Building your business contents insurance policy

With Simply Business, can add covers to tailor your policy so it fits the particular needs of your business. You may want to consider these covers:

  • Public liability insurance is an important cover for many businesses. It can cover the claim if someone is injured or their property is damaged because of your business.
  • If you hire anyone, you’re usually required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance, which covers claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.
  • Professional indemnity insurance covers businesses that provide a service or give advice to clients, as it protects you if you give faulty advice that causes financial loss to a client.

Why get business contents insurance?

There are a few reasons why businesses might want to consider business contents cover:

  • The equipment your business relies on might be expensive or specialist, with some items difficult to replace. This cover helps make sure you can carry on if it’s damaged, lost or stolen.
  • Events like storms, fires, and thefts are usually unpredictable. Business contents insurance can protect against the unforeseen and give you peace of mind.
  • Whether you run a shop, a salon or a cleaning business, you can tailor your policy to your specific needs. We’re business insurance experts, so why not get a quote today?

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
