Cover on the move
Many businesses today work remotely while travelling or need to attend business meetings across the world. If this is you, our mobile protection (included as standard) will cover your portable equipment – wherever you are.

What is contents and equipment insurance?
Contents and equipment insurance covers the integral parts of your business, such as your laptop, phone, and documents, etc. Whether you work in an office, co-working space or remotely – our policy covers the costs of damaged or stolen equipment. We are one of the very few insurers to cover your belongings in a co-working space – all you need to do is keep them locked up while unattended.
Who is office contents insurance for?
Whether you’re a one-person business, small business or an established operation, all businesses benefit from office contents insurance/contents and equipment insurance. Our advanced protection covers the costs so that your business can get back to work without losing days of time and money.
Things you can do to keep your contents and equipment safe
For businesses based in a co-working or shared space, your business contents policy is only valid if your belongings are securely locked while unattended. Use a Kensington Lock to protect laptops and monitors when you’re not around. For other items, make sure you use a locker, or a lockable desk drawer.
What to watch out for in an office and equipment policy?
When purchasing your business equipment insurance policy, be aware that cover limits should be based on the replacement value of your contents, rather than the market value. Also, don’t forget to include any leased items in your totals. If your business rents an office, check with your landlord before buying business contents cover, as you may find that you’re partially covered through their business insurance.

Contents and equipment insurance FAQs
It might seem obvious, but it all depends on how much equipment and other contents you’ve got to insure. You need to work out, in the worst case scenario, how much would it cost to replace everything in your office? That includes any cash.
Similarly, for portable equipment insurance, you need to define how much it would cost to replace the portable equipment you usually take out and about with you. For this element, it’s also important to define the territory within which you want to be covered (be that the UK only, Europe or worldwide), as this will also affect the cost of your cover.
Our online office contents and personal equipment policy has a standard excess of £100 per claim. All other expenses and costs will be covered on our side. Please be aware, however, that for offline advised clients who have tailor-made policies, the excesses do vary depending on the risk.
Insurance is your last line of defence, but it’s obviously preferable if your belongings stay safe and sound in the first place. This is where taking the right preventative measures come in. Make sure you keep your office locked whenever there’s nobody around or, if you’re hot-desking, don’t leave anything valuable unattended - that’s what lockers are for.
Protecting your portable belongings can be trickier, but ensure you lock your device with a password to secure your data, activate ‘find my phone’ functionality, and if you do get caught out, inform the police as soon as you can.
