Aran Insurance Services Group Celebrates the 40th
Anniversary of Subsidiary MiniCo Insurance Agency

MiniCo Insurance Agency, a highly recognized name in the self-storage industry, has evolved into a multi-faceted provider of specialty property and casualty insurance products for a variety of industries and exposures.

Aran Insurance Services Group is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its subsidiary company MiniCo Insurance Agency. Founded in September 1974, MiniCo pioneered insurance products designed specifically for the self-storage industry including tenant insurance and a property and casualty policy for self-storage business owners including innovative specialty coverages designed to address exposures unique to the industry. In 1979, MiniCo introduced the Mini-Storage Messenger, the first trade periodical for the self-storage industry. The highly respected Self-Storage Almanac annual resource was introduced in 1992.

MiniCo is one of the most recognized names in the self-storage industry. The company offers two tenant insurance programs and specialty property and casualty commercial insurance for self-storage operators throughout the United States and Canada.

Aran Insurance Services Group acquired MiniCo in 2010 and expanded the company’s insurance offerings to include a wide variety of specialty property and casualty insurance products. Current programs include fine art and collectibles insurance, agribusiness insurance, sports and activity insurance, contractors liability insurance, and fantasy sports gamer insurance.

Aran Insurance Services Group President and CEO John LaCava commented, “MiniCo’s leadership in the self-storage industry is indisputable. The company’s specialty insurance products and reputation for providing high-quality service to policyholders and agents makes MiniCo a valued asset within the Aran family of companies.”

Co-Founder and Chairman Tim Kenny added, “Aran is proud to celebrate this anniversary with MiniCo, and we look forward to another 40 years of innovation and success in the self-storage industry and beyond.”

Aran and MiniCo will host a cocktail party at the Self Storage Association’s Fall Conference and Trade Show on September 11th at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. All conference attendees are invited to attend the party and celebrate MiniCo’s 40th anniversary along with the senior executives from Aran Insurance Services Group and MiniCo.
