Do I need insurance for my barber shop?

As a barber, you keep your clients looking sharp and stylish.

Trimming beards, slicking down side-parts or shaving short-back-and-sides, you’ve got an eye for dapper detail. But you don’t want to get into a close shave by failing to invest in business insurance.

Whether you clip in client’s home, rent a chair or have your own shop, you’ll need to stay protected.

What if a client comes in for a dye and suffers an allergic reaction because you’ve failed to conduct a patch test? Or a shave goes wrong, and you end up cutting a customer?

Business insurance can help you handle the legal and compensation costs of settling a claim – meaning you don’t have to pay hefty fees out of your own pocket.

We’ll let you build the insurance that fits your business – meaning you only pay for the bits that you need. 

Does barbers’ insurance cover freelance and mobile barbers?

Yes, it does. We’ve got a whole range of options. Public liability insurance will protect you in case you injure a customer or damage their property. Even if you don’t have a shop, you’ll have things to be protected.

Our business equipment cover will help keep the tools of your trade protected, and if you use a van to get around, then we can cover that too. If you use a car to travel from job to job, our commercial motor cover could come in handy.
