Commercial glass is a very different proposition than the kind you might see in your own home. It will often be at the front of a store and in highly accessible places. If it is broken, it may cost thousands of pounds to repair and with many businesses operating on slim profit margins that might be money it doesn’t have.  In addition to the glass you will have on your shopfront, your window frames and contents of your display windows could be damaged in the event that glass is broken.  You also need to consider the cost of boarding up while you wait for the glass to be replaced.

Glass insurance is therefore an essential cover for any retailer. It protects your business against considerable losses and helps you repair the look of your shop as soon as possible. At Brisco Business we can help you compare policies to find the right type of glass insurance for your business.

Isn’t glass insurance covered as part of my buildings insurance?

Most buildings insurance policies will include glass cover but if you are a tenant and the building is insured by your landlord, you may want to consider insuring the glass under your own policy.  This will be essential if you have installed the shop front yourself as part of a premises fit out.

Can You Insure Windows?

Yes, you can insure windows. Windows are a common target for burglars, so it is important to insure them. Insurance will cover the cost of repairing or replacing windows that are damaged or destroyed.

What level of glass cover will I need?

It all depends on the type of business you run. If you have a shop with a large glass front, it will be essential. Not only are you opening yourself up to considerable losses if the glass is damaged, but it could ruin the look of your shop. People are much less likely to enter a shop which looks damaged or in poor condition. The resultant loss of business will not be possible to insure against. Having a good insurance policy in place, therefore, allows you to get your shop open as soon as possible.  Consider the replacement cost of your shop front and the cost of the contents in your display windows and make sure your policy provides adequate cover to replace these.

Are there any exceptions to glass insurace?

All insurance policies will have exceptions and exclusions.  Different insurers will take their own approaches to what they are willing to insure. It’s a good idea to check what types of damage you will be covered against. For example, you should make sure accidental and criminal damage is included. They may also have an upper limit beyond which they are not willing to provide cover. If you have a substantial claim, they may not cover anything beyond this limit.  When you compare policies with Brisco Insurance you will be presented with different options from different insurers and you can review the policies and choose the one which is most suitable for you.

What Does Plate-Glass Insurance Mean?

Plate-glass insurance is a type of business insurance that covers the cost of repairing or replacing glass windows and doors. This type of insurance is often used by businesses with large glass frontages, such as shops and restaurants.

Why Is Plate-Glass Excluded From Insurance?

Plate-glass is usually excluded from business insurance policies because it is not considered to be a high-risk item. This type of glass is often used in windows and storefronts, and it is not uncommon for it to be broken or damaged. However, the cost of replacing plate-glass is typically low, so most businesses can afford to self-insure for this type of risk.

If you’re worried about the risks associated with your business, it’s important to make sure that you have adequate insurance in place. You can get an idea of the cost by getting a quote from an insurance company.
