How it works
Examples of Butchers Shop Insurance in action
Keeping the windows covered
The front window of a butcher shop is damaged during an altercation between members of the public outside the premises, resulting in the need to replace both the old-fashioned glass and valuable vintage display across the window display that have been a feature of the store for many years. Thanks to full buildings and contents cover on the property, the butcher is able to replace the window and update the display with new items with only a small excess to pay.
