Why do I need stock insurance?

Insuring your stock can cover the cost of replacement should it be damaged or stolen. A difficulty can arise as stock figures for some businesses may fluctuate significantly, but this can be overcome by building in seasonal fluctuations to your policy to avoid either under- or over insurance.

Cover can also be adapted to look after stock that is perishable or reliant on temperature control, protecting your business from risks such as transportation delays or the failure of refrigeration or freezer equipment.

The most common way to insure stock is as part of a commercial combined or commercial package policy. If you want to insure your stock whilst it moves between locations, is carried by road, rail or air or is in temporary storage, then you may want to consider goods in transit or marine cargo insurance.
