What Types of Bike Shops Do You Insure?

Each bike shop has varying needs of protection depending on a number of factors. Your bike shop may have a complex range of bicycles ranging from road and cyclocross bikes to mountain and hybrid bikes. Why not speak to one of our advisers and let them know your requirements, and we’ll look for a policy that best suits your needs.

Why Do I Need Bike Shop Insurance?

Some types of insurance may be a legal requirement. Others will protect you and your bike shop in the event of a claim but are not compulsory. Not having the right insurance for your bike shop could be a false economy. For example, if you don’t have public liability insurance and a customer trips over equipment or boxes on the floor you may be liable to pay costs of compensation. Therefore, it makes sense to match your insurance protection to your requirements which should provide you with peace of mind that a potential claim won’t damage your business.

What Kind Of Bike Shop Insurance Cover Do I Need?

For bike shops, stock insurance should be a high priority, especially given the value of the products you are selling. Without your stock, you wouldn’t be able to run your business. This type of cover protects you if your stock is damaged or stolen and needs replacing. It can also be increased around busier seasonal periods when you may offer bikes and equipment that are more expensive or exclusive.

What Optional Cover is Available?

As we work with a panel of specialist insurers, we can arrange the insurance you want and need. All you need to do is tell us what you would like including in your policy and we will arrange that for you.

How Much Does Bike Shop Insurance Cost?

The cost of your insurance policy depends entirely on your needs. Our flexible policies can be adapted to fit your requirements and your budget too. For example, multiple options may be available from our panel of insurers – each with differing features and prices. We will find you several possibilities so you can make an informed decision on which option is best for you.
