How hairdressers insurance works
Examples of Hairdressers Insurance in action
A £10,000 case of soiled stock
Following severe and heavy rain fall a clothing shop discovers that almost half of their stock has been soiled due to rain creeping in via a leak in the roof brought on by the severe weather. The shop has up to £25,000 worth of stock cover in place and is thus adequately insured and can be compensated via their insurance for the damage caused.
