What is contents and equipment insurance?

Contents and equipment insurance is built to cover the integral parts of your business, such as your furniture, projectors and printers, as well as portable equipment including laptops and phones.

Whether you work in an office or remotely — our policy can cover the costs of damaged or stolen equipment. Cover for important documents and cash can also be included in this cover.

What does business contents insurance cover?

Like home contents insurance, office contents insurance can cover the furniture in your office that is harder to remove — chairs, desks, storage, printers, projectors and screens — as well as portable equipment like your work phones, laptops and tablets.

Your important documents as well as money you have stored in the office are added as an extension when you take out a business contents insurance policy with us.

The policy covers damage, loss and forcible and violent theft.

Who is office contents insurance for?

Whether you’re a one-person band, a small business or an established operation, if you have office contents and equipment that you’d miss if it was no longer there, this could be the cover for you.

Our policies can cover the costs so that your business can get back to work without losing days of time and money.

What to watch out for in an office and equipment policy?

When purchasing your business equipment insurance policy, be aware that cover limits should be based on the replacement value of your contents, rather than the market value. Also, don’t forget to include any leased items in your totals.

If your business rents an office, check with your landlord before buying business contents cover, as you may find that you’re partially covered through their business insurance.

Business contents insurance FAQs

What level of this cover does my business need and how much will it cost me?

It might seem obvious, but it all depends on how much equipment and other contents you’ve got to insure. It might be useful to think about the worst case scenario and how much would it cost to replace everything in your office. That includes any cash.

Similarly, for portable equipment insurance, you need to define how much it would cost to replace the portable equipment you usually take out and about with you. It’s also important to define the territory within which you want to be covered (be that the UK only, Europe or worldwide), as this will also affect the cost of your cover.

What excess would I need to pay?

Our online office contents and personal equipment policy has a minimum excess of between £100 and £250, depending on what is being claimed for. All other expenses and costs will be covered on our side.

Please be aware, however, that for clients with more complex risks who have tailor-made policies, the excesses do vary depending on the risk.

What else should I do to protect my belongings?

Insurance is your last line of defence and it's preferable if your belongings stay safe and sound in the first place. This is where taking the right preventative measures come in. Make sure you keep your office locked when there’s nobody around or, if you’re hot-desking, don’t leave anything valuable unattended — that’s what lockers are for.

Protecting your portable belongings can be trickier, but ensure you lock your device with a password to secure your data, activate ‘find my phone’ functionality, and if you do get caught out, inform the police as soon as you can.

Can I cover just my portable equipment?

Yes! We have business equipment insurance just for your portable items. Take a look at the details of our business equipment insurance policy.
