Insurance documents

We're not responsible for any items contained within a rented garage. It's up to you to make sure they're insured.

You'll need to provide a copy of an insurance certificate for the vehicle to be stored in the garage. If you've registered your vehicle with the DVLA as off-road, then we need to see your Statutory Off-Road Notice (SORN) instead, see GOV.UK - Make a SORN.

If you're using the garage to store other items, you'll need to sign a disclosure admitting you're responsible for the items stored.
