What is stock insurance?

Stock insurance is crucial for many types of traders and stallholders who handle goods. This can include those working at street markets, outdoor events, exhibitions, shows and festivals.

If your stock or equipment is damaged from an accident, fire, flood or theft, your stock insurance will cover the cost to replace it. For example, if you sell pizza at a market and your collection of ingredients is damaged by an accident, you will be covered by your policy.

If your business relies on selling stock, it’s easy to see why having stock insurance could prove essential — as you’ll be able to get back to work without suffering significant financial loss, and without suffering excessive disruption to your schedule.
