Losing your stock would cause serious damage to your business and overall cashflow


Stock insurance cover is usually purchased in conjunction with your business contents insurance. It can be arranged on a fixed sum insured, have optional seasonal increases, or if you do regular stock takes and values vary we can arrange cover on a declaration basis so you only pay for what you need.

We can also arrange a separate policy for stock if it is moved between locations by utilising a “stock throughput policy” which will also cover your stock in transit.


Do I need Stock insurance?

If your business suffers a flood or fire for example, which causes your stock to be damaged and rendered unsaleable, then the right cover will ensure you have the money to replace it.   Cover should also incorporate work in progress to cater for the increase in value as raw stock moves through your business, to saleable product.

It’s important to ensure that the sum insured reflects your maximum exposure.


What does Stock Insurance Cover?

This can be tailor made to suit your business but the key categories are:

  • General Stock. Tends to cover the standard stock but is obviously unique to a business, depending on the area they work in. Eg. Clothes shop it will cover the clothes, car sales, it will cover the cars.
  • High Risk Stock. This cover is for high value stock that might be attractive to thieves. Eg. Cigarettes, alcohol, computers and mobile phones. You may have to review the security of your premises as part of purchasing this cover.


Optional extras

Depending on your business sector you may want to consider possible extensions to your cover.

  • Shoplifting
  • Accidental damage
  • Deterioration of chilled or frozen stock
