Business insurance for retailers, shops and stores

Whether you run a family florist or a high street fashion store, you need a shop insurance policy that can cover the risks you face. Retail insurance from Simply Business starts with public liability insurance so that you're protected if someone makes a compensation claim against you. You can also cover your stock, insure your building, and add employers' liability insurance to cover staff claims. It's quick, quality cover in one simple policy.

Tenants improvements insurance

If you want to make improvements to your rented premises, then it’s worth considering adding tenants improvements insurance to your shop cover.

Anything that you install yourself, such as air conditioning, lighting or specialised fittings, will not be covered under your landlord’s insurance policy. This means that if they’re damaged, by a fire or flood, for example, then you won’t be able to claim for them without having tenants improvements as part of your own insurance policy.

Cover your online retail business

Selling products online? We can cover you for that too with online retailers’ insurance, built for businesses that sell on the web. We offer excellent value and extensive cover, with stock insurance part of the package. Whether you’re a home-based business or high street retailer, our online retail insurance offers a tailored solution.

Cover from £6.82 a month, get insured in minutes. (10% of direct debit customers repay their annual policy in 10 monthly payments of £6.82 or less across all our trades insured. Based on data from 1 October 2019 - 31 March 2020, for comparison only. Cancellation charges may apply, please refer to our full terms & conditions.)

Building your retail insurance policy

Public liability insurance tends to be at the centre of a retail insurance policy. It can step in to pay the costs if a member of the public - a customer or a supplier, for example - is injured or suffers property damage due to your business. This could cover customer 'slips and trips' in your shop, for example, while the product liability part of your policy could cover you if a product you sold caused injury or damage.

Another important insurance for retail businesses is stock cover, which can pay to replace your stock if it's damaged or destroyed (for example by something like fire or flood) or stolen. Plus, if you're responsible for insuring your building, you can add buildings insurance. Remember that if you employ anyone it's likely you need to take out employers’ liability insurance too.

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.
