Why should I consider barber insurance?

As with any small business, there is always the potential risk of accidents. And in the event an accident does occur, it’s worth considering having financial protection.

If you employ other people as part of your business, it’s also a legal requirement that you have Employers’ Liability cover to protect them against any potential personal injury claims.

Barber insurance FAQs

How much does barber insurance cost?

There are many factors that can affect the cost of your barber insurance. These can range from the amount of experience you have to where your business is based.

One of the main factors is the level of cover you choose. This is why here at Ripe, we give you as much control as possible over your insurance policy so then you’re not paying for cover you don’t need.

What insurance should I consider as a barber?

Public Liability is the main cover for barbers. This protects you from potential claims from a third party, for example personal injury, property damage, or treatment risk.

There is also additional forms of cover which include:

• Employers' Liability: if you employ people as part of your business, this is normally a legal requirement. It covers legal liability for bodily injury

• Equipment Cover: this covers damage or theft of equipment you use as part of your business

• Money Cover: this provides cover if any money you have on your business premises or in transit is stolen

• Buildings Cover: additional cover to protect the barber shop you own or you’re responsible for
