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.

Some types of insurance may be a legal requirement. Others will protect you and your supermarket in the event of a claim but are not compulsory. Not having the right insurance or inappropriate cover for your supermarket could be a false economy. For example, if you don't have public liability insurance and a customer trips over a box left on the floor you may be liable to pay costs of compensation. Therefore, it's important to consider all the risks facing your supermarket and match your insurance protection to your requirements which should provide you with peace of mind that a potential claim won't damage your business.

Your charity will likely be interacting with members of the public on a daily basis, which means there's a risk of your charity's activities causing injury, illness or property damage to a third party. If an unexpected situation occurs, then you could be held liable for the damage, and financially responsible for legal fees and compensation. Public liability insurance for charities could cover you in this situation.

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.
