Industrial & Commercial Property Insurance
Keeping your business protected
Whether it's a warehouse, lab, office, shop or restaurant, damage to a property and its contents can be crippling for any business. It can lead to loss of custom, disruption of service, damaged reputation, and depleted stock levels – and that’s before you pay for the repairs.
Property insurance covers destruction or damage to the insured property. And the policy can be tailored to your business needs, meaning that your business is protected in the event of disaster.
By investing a little time upfront to truly understand your business, Howden can get you quality cover to protect you when you need it most.
