Business Customers; You undertake to us as follows:
That prior to bringing the Goods onto the Site You have taken out adequate insurance in respect of the Goods under a policy which covers at least Normal Perils (as set out below) with a reputable insurance company and will not cause or allow that insurance cover to lapse whilst the Goods or any of them remain on the Site and you acknowledge that you shall be responsible for all uninsured risks including Normal Perils; and
Normal Perils in this Condition mean loss of or damage to Goods caused by fire, lightning, explosion, earthquake, aircraft, storm, flood, bursting and/or leaking pipes, theft, riot, strike, civil commotion, malicious damage, and impact by vehicles.
We recommend that the insurance cover that you take out is for a sum which is at least equal to the replacement value of the Goods stored in the Unit from time to time and require you to provide evidence of such insurance cover prior to granting you access to the Unit and while your goods remain on site.
In order to give you more protection we may offer you the opportunity to benefit from our insurance policy using a policy available through us. You may apply for this by completing a separate application form.
We do not give any advice concerning such insurance and it is for you to make your own judgement (with the help of your insurance broker) whether such insurance is appropriate to cover the Goods and risks to them.
We require that all Domestic Customers entering into contracts of storage also take out and maintain during the period of the contract of storage, adequate Insurance cover using the Range Removals Ltd policy available solely through us. No storage contract will be entered into by us unless this insurance policy is also taken out. Please note that no form of insurance policy other than the Range Removals Ltd Policy will be accepted by us.
We recommend that the insurance cover that you take out is for a sum which is at least equal to the replacement value of the Goods stored in the Unit from time to time and while your goods remain on site.
We do not give any advice concerning such insurance and it is for you to make your own judgement whether such insurance is appropriate to cover the Goods and risks to them.
We do not insure vehicles that are stored in our car park at our storage facilities. It is the responsibility of the vehicle owner to make sure that adequate insurance is taken out on any vehicle using the car park.
The physical securing of any vehicle is also the responsibility of the vehicle owner as the gates to the car park are open from 6am to 10pm seven days a week
16.21 We will be responsible for physical injury to or the death of any person or for fraud or willful default or that of our agents and/or employees. However:
Subject to the above, to the extent that our liability to you is not limited under clauses
below, our total financial responsibility to you however arising (including any claim that you may have under below) will come to no more than 120% of the value of the Goods as set out by You in Part 1 of this Storage Agreement, even if the actual loss you suffer is more than that.
we will not be responsible for any loss or damage caused by us or our employees or agents in circumstances where there is no breach of legal duty or care owed to You by us or by any of our employees or agents, such loss or damage is not a reasonably foreseeable result of any such breach and any increase in loss or damage resulting from breach by You of any term of the Agreement.
If You are using the Unit in part or in whole for commercial purposes then, subject to Condition 16.20 above we shall not be responsible for loss of profits (whether direct or indirect), loss of business opportunity, loss of goodwill, loss of contract nor for other economic loss (direct or indirect) arising out of a breach of the Agreement.
In certain cases we may not be able to allow you access to the Unit or Site, or carry out some of our other obligations because of something that is outside our reasonable control. This could include any natural disaster, riot, strike or lock-out, trade dispute or labour disturbance, accident, breakdown of plant or machinery, fire, flood, electrical power failure, act of terrorism or environmental or health emergency or hazard, or entry into any unit including the Unit or the Site by, or arrest or seizure or confiscation of Goods by competent authorities.

The total value of the Goods stored in the Unit from time to time will not exceed that value unless you have agreed this in writing with us.

You allow to access the Unit or Site; or
