Business Contents insurance

Protect those all important items of contents inside your business premises

With Contents Insurance cover sourced by The Insurance Octopus you can protect yourself and your business in the event of theft or damage being caused to the items inside your office. Whether you work from home or out of a dedicated office, we can research insurance policies to protect what’s important to your business. As a business you might for example find that your PC, printer and other electrical items make up the majority of the costs in your office or commercial property. And if you have large numbers of computers and electronic equipment inside your premises, experiencing a loss through a theft, fire or flood could result in a significant cost to your business. Having the right cover in place means you’re protected – with the policy there to help cover the costs of replacing your contents should the worst happen.

What is business contents insurance?

Business Contents insurance is designed and tailored to protect all those important items inside your office or commercial premises. These are the all important items you use to successfully run and manage your business, and as a general rule, your contents are the items and things that could be taken with you if you decided to move. So typically could include items such as monitors, computers, printers and perhaps even artwork. Ask yourself, how would your business operate if you had to replace important items such as computers if the worst were to happen? If like many businesses the prospect of replacing much or all of your contents following a loss or disaster sounds insurmountable then it’s likely that you could benefit greatly from having commercial contents policy for your commercial property. Our policy is designed to protect your businesses items against not only theft or damage but also potentially from fire and flooding.

How it works

Examples of contents insurance in action

£20,000 worth of office contents, stolen!

A business based out of a city centre office has taken out an Office Insurance policy with a number of add-ons including contents cover. During one weekend at night while the office premises are closed the business suffers a break in. The thieves manage to escape with over £20,000 worth of electrical equipment including computers and laptops, all items that are crucial to the running of the business, as well as some artwork. Following the break in and subsequent theft of goods from the office, the business owner is forced to make a claim. With contents cover in place with a sum insured of £50,000 the business owner is able to successfully make a claim for the loss of £20,000 worth of business equipment and contents that were stolen during the break in.
