However, the better we understand your business the better we can tailor your policy and our advice, we may end up asking you more than you’ve been asked before, but its all because we have a determination to deliver the most suitable solution for you. We’d love to spend an hour getting under the skin of your shop and helping improve your cover confidence, this is why we have built our CoverFit service.

Bike Shop Insurance is trade specific, designed to perform where generic business insurance falters.
Not all insurance products are built equal.
Many bike shops are insured on restrictive off-the-shelf retail products simply because their broker doesn’t have access to anything more suitable. With clever marketing, you can not even be aware that you are insured on a standard retail product until you delve a little deeper.
These standard retail products are designed to cater for as wide a cross-section of the traditional high street as possible, the quirks of a bike shop will stretch these products beyond design.
Don’t settle for a fixed-gear solution, speak to the experts to get Bike Shop specific support.How standard retail products could be stretched beyond design

Life-changing injuries can result in eye-watering losses.
In an increasingly litigious society there will always be a risk to your business should your negligent actions or inaction be alleged to have caused injury or financial harm.
The cause of such an injury may appear innocuous but the effects can be life-changing and expenses can pile up rapidly. The injured party may require specialist and costly care for the remainder of their life, or their injuries may mean they need to call time on a prestigious career, foregoing substantial future earnings.
From small incidents significant claims do occur, no business big or small is immune from the potential fallout. This is the key reason why we’ll recommend you opt for the highest liability limit you can reasonably afford, why limits of £5m and £10m are increasingly becoming the norm even for small businesses.Get a quote
The best cover can sometimes cost a little extra – but not always.
We’ve put in the hard graft to ensure that we can be confident in delivering a competitive premium, however we are here to provide the most suitable cover solution which will not necessarily always be the cheapest.
Our core priority will be to help you get the very best from your budget and we’ll never be afraid to tell you if we believe you need to invest a little bit more to better protect you and your business.
Its always good to have in mind what your maximum spend is for your shop’s insurance, that way we can work backwards to recommend the most comprehensive solution that can be afforded within your budget – we can provide a view of what reductions can achieve savings and put you in firmly in the driving seat for a cover versus spend review.Get a quote
