Protecting your pet shop

Pet shop insurance offers protection from a wide range of risks and exposures that could potentially impact your business and ability to trade. It’s essential to ensure you have the right protection in place to safeguard your buildings, contents, stock as well as your liability towards staff, customers and suppliers. Without the right cover in place, you may be personally liable for accidents that occur, which could also jeopardise the future of your business.

Shop insurance for pet shops is designed to cover a number of eventualities, and can be designed to cover your individual requirements. Having arranged pet store insurance for many years now, we’ve gained a thorough understanding of the typical risks you may face on a daily basis.

Liability insurance for pet shops

Pet business insurance offers a variety of covers to give you protection. For instance, liability insurance can protect your interests should your staff, clients or any other visitors to your premises injure themselves. Public liability can cover you if a customer trips over in your shop and claims compensation against you. If you have staff, employers' liability is a legal requirement to safeguard your liabilities for accidents caused at work. Legal costs and compensation awards resulting from accidents can be costly, so these two core covers are fundamental to your pet shop insurance.

Insurance for pet businesses

Your buildings, contents and stock can also be protected against a number of eventualities; including fire, flood, theft, impact damage, storm, subsidence, and much more. We understand that your business is your livelihood, and your ability to keep trading is paramount. Business interruption cover can be included, to make sure that if something unfortunate were to happen, you won’t be out of pocket. For instance, if you suffered flood damage at your premises meaning you were unable to open, business interruption will typically cover your gross profit and fixed expenses while we get you back on your feet. This means you shouldn’t be out of pocket if the worst does happen and your pet shop insurance will support you for more than just the property damage aspect.

Legal protection for pet businesses

Commercial legal expenses cover can protect your business from tax and VAT disputes, employment disputes and compensation awards, as well as jury service and much more.

All of these covers can be tailored into an easy to manage policy providing you with the right protection for your livelihood.

"This is the 3rd year in a row I have used Premierline. They always find me such competitive prices. As a small business owner I really couldn’t afford the prices when I looked online myself especially after having had no work for 7 weeks due to Covid-19. So it was a huge relief to find a policy I could afford. Soon work will start to pour in and I’m now ready for it."

Mrs Bridger, Cleaning Contractor, Devon (Customer since April 2017)

"I'm so pleased to have bought from them. I made a huge saving on my insurance for my small business and they were so helpful and explained everything. A very happy new customer.”

Miss Saunders, Beauty Salon, Altrincham (Customer since February 2019)

"I found the service very helpful. The person I spoke to rang back when he said he would and provided all the information I needed over the phone. It was a simple and seamless process. I rang up to organise my Professional Indemnity insurance and within a couple of phone calls it was all sorted. Brilliant"

Mr Turley, Quantity Surveyor, Londonderry (Customer since June 2019)
