Clothes Shop Insurance - Our Guide to Asking the Right Questions

When you are looking to insure your clothes shop you will be presented with a multitude of choices. Whilst most standard policies will cover you for your own and your employees' protection and for your equipment and stock, it is also really worth considering insurance against malicious fires, broken glass and flooding amongst other risks.

Here are some of the policies which are fairly essential for those with clothes shops.

  • General Liability Insurance - if a member of the public comes into your clothes shop and happens to fall over, you could be facing a hefty lawsuit. Prepare your business against the possibility of such lawsuits by purchasing insurance.

  • Commercial Property Insurance - this protects you against losses to company property, including buildings and inventory. It insures against damages through smoke, water or fire plus more.

  • Employees Liability Insurance - within the UK this cover is a legal requirement. Should any incidents or accidents occur involving employees, you will be protected against claims from them alleging you have been negligent.

  • Business Interruption Insurance - this insurance is well worth considering. Should an incident occur it could save you a great deal of money! It insures a business in the event that an element of the business, such as specialist equipment or premises, become temporarily unsuitable to use. This specialist insurance provides the owner with the income they would have received had the incident not occurred and therefore the business would have stayed open.

  • Theft Insurance - this one may seem obvious but it may surprise you that a lot of clothes shops do not have this insurance! Theft is particularly common within the fashion industry due to the nature of the products being sold and how easily concealed they are. Protect yourself against large losses through theft.

A few minutes thought before committing yourself to a clothes shop insurance policy can significantly reduce your stress levels at a later date should an incident occur, and you be left unsure as to whether you are fully insured or not.
