Mobile beauty insurance FAQs

Whether you’re new to buying business insurance or you’ve been trading for a while, here are the answers to some commonly asked questions about mobile therapist insurance, from paying monthly to working from home. You can also check out our business insurance FAQs.

A waxing accident can be covered by the public and product liability cover in your mobile beauty insurance policy, from burns and other injuries to property damage resulting from a spillage.

Claims can run into thousands of pounds for an injury or serious property damage – for example, if you dropped hot wax onto an expensive rug or handbag – so check the level of cover you need. A Simply Business policy provides between £1 million and £10 million in product and public liability cover.

Even if you’re all set up at home and don’t often travel for work, your business still faces specific risks.

Public liability insurance is a popular cover for many home businesses, as it can protect you from a claim if someone is injured or their property gets damaged while they’re with you. Lots of businesses also choose to add tools, business equipment and stock cover, for the essential items they keep with them at home.

You’ll also still need employers’ liability insurance if you employ anyone – for example a temp you hire during the busy wedding season or an assistant. It’s usually a legal requirement, so don’t leave it out, even if you’re based at home.

Yes. It’s important to make sure you have the right type and level of insurance for the different types of work you do. For example, if you’re a plumber, you may also do building work on certain jobs – you’ll need additional cover for this, but you can have it all on the one policy. When you start your quote, you’ll have the option to add another trade or profession to your policy. If you need to add a third trade, give us a call on 0333 043 8527 and one of our insurance experts will help you set up your policy in minutes.

Yes. You may start offering additional services that require you to use different skills or carry out different tasks. If you find yourself in this situation, it’s important to give us a call on 0333 043 8527 to update your policy before you take on this new work. If you don’t have the correct type of cover in place for the work you do, you may be unable to claim on your policy if something goes wrong.

You can choose the payment type that suits your business and cash flow best. Some customers prefer to pay in one go, while others prefer to pay a regular monthly amount, like you do with lots of other bills. Simply Business offer three ways to pay for your policy:

  • one-off credit or debit card payment
  • BACS payment
  • Direct Debit

If you choose to pay by Direct Debit, our credit provider, Premium Credit, pays Simply Business the full amount for your policy up front. You then repay Premium Credit in 10 monthly instalments.

This will depend on whether you have employers’ liability insurance in place. Public liability insurance is designed to protect your business against the consequences of legal action brought by members of the public for injuries or damage to their belongings. But when it comes to your employees causing injury or damage, this protection only activates if you also have employers’ liability insurance.

If you employ people, you’re required by law to have employers’ liability insurance.

There’s one exception here. Family businesses that aren’t incorporated as a limited company are not legally required to have employers’ liability insurance. The government defines a “family business” as one where all your employees are closely related to you (as a spouse, civil partner, sibling, child, parent, grandparent, grandchild, step-parent, stepchild or half-sibling). So if you run an unincorporated family business and you choose not to get employers’ liability insurance, it’s important to know that your public liability insurance wouldn’t cover you against damage or injury caused by your team.
