Risks For You Salon And How Insurance can Protect Your Business

Does a Hairdresser Need Public Liability Insurance?

Hairdressers & Beauty Salons should insure for Public & Products Liability as there is risk of injury to their clients as a result of their services, slips and falls in the salon, or injuries sustained by the products that they use.

Insuring Your Fit Out, Contents & Stock

If you own a salon, insuring your fit out, contents and stock for such events such as fire, storm, flood and other natural perils should be considered. The sum to replace all of these after an event could easily mount up to the tens, if not hundreds of thousands depending on the size of your salon. Would you have the available funds to replace all of the assets if a fire were to destroy your salon?

Business Interruption - Insuring your turnover

Business Interruption protects your turnover if an insurable event such as a fire were to disrupt your trade. Business Interruption Insurance can pay for your fixed and unfixed expenses such as wages and rent whilst your salon was being repaired back to it’s original state after events such as a fire.

Theft & Attempted Theft

Theft Insurance for a salon is to protect your physical items such as computers, POS machines, contents items, and stock against burglary. It can also protect your rented premise from damages that were sustained from a burglary, or attemped burglary.

However, depending on your personal circumstances, insuring your money could still be considered. Money cover can protect your cash whilst kept on site during the day, overnight, or in transit to the bank.
