What type of cover might I require on a sign manufacturers insurance policy?
As a business owner there will be essentials that you feel you must have covered. Your business relies on manufacturing signs of varying types, you will use machines such as wide format printers and perhaps CNC machinery.
CAD is an essential part of your business, you provide designs for your customers and in many cases control your production machinery from these same pieces of hardware, these are essential items and losing them due to fire or storm damage for instance can prove catastrophic.
When you manufacture you will need all your component parts such as vinyl’s, plastics and in some cases metals, these need to be readily to hand to put the signs together or to print. Cover for the stock you carry in your business is therefore essential.
Public liability Insurance isn’t just for businesses that work on site, just because you work mainly from your premises then you are still exposed to various risks. You may still have someone other than employees at your premises, this might be a member of the public or supplier representative, many things can go wrong at your premises… take a fire for instance, if you cause damage or interrupt a neighbouring business, they will be looking to you to reimburse them for their loss.
Product Liability Insurance is usually attached to Public Liability and works in a very similar way, if you cause injury or loss to someone because your product is faulty, this cover will not only defend you but pay any compensation required.
Its very important that sign manufacturers obtain the right level of business insurance to protect them against the risks in the modern production environment.
