What insurance do shoe shops need?

Public liability insurance is often an important cover for shoe shops along with many other types of business, as it can protect you if someone is injured or their property is damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.

Another important consideration is any specialist tools or equipment you have – including things like computers. Often, work revolves around these essentials, so our business equipment options will help take care of the day to day risks, letting you get on with the job in hand.

Shoe shop cover details

  • Make sure you read your policy documents carefully and that you understand any exclusions that may apply
  • If you rent your shop premises from a commercial landlord, check with them to see if you need your own buildings insurance
  • Contents cover and fixtures and fittings cover insure different types of items within your premises, so check what you need
  • Have you thought about front of premises cover, in case your shop exterior is damaged?
  • If you employ people, even in your own home, you’re legally obliged to take out employers’ liability insurance. Not doing this could lead to a heavy fine

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.
