If you’re storing stock on your business premises, it’s just as vulnerable to theft and damage as your tools and machinery. If losing it would cause serious damage to your cashflow, our stock insurance option will help set your mind at rest, freeing you up to get on with the task in hand. Use our simple form to build an insurance policy that includes this cover option.

What is stock insurance?

Stock insurance covers your stock in the event that it is stolen, damaged or destroyed, paying out the money to replace it. The cost of the policy varies depending on the value and quantity of the stock insured and the insurance payment is based on the stock price of the item (not the retail price).

Simply Business chief operating officer, Chris Slater, explains the ins and outs of stock insurance, why you might need it, and how to get the right level of cover.

What does stock insurance cover?

Your stock insurance will cover the cost price of your stock. If yours is damaged, destroyed or stolen, you’ll get the funds to buy new stock based on the cost price of the old stock (not the RRP).

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.
