Goods in transit insurance covers any business items which have been lost, damaged or stolen during transportation. For instance, you may move goods from a wholesaler to your home, and then to your salon the following day. But what if poor packaging or loading leaves them damaged, or you have simply misplaced them along the way? Ordinarily, rebuying these items could put a massive dent in your company’s finances. However, with Salon Gold’s goods in transit insurance, we cover the costs on your behalf, protecting your business’s finances and giving you peace of mind whenever you transport goods.

Our goods in transit insurance has a standard limit of up to £5,000 worth of items in transit, in any vehicle owned or leased by you within Great Britain. You can increase this limit for an additional premium if you wish. Please note that there is an excess of £350 when you claim under this section of your policy. Your goods in transit will cover you while moving goods anywhere in the UK.

When you take out any policy with Salon Gold, you will automatically receive goods in transit insurance, alongside many other protections, including public liability insurance. This safeguards your business if any activities cause harm to a customer or third party, or cause damage to their belongings.  Another protection under our standard policy is treatment risk cover, which is designed for health and beauty workers seeking a safeguard in the event that their treatments or advice cause physical or psychological harm to customers.

All of our policies are adapted to meet the specific needs of our customers. We know that no two businesses are the same, so give your livelihood the best possible protection with Salon Gold’s tailor-made insurance package.
