What your Internet Traders Insurance Policy includes

Smartphone on a table

Public Liability & Product Liability

Product Liability is not a compulsory class of insurance, although legislation says that the Consumer Protection Act 1987 and the EC Directive on Product Liability (25/7/85) requires those manufacturing and supplying goods to carry some form of product liability insurance. No need to worry, as our internet trading insurance policy includes Public Liability & Product Liability cover as an integral part.

Legal Expenses

This cover protects your business if a claim is made against you and you need to pursue or defend your claim.

Goods in Transit

Should your Internet business deliver goods to your customers, Goods In Transit insurance will cover these goods as they are being delivered.

Business Money

If you hold money from your business at your personal home our policy will provide protection for this whereas your standard home insurance is unlikely to do so.

Stock Damage

Stock Damage cover protects the contents of your premises, which are insured against loss or damage caused by risks normally associated with your trade. This cover also provides protection for automatic increase in stock levels due to seasonal demands such as Christmas.

Employers Liability cover

Employers Liability cover for up to 5 employees.

Benefits of having Internet Traders Insurance
