Factory and Warehouse Insurance

Any business involved in manufacturing or industrial processing needs to have one thing at the top of the agenda – factory insurance. Factories can be incredibly expensive to run and they also come with numerous risks, financial and otherwise, so if you don’t want to put your livelihood in jeopardy then investing in adequate insurance is essential.

This type of commercial insurance has been specifically designed to meet the demands of factory and warehouse owners across the country. You only need to think of the costs involved to realise that such insurance is a vital consideration – not only do you need to protect your buildings, assets and machinery from potential hazards but you need to protect your employees any visitors to the site as well, because if anything were to go wrong the costs could quickly add up.

You can always consider things like buildings and contents insurance as well as material or accidental damage cover, thereby protecting your assets, stock and machinery in the event of fire, theft, flood or any other risks that are inherent in the industry. Business interruption cover could also be included in any policy as there could well be times when machinery fails and therefore halts production, and you’ll also need to think about goods in transit cover, loss of income protection, personal accident cover as well as cover if any money were to be lost or stolen.

But, it doesn’t stop there – as well as considering your direct financial responsibilities you also need to think about the protection of your employees, clients and other third parties. If anyone were to be injured whilst at work or if third party property damage occurred as a result of your working practices then the claims made against you could be incredibly difficult to recover from, making things like employers and public liability cover important considerations.

These are all basic considerations and will often come as standard in any insurance policy, but there are plenty of other optional extras you might like to include as well. It’s important to discuss your requirements with specialist brokers if you want to be confident in your level of protection and always compare the options to make sure you’re getting the best deal. The right policy can ensure your financial interests and help ensure that you are protected in most cases, so you minimise the risk of financial loss – make sure to invest in adequate insurance and you can run your factory with total peace of mind.
