Pop up shops are a great way to start or boost a business and over the last ten years have gone from being relatively uncommon to being part of everyday retail life, used by a wide range of industries.
When you decide to open a pop up and have found your ideal location, agreed terms on a short term lease and signed the contract, the next step is to fit out your property and stock it. Whatever kind of store you intend to open you will need a retail insurance policy that covers your stock and contents. A good insurance policy will protect you against damage to contents and stock, loss of profit, insuring your money, employer’s liability, public and products liability and legal protection cover.
Most insurance policies will not cover you for less than 12 months. That can prove to be very costly if you are only opening your pop up for a few days, weeks or months.
Damage to stock; having to close for a period of time for repairs; a customer slipping over in your shop; even a car crashing through your shop front! – anything that impacts on your business can be a costly experience and it’s essential to have the right cover in place to make sure your business is protected. Suitable insurance cover is also a requirement of most pop up leases.
