A laser cutting business will need a wide range of insurance covers; it’s usually bought as a single insurance policy which covers the premises if you own it as well as the plant and machinery such as the lasers themselves as well as specialist equipment that is located in the open.
Stock cover is essential and in the event of a loss at the premises Business Interruption Insurance is there to keep you in business by paying overheads whilst the premises are repaired.
Your business needs can differ from many businesses, even businesses that do exactly the same type of business as yours. Your stock may be high value and in some cases you may have those specialist steels that are supplied by your customer so it’s essential that these are correctly covered.
Liability Insurance is a essential cover, usually comprising of Public Liability and Product liability and where you employ people, Employers Liability is a legal requirement.
