What is Book Shop Insurance?

If you run a book shop, you may want to consider getting insurance. In fact, it is a legal requirement to have certain types of insurance, e.g. employer’s liability insurance if your book shop has employees.

Book shop insurance can protect against different risks depending on the level of cover you have in place. Your policy may include cover for stock, equipment, premises, furnishings, employees & customers.

At Quote Goat, we make it easy to compare book shop insurance quotes from a panel of leading insurance providers. After submitting your details once, you will receive quotes from up to 5 book shop insurance providers with whom you can discuss your exact requirements.

Do I need insurance for my book shop?

Yes and no. If you employ staff, you will almost certainly be legally required to have employer’s liability insurance which can protect your business against should an employee suffer injury or illness as a result of working for you.

If you own your business premises with a mortgage, the mortgage provider may require you to have buildings insurance. Business buildings insurance can cover you if your book shop premises is damaged or destroyed.

If you rent your business premises, it is usually your landlord’s responsibility to arrange business buildings insurance, but it is always advisable to check this with them. In this sort of arrangement, the landlord often passes on the cost of cover onto the business owner.

You may also want to cover contents insurance to protect equipment & furniture inside your shop, which typically covers you against theft, damage and loss.

Given the very nature of a book shop, having stock insurance could mean the difference between your business surviving an unexpected event or having to shut down. With stock insurance, you are typically protected if your stock is damaged, lost or stolen, with the policy paying out to replace the stock at cost price, not retail price.
