What does print shop insurance offer?
Running a printing business is extremely demanding and often requires you to work unsociable hours to complete projects on time. This unique trade requires high levels of skill and a strong work ethic, and that’s certainly worth protecting. Having the right printers insurance for your print shop is a vital safety net should things go wrong. Running a printing business can offer variety and plenty of challenge, but it’s important you take the time to recognise the risks involved.
An alternative to printers insurance
At The Retail Mutual, we specialise in working with independent retailers to safeguard their business and its assets. When taking out business cover, it is important to consider that every company is different. That’s why The Retail Mutual offers an alternative to printers’ insurance with the flexibility to tailor your plan to your printing business. We aim to build long-term relationships with our Members and really understand their business needs so that we can provide the ideal cover to match.
To plan your cover needs it is important to understand the risks your business faces on a daily basis. Should your equipment be damaged or stolen, the financial consequences could be huge. Having suitable printers insurance or print shop cover not only protects your business but provides you with much-needed peace of mind.
Allowing customers onto your premises is a wonderful opportunity for them to see your business at work. However, this can also be dangerous. If a visitor suffers an injury due to your printing equipment or slips on the floor, this can lead to them bringing a claim that could cost your business if you’re found to be negligent. That’s where The Retail Mutual can help by creating the perfect cover to suit your needs. Our printing business cover, similar to printers insurance, enables you to operate worry-free.
What shop cover do you need?
