Although people in Atlantic Canada are anxious to have a reliable place to keep their valuables, it's important that these greenhorns know what to look for in a facility and the importance of getting the right renters insurance.
Allan Barkin, owner of Jiffy Self Storage in Toronto, recently told Global Toronto that having the right insurance is crucial to protecting owners should an emergency or an accident occur that involved their items. Barkin suggest renters get insurance up front that covers theft, fire and damages.
