Specialist Business Insurance for Mobile Hairdressers in one Simple Solution

As a mobile hairdresser, your clients are likely to vary greatly, from busy executives that are time-poor and love the convenience of a hairdresser coming to them, to the elderly who are unable to travel, or a bride preparing for her big day. However, they all have one thing in common: they expect a professional job and maybe a little pampering too. To provide the best possible care, you need adequate business insurance in case the unforeseen happens.

At SME Insurance Services, we can provide a single, flexible insurance policy that covers a wide range of hairdressing treatments and services for mobile hairdressers. Whatever type of mobile hairdressing business you run, we can arrange a bespoke business insurance policy especially for you.

Other Categories of Business Insurance for Mobile Hairdressers

As a hairdresser, you rely on having the right tools and equipment to carry out your job. So you may need cover for these, and your stock, in case they’re damaged or stolen.

Product and treatment cover could provide protection if a treatment goes wrong or your client suffers an allergic reaction to it, and if you employ anybody else in your mobile hairdressing business, it may be a legal responsibility to provide employers liability insurance.

As a mobile hairdresser, you need a vehicle to get from client to client, so goods in transit and cover for your vehicle are other insurance covers to consider. 

Mobile Hairdressers Public Liability Insurance

No matter how skilled and experienced you are, accidents sometimes happen. A momentary lapse in concentration could result in an accidental snip on your client’s ear, or a burn caused by hair straighteners. If you drop chemicals onto your client’s expensive carpet, you could be left facing an expensive bill for replacement.

Public liability insurance for mobile hairdressers provides cover if a client or member of the public sues you for injury or damage. This key element of your insurance could cover you for the compensation payment and any associated legal fees.
