Retail insurance overview
Retailers take many shapes and sizes from butchers to bakeries, florists to furniture shops. They can be based on the high street or operate online through an ecommerce shop. Each face a unique set of risks relevant to their trade, however there are also a number of similarities in the covers that a retail business insurance policy would provide.
We understand that shops face exposures to unforeseen events that could cause injury to customers or employees, or damage to premises that interrupts the businesses ability to trade. Shop insurance can protect you against these eventualities and much more.
You may be looking to set up retail insurance or specific e-commerce insurance, or dependent on the nature of your business you may require a combination of the two.
Retail insurance policies will typically contain a number of covers that are all combined into one convenient package, designed with retailers in mind. Public liability cover and employers' liability cover are a fundamental part of your retailer insurance policy to safeguard your livelihood against accidental injury to anyone that visits your shop or one of your employees.
Another priority would be your contents, stock and even buildings, if they are owned by you. Shop insurance policies will also typically include cover for money, goods in transit and business interruption cover, which can protect your income and cover your expenses if your premises suffers damage meaning you are unable to trade. All of these covers can be included within retail insurance policies such as newsagents insurance, butchers insurance and bakery insurance.
