Retail Insurance


Shops come in all shapes and sizes, which is why an online retail insurance policy may not suit all businesses. You run the risk of paying for cover that you don’t actually need or more importantly, forget to include cover which, in the unfortunate event of a retail insurance claim, you find you are not covered.

Here at Alan & Thomas, we have a specialist retail division staffed by expert advisers who provide a complete range of retail insurance products for shops and outlets of all sizes, from small corner shops to large multi site retailers. As well as talking you through the retail insurance cover you need at the renewal, they are on hand throughout the life of your policy to offer advice and make any changes as needed.

We work closely with a number of the UK's leading insurers and as an independent broker - not tied to any one insurance company - we can offer you extremely competitive premiums.

As a one-size-fits-all retail insurance policy may not give you the right cover, we specialise in tailoring insurance schemes for particular retail sectors, for example, Book Shops, Charity Shops, Clothes Shops, Cycle Shops, Florists, Gift Shops, Off Licences and Pet Shops.

Our team of experienced retail insurance advisers combine expert industry knowledge with the very highest levels of customer service, which means you can trust us to provide you with the right insurance cover for your business at competitive prices. We provide a free no obligation review and quote to see if we can better your current deal.


Benefits of our retail insurance include:

  • Bespoke levels of Buildings and Contents cover
  • Underwritten by carefully selected panel of the UK's leading insurers
  • Dedicated retail insurance specialist to guide you through the process
  • Stock in trade including seasonal stock increase
  • Business Interruption - covers loss of profits arising from events such as fire or flood
  • Public Liability - £2m as standard with the option of £5m
  • Employers' Liability – cover up to £10m as standard
  • Money cover - up to £5,000
  • All Risks on specified equipment - cover for specified items for loss or damage away from your business premises
  • Legal Expenses - covers solicitors' fees and expenses, cost of barristers and witnesses, court costs and opponents' costs if awarded against you
  • Payment of premium by monthly instalment available (subject to status)
  • Free access to online risk management services
