What is shop insurance?

Owning one or more stores comes with a unique set of risks. Your customers, premises, stock and outgoing costs should always be protected, and with adequate shop insurance, we can help you achieve this.

Store insurance is a form of cover that helps protect your company against various claims and risks. You never know when a claim might be brought against you, which is why it’s important to be covered should the unexpected happen. From employees getting injured during their shift, to customers getting ill after buying your products, shops can face a number of different concerns.

Why do I need store insurance?

Your store is no doubt your livelihood, which makes it even more important that you have adequate shop insurance in place. If a claim is brought against you and you are not covered, it could affect your whole business.

What services does Gallagher provide?

We understand the many risks faced by retailers. Whether you own a single shop, multiple large shops, or are part of a group, we can help you to find suitable shop business insurance.

Here are some services that we offer here at Gallagher:

Employers’ liability insurance

As a shop owner, it’s likely that you’ll have employees, casual workers, contractors or temporary staff working for you. When you employ members of staff, it’s a legal requirement to have employers’ liability insurance. Should your employees get injured in the workplace or become ill due to your negligence, this type of insurance helps to protect you.

Shop public liability insurance

Every day, you will have customers and visitors come into your store. As the owner, you are responsible for their welfare. Shop public liability insurance helps protect you if someone is injured, or their property is damaged because of your business.

Accidents do tend to happen when you least expect them, so if a customer slips and is injured in your store, they could decide to take legal action – potentially leaving you in a vulnerable position.

Shop contents insurance

Having shop contents insurance in place can help you replace the contents of your shop if they are stolen, damaged or lost. From fixtures and fittings such as shelving, to till systems, it’s essential you consider that your business equipment on the premises is also protected.

Business interruption insurance

If you are unable to trade for a while due to reasons such as a fire or a flood, business interruption insurance will help to protect you against lost sales and costs incurred until you are able to open the store again.
