hundreds of clients with monthly leases storing thousands of dollars of property at their locations.  The chance of wind, hail, flood, theft and vandalism may strike any facility and leave hundreds of customers affected.  Swingle Collins helps warehouse owners make sure their self-storage facility and mini warehouse insurance is written correctly.

Swingle Collins Saves self-storage & mini warehouse companies between 20—40% on their insurance cost & controls their deductibles.


Swingle Collins’ self-storage insurance program takes into account all the risks that the mini storage industry brings. 

We are able to provide clients with a broadened property policy that includes blanket limits with no co-insurance and low deductibles including wind and hail. 

Our tenant liability and sale & disposal self-storage insurance coverages can be tailored to fit the self-storage owner's needs.  Along with improved coverages, our clients typically gain 20-40% savings from their previous mini warehouse and self storage insurance coverages.
