Arguably the best way to find an insurance policy for your shop is to compare multiple quotes.Would you agree?
Which are the best bargains when it comes to shop insurance? A panel of shop insurance brokers could make it simple for you to find the right policy at a great price without wasting time shopping around.
Why would I want to buy shop insurance via this website?
Rather than just working with one insurance company or broker, there is a whole panel of brokers who have their own contacts with insurers. Therefore, there are more policies to choose from.
Wouldn't it be more efficient and cheaper to buy my insurance through a price comparison website instead of a broker?
It is great for home insurance or car insurance price comparison sites, but business insurance is much more complex since every business has its own unique type of shop, staffing levels, products, financing, location, and many other things that affect the price.
Because of this, a broker can be more efficient at finding the right policies to suit your business. A good broker will be familiar with your industry, and will know how to make sure that you're buying the most effective, cost-effective policies at the right prices.
But aren't price comparison sites free to use? And don't brokers charge for working for us?
It is incorrect that price comparison sites are free. Most of them charge insurers a high commission for every policy they sell. Also, many don't show you quotes from insurers that don't pay them, so you might miss out on some really good deals.
Insurers pay brokers a commission for each policy they sell, but the premium you pay remains the same as if you purchased the policy directly from the insurer.
Some insurers do not pay commissions and the broker may charge a fee. Do bear in mind, though, that because no commission has been added to the premium, some no-commission insurers can offer much better basic premiums and you could still find a cheaper policy, even with the fee taken into account.
Additionally, an experienced broker may be able to suggest better, and perhaps cheaper, ways to save money on your shop insurance, instead of using an automated price comparison system.
Are there any essential insurance policies I need for my sportswear shop?
Insurance policies cover many risks, but some are more important to have than others. Brokers may offer policies that cover many different risks, and some of these may be good choices. Here are a few examples: -
A certificate of Employers' Liability insurance should be clearly visible to your employees if they are injured, or hurt, while working for you. Such insurance protects you against the risk of liability if your employees are injured or hurt, and you must have it by law.
A public liability policy is not a legal requirement, but some people believe in making it so. This insurance protects consumers who are injured or suffer financial loss while doing business with you.
Buildings and Contents Insurance should be in place whether you own or lease your sportswear store to cover damages from problems such as fire, carelessness, flood, or vandalism to the building, fixtures, and fittings.
Additionally, you may wish to insure your stocks, your reputation, your own health and wellbeing, or your business from closure due to external events.
