You’re already saving yourself the hassle of a daily commute and distractions in the office by working from home. Why not also save yourself the trouble of having to pay out for a new computer if the dog pulls it off the table, or compensation if a business visitor scalds themselves e.g. on a too-hot-tap that you were aware of but forgot to warn others about?
A household insurance policy can go some way to covering your business equipment but not all. It won’t cover the more high tech audiovisual items for example, or anyone visiting your home for business purposes, or employees.
If you’re self employed and running your business from home, it’s up to you to make sure you’re adequately covered. Of course, if you come to us at Shearwater, we discuss this with you.
Business equipment and personal accident are additional cover options that we always take into consideration when arranging a working from home insurance policy.
Our team can offer independent advice around the level of cover you need while working from home, before sourcing a home business insurance policy to suit. We’ll be looking into the following areas:
This cover option is only really necessary if you have people visiting your home for business purposes or you visit others e.g. suppliers. This will protect you in the event that they injure themselves at your property, or any damage you have caused whilst visiting their property, such as a laptop.
If your home acts as a base for a production line and you are facing a claim due to a faulty product, product liability is a useful addition to your working from home insurance policy.
When the wheels fell off my lorry the Shearwater team were incredible. They called to check up on me, they arranged recovery and when the lorry was deemed a write off I was even given the option of keeping the scrap or not.
Shearwater not only provided a much more comprehensive policy but at an incredibly competitive price. Everything was very simple.
We've insured with Shearwater for a number of years and have always been very impressed with the customer service, claims handling, and competitive pricing. I've now moved all of our business and personal polices to Shearwater
