Working from home

If you run a business out of your spare bedroom or from the kitchen table, insurance might not be something you have considered, but depending on your business, you might have important equipment that is unlikely to be covered by a standard home insurance policy.

If public liability insurance is not something you've considered for your bootstrapped business, our team of insurance experts will be able to advise you on what might be appropriate for your situation.

How to buy home office insurance from YOUR Insurance

  • Think about the following:
    Is your home office covered by your home insurance?
    How often do you interact with members of the public in your home office?
    How would your business be affected if something happened to your home?
  • Phone us on 0800 107 4885 and let our team of experts advise you on the right policy.
  • Ask lots of questions about the levels of cover you need. We are happy help you understand the levels of cover you have in place for each eventuality and if a policy is even appropriate for your small home-based business.
