Business buildings insurance is exactly what it sounds like – cover for the building you run your business from. It can cover you if your business premises is damaged or destroyed, paying out for repairs and rebuild costs.
A large fire broke out at a policyholder's business premises, caused by an electrical fault. The property was significantly damaged throughout and needed extensive repairs, which were covered by their policy.
The customer's stock and contents were also damaged, but those are not covered under business buildings insurance and require separate cover.
As well as the building you run your business from, it’s also important to think about what’s inside it, such as your contents and furnishings. You can combine your building insurance with covers like contents insurance, business equipment cover and stock insurance.
Buildings insurance covers your fixtures and fittings as well. This includes things like:
Run a home-based office? You can add cover for this too. Our buildings and content insurance can protect a broad range of businesses.
Run a shop? You can get shop front insurance as part of our tailored shop insurance policy.
To make sure your business buildings insurance covers everything you need it to, keep the following points in mind:
