What Kind of Supermarkets Do You Insure?

Each supermarket has varying needs of protection. For example, your supermarket may have an onsite bakery or you may have a large amount of frozen stock that you need to insure. 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 Supermarket Insurance?

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.

What Supermarket Insurance Cover Do I Need?

As you constantly have members of the public filtering in and out of your supermarket, pubic liability insurance is essential. This cover will protect you if a shopper has an accident or their property is damaged as a result of you or your employee’s negligence. If you have employees, by law you need employers liability insurance. This protects you if an employee becomes injured or seriously ill as a result of working for you. Stock insurance should be a high priority. 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 key dates when you would carry goods that are more expensive than usual, like at Christmas for example.

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 Supermarket 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.
