Compare Music Shop Insurance Quotes

Running a music shop carries a variety of risks that may be sensible to insure against. These risks are in part due to the nature of a music shop often being filled with high-value instruments on display/ in stock rooms as well as equipment, furnishings, high public footfall and possible employees at the business to consider.

As the owner of a music shop it’s important to understand how your business would cope if it were to suffer an unexpected event, a fire or theft for example, and decide whether your business could benefit from having cover in place to protect you.  Insurance is also a legal requirement in certain areas; if you have employees for example, you will most likely be required by law to have employer’s liability insurance in place.

Making sure you have the right covers in place is important which is why it is useful to talk to a shop insurance specialist who can offer advice and create a bespoke policy suited to your needs.

Music Shop Insurance Renewals

When the time comes to renew your policy, we recommend taking the time to repeat the quote process as staying with the same provider is often not the cheapest way to renew.

What Types Of Cover Might Be Included?

Employer’s Liability Insurance: If you have employees at your music shop then you will most likely be required by law to have this cover in place. It can help protect you should an employee suffer illness or injury as a result of their work for you.

Buildings/contents Insurance: If you rent your premises then commercial buildings insurance is usually arranged by the landlord. It covers the building in a number of events including fire and flood damage. You can check the details with the landlord. Contents insurance is usually arranged by the tenant and this will typically cover damage, loss or theft to furniture, tools & equipment.

Stock Insurance: Music shops will usually have a significant amount of capital tied up in stock, so you may want to make sure that your insurance policy includes cover for your stock should it be damaged, lost or stolen. It is important to note that any claims will cover the cost price of your stock and not the retail price.

As well as the above, there will be other types of cover that you should discuss with an insurance specialist when you are provided with your quotes.
