Customer Storage Insurance Coverage

Storage insurance coverage

Storage insurance coverage is recommended for all tenants.  Since the Storage Facility owners have no ownership of the contents and are not performing as a warehouse, our insurance does not cover any contents or impact on the tenant’s valuables. We supply access to Storage Insurance through Ponderosa Insurance company LLC, known as SafeStor insurance.  This is automatically billable and payable through our Self-storage management software.

RV Or Vehicle Storage

RV Or Vehicle Storage Units

We have 20/30/40 foot parking at our location at 26763 Highway 34, Glenwood, IA if you are looking for an RV Or Vehicle Storage unit.  Each size has a different width due to how hard it is to park a longer unit at the very front angle of their turn in.  20’s- 10 wide; 30’s- 12 wide; 40’s- 15 wide.  Although you could park an RV in any of these sizes, it is easier with a wider width to make the “front” turn.   Or ask for an end parking spot, so you are doing 90-degree parking, but have the whole driveway to back in with, without a turn.
