What Type of Barber Insurance do you Need?

Regardless of your skill and expertise, accidents happen. The good news is the right barber insurance will protect you and your business if you face a close shave.

We can arrange a barber insurance policy that's designed to suit your business. If you prefer to purchase your salon/shop insurance online, no problem! Use our digital platform.

Our barber insurance cover can include:

Public liability insurance

Imagine if a client injures themselves after tripping over your clipper cable, or you accidentally snip someone's ear during a trim. If a client, supplier or a member of the public suffers illness or injury or their property is damaged – due to your negligence, barber public liability insurance cover protects your business. It will cover any legal fees and compensation costs you're required to pay.

Employers liability insurance

In most cases, this insurance is a legal requirement if you employ staff for your barber business, whether casual, temporary or permanent.

Property damage

Consider the impact on your clients and your business if any tools of your trade, stock or supplies were lost, damaged or stolen. You’d have no option but to cancel your appointments. Property insurance will cover the cost of replacing your valuable barber kit, ensuring minimal disruption to your business.

Product liability insurance

If you offer treatments or use products that could harm your clients, you need product liability insurance to protect against potential costly legal fees and compensation costs. We offer a standard range of treatment covers, but our team can provide guidance if you need something unique.

Goods in transit insurance

If you offer mobile barber services, you'll need to protect your valuable equipment and any stock when travelling to and from your appointments. Goods in transit insurance will safeguard your valuable tools and products from damage while on the move.

Our team can help you choose the right coverage if you're unsure about your insurance needs. Also, if you primarily use one vehicle for work, think about commercial vehicle insurance.

For unexpected incidents, such as a loss of access to running water, additional cover is available, which will protect you in the event of disruption to your business.

You may also want to consider personal accident cover to help keep the money coming in should an accident leave you temporarily unable to run your business.
