    When I worked at a self storage facility in college,

    I never enjoyed chasing down late payments. Most of the time people would simply forget to pay. Sometimes it was no simple task to get them to drop by the facility to make a payment. We have found this is normally the case at most facilities.

    If the facility is big then managers may spend the whole month tracking down delinquent payments.

    Offering tenant insurance for your self storage facility increase your profits for your facility. It increases revenue by giving a chance at proverbial "checkout" to giving clients another avenue to spend more money.

This is not a gimmick, people have differing levels of value and a tenant will know if they are or are not storing things of importance to them when using your storage unit. The likelihood is, that if a tenant feels they are storing things that they need to protect then they will opt-in for tenant insurance. 

    Offering your tenants peace of mind when they store their stuff on your property. This value and peace of mind is the foundation of a quality relationship between renter and rentee.
