Retail Insurance

Need cover for your store, boutique or brand’s space, stock and equipment? Retail insurance protects you and your business from loss, damage or liability.

What is Retail Insurance?

Operating a retail business offers unique rewards as well as important risks for you to consider. With shoppers coming and going, scenarios like broken windows or fittings, burglary or injury claims when someone slips over are common.

As a retail-based business, your equipment and stock are essential for generating income. It makes sense to ensure that your income-providing assets are protected. If you lease your space, it’s also likely that your landlord will specify certain levels of cover such as glass and public liability.

With theft, extreme weather and lawsuits on the rise, we can help you get the protection you need to enjoy business without worry.

How can we help?

Having a customisable policy is important to protect the survival and growth of your business when something doesn’t go to plan. Every business is different, and yours may require different protection to the one next door.

We’ll help you compare the price with the value offered for each of your retail insurance options, so you can make the best decision for your needs.  

For every new business quote and renewal, we break down all important changes and comparisons in plain English.

Retail claim example

Lisa owns a boutique retail clothing store in a popular shopping location. Coming into the Christmas period – one of her busiest times of year – extreme weather patterns result in a severe storm that damages her store, equipment and stock.

Lisa’s store relies on the increased sales of the holiday period to remain solvent through the quieter months, and the storm damage leaves her unable to trade.

Because Lisa has a retail insurance pack, the damage of her goods, equipment and store are all covered and are able to be replaced. She also chose to add business interruption to her insurance, so while she’s unable to open at her usual location, the loss of expected profits is covered, along with any extra costs incurred for her to keep trading (e.g. hiring temporary equipment).
