I have my lot insured by a independent broker. Kannapolis Insurance in NC. The agent is Robert Efird. They have been great. Easy to contact in the office. Answered my questions and set up the policy to fit the needs of my lot. VERY nice people who are familiar with storage facilities. It was difficult to find any insurance companies familiar with Storage Facilities. It is so much easier dealing with a group who specialize in Storage Lots. Ask to speak to Robert-704-938-8060

It is very important to deal with an agency who understands the insurance coverage needs of a self storage property. I would recommend Brian Bogdanoff with "IOA- Insurance of America" - we manage over 130 properties and his group has been instrumental to help find great coverage at great premiums for our Owners. Here is his email address:
