If you own your shop, you should think about protecting it from structural damage, such as flood or fire. Adding buildings insurance to your policy is straightforward and you can choose a level to suit your small business.
Buildings insurance covers the structural integrity of your shop, your fixtures and fittings, curtains and blinds, skirting board, carpets and plumbed in elements such as toilets and sinks. If something were to go wrong, you would be covered for rebuilding costs, plus any fees. Similarly, if a problem was found to lie in your cables, underground pipes, drains or utilities, you’re usually covered too.
