Why should retailers consider business insurance?
When you are dealing with customers, suppliers and members of the public, stock, money and cyber systems, there is a high risk for things for unwanted accidents to occur.
These are some of the main types of risks that retail businesses are exposed to:
- Slips, trips and falls– something as simple as leaving a box of stock on the floor or an unsecured electrical cord can quickly become safety hazards, causing the potential for an injury to occur. This may not be covered by the ACC.
- Theft– no matter how secure your store may be, an unfortunate reality of the retail environment is the threat of shoplifters stealing your stock.
- Machines breaking down– when you rely on things like refrigerators to keep you stock cold and fresh, the last thing you want is for them to be out of action.
- Natural disasters– when events like fire or storms strike, the damage to your store’s building and contents can be devastating, potentially closing your business doors while repairs take place.
- Cyber-attacks – all it takes is for hackers to get into your online customer database or EFTPOS machines to cause havoc.
Some of the types of insurance you may want to consider as a retail business:
Public Liability*- When you’re working with the customers and members of the public everyday, Public Liability insurance is a no-brainer. A Public Liability policy will cover third party property damage and or personal injury that is not covered by the ACC.
Business Insurance*-Fire, storm, theft and accidental damage are just some of the factors that can damage your business assets in your retail outlet.
Business insurance can cover you for:
Contents*: Protects the contents in your shop against damage or loss caused by theft, accidents, natural catastrophes or vandalism.
Stock in Trade*: protects the stock you hold for trade.
Building*: The policy covers the building and structure of your shop in the event of damage from storms, fire, natural catastrophes or other extreme weather events.
Money*: Ensure your cash is safeguarded against theft or damage, whether it is stored within business premises, or transit.
Business interruption*: The policy covers loss of revenue that can occur when you are not able to run your business due to an insured event.
