No two businesses are the same, so why should your insurance be?

Whether your business is based at home, online, or on the high street, if you’ve got stock or business contents, we’ve got it covered with our contents insurance for businesses. We provide cover for a wide range of businesses, from beauty salons and hairdressers, to coffee shops, offices, and surgeries. Better still, we give you the freedom to tailor your contents cover to meet your needs. That means you get the cover that’s right for your business – not someone else’s.

Simply choose the covers you want – and leave the ones you don’t. It’s the protection you’d expect from AXA – for less.
