What Do You Get With Contents Insurance?

Contents insurance provides protection for any possessions and equipment you keep in your salon. You can select precisely how much cover you need, but you must choose the maximum amount you might require at any point during the policy period. Failing to do this may mean that insurers will be unable to pay the full amount if you make a claim. Cover is provided on a “new for old” basis, which means that even if you purchased an item secondhand, you’ll need to insure it for the full replacement cost. There is also an excess of £350 in the event of a claim.

When working out how much to insure for under the contents section, you should be sure to include the new replacement value of the following items:

  • Trade furniture (sofas, chairs, backwashes etc)
  • Office furniture (desks, chairs, cabinets etc)
  • Equipment (hairdryers, clippers, steamers, towels etc)
  • Utensils
  • Employees’ and customers’ personal effects
  • Documents, record cards, business books
  • Computers
  • Laptops
  • Computerised till/booking system
  • All other contents

All of our salon insurance policies include contents cover as standard and you can also tailor the policy to meet the needs of your business. The most important covers for your business are included as standard. For example treatment risk cover is included and will protect you if a treatment goes wrong, or if a client suffers an allergic reaction. Accidents are often unavoidable, so it’s essential that your business is properly insured.
