Frequently asked questions
Is my equipment covered away from my premises?
We can insure your equipment away from your premises - simply enter the value you would like insured on the quote form next the question 'What is the value of office contents and/or business equipment which you wish to insure whilst in the confines of your office and outside of your office?'
Do I need business interruption cover?
An often overlooked cover, business interruption cover protects against the financial losses you would incur (or additional costs in working) as a result of an interruption to your business' activities.
An example would be if your workplace was flooded. A flooded building can take months to dry out, and, as a result, you would have to find an alternative workplace. This could have a severe financial impact on your business' operations - including the additional costs involved in renting an alternative premises, or losing out on projects you can't complete because you aren't based in your normal workplace.
In short, if you feel your business would struggle to survive an interruption to its normal activities, you should give serious consideration to business interruption insurance.
What's the excess?
£250 is the excess for all office insurance covers.
Is my equipment covered if I leave it in my car?
Yes, provided that:
- The property is concealed in a locked boot or stowage area within the vehicle
- All points of access to the vehicle are securely locked and security devices put in full and proper operation
- Force is used to gain entry to the vehicle and such entry causes external and visible damage to the vehicle
