All about inventory and property insurance

As a business owner, are you already familiar with inventory and property insurance? Also known as inventory insurance, goods insurance or business contents insurance.

Inventory and property insurance is insurance that allows you to insure your company's inventory and goods. Important because these are an essential part of your business.

At Alpina.nl you can purchase low-cost property and inventory insurance.

What is inventory and goods insurance?

Inventory and goods insurance is insurance for your business inventory and goods. An insurer distinguishes between the inventory and goods of a business. If you have your own business or company, you probably have a lot of inventory. This includes things like desks, computers and office supplies, but also special machines and perhaps stock. Goods means your trading stock. These are all the raw and auxiliary materials that you use to make your final product, such as semi-finished products, cleaning agents, fuels and packaging materials. They are all products that you sell or consume in the making of the final product. These items are essential to your business, so it makes sense that you don't want anything to happen to them. With an inventory and goods insurance, both your inventory and your goods are insured against damage as a result of fire, storm and burglary, among other things.

Why take out inventory and goods insurance?

Of course, a lot of money has been invested in your own business. It is only logical that you would like to save money where possible. However, precisely because there is so much money in your own business, it is wise to take out inventory and property insurance. Imagine a fire breaking out in the business premises, destroying a large part of your inventory and goods. Or what if there is a break-in and laptops and devices are stolen or destroyed.

Without inventory insurance, replacing these items will cost you a lot of money. Moreover, your company's activities may come to a halt, causing you to lose income as well. This is a big risk, especially for start-ups, as they often do not have a large financial buffer to cover such costs. By taking out inventory and goods insurance, you ensure that you are insured against many of these damages.
