What does takeaway shop insurance cover?
These two types of liability are similar but not quite the same. However, they are equally important and we recommend you have both. Public liability covers you should a customer have an accident on your premises and decide to hold you responsible and take legal action. Products liability on the other hand, covers you should a customer take action against you because takeaway food you’ve sold has made them ill or injured them in some way.
As you’re likely to have equipment such as deep fat fryers and stock, we provide cover to replace your broken equipment. This will help you overcome those little set-backs and keep your business running with minimal interruption. Whether you own the equipment or not, we can ensure that should the worst happen, the equipment in your takeaway shop will be covered. Our policies can even be adapted to cover your landlords contents or improvements you’ve made which may not be covered by the landlord’s insurance policy.
Your staff are likely to be dealing with hot surfaces, hot liquids and slippery floors. We understand you do everything you can to prevent accidents in your work place however, should an accident occur and you be accused of negligence, our policy can help cover legal fees and potential resulting compensation.
Our takeaway shop policies can include delivery driver insurance and this usually comes as standard. You will however need to ensure that each of your drivers has insurance for their motor vehicle separately.
