Shisha Bar Insurance - Help Is At Hand

Shisha Bar Insurance

As a shisha bar owner there are a number of risks you face. We have produced this page to highlight the most common exposures, provide advice to help mitigate your risks, and information on what insurance you should have in place. The right insurance should ensure that you are financially protected should the worst happen.

Employers’ liability exposure. Often claims arise from employees lifting and moving items incorrectly. This can cause back injury, hernia, sprain, and strain. We are seeing a rise in these types of injuries which often result in compensation claims against the employer.

Employers Liability is a legal requirement so your policy should respond. There are actions you can take to reduce the chance of a claim arising. We recommend speaking to a good H&S advisor who will assist.

Shisha Lounge Insurance

Your public liability exposure. This is always a concern in a retail environment where the public visit. To reduce incidents we suggest that all stock should be on shelves, or locked cabinets. Floor coverings should be in good condition, with no frayed or worn spots on carpet. No cracks or holes in flooring. Sufficient exits must be provided and be well marked.

Car parks and pavements need to be in good repair with snow and ice removed. They should be generally level and free of exposure to slip and fall. If your business is open after dark, adequate lighting and appropriate security for the area must be present.

We strongly recommend that any business that deals with the public has Public Liability insurance. This comes as standard on most shisha bar insurance packages and is vital insurance coverage that you should have.

For more info contact Edison Ives.

Other Shisha Bar Exposures

Property exposure. If an incident such as a fire occurs, substantial fire and water damage may result in your stock and contents being completely destroyed. Again a good shisha bar  insurance package will cover your contents, stock and fixtures and fittings. Please make sure that you update your sums insured at least annually to ensure you are fully protected.

Crime exposure. Theft is a major concern in your sector due to the high value of the shisha equipment. It can occur from employee dishonesty or from a robbery.

Employee dishonesty is on the rise. Unfortunately many owners only find out about employee theft when it is too late. The risk can be controlled through inventory monitoring, close control of the till, and disciplined controls. Theft prevention requires careful control of money kept on site and regular bank deposits. Appropriate theft controls such as alarms, locked cabinets, roller shutters lighting, and access to the premises are recommended.

Product liability. This is a specialist cover for your sector and very difficult to obtain. You will require this cover if you produce your own items or re-label items.

Angela Marafelia
Incredible

I spent months trying to find bespoke insurance cover for my small food business but kept getting really bad service, no information and refusal with no explanation. I’d almost lost hope but then I got through to Tony from Edison Ives and he was incredible. Not only did he spend the time to explain things thoroughly, he went out of his way to help me find the right insurance policy for my business. I’m a super happy customer and would Highly recommend! Thank you so so much.

Evey T
Absolute top man

I was let down by another insurance broker at 5 o'clock on a Monday night with a project mobilizing on the Wednesday morning for which I had to have Rope access insurance for at £10M ELI/PLI.

Tony called me back after hours on the Monday night, got all of the information required (walked me through the document) and then put in a monumental effort to get the quotations back before my mobilization time. As a comparison I had other insurance brokers only responding to my enquiry 24hrs later.

Tony got everything in place in time for us to go offshore and successfully deliver our project. Absolute top man and I will be back to speak to Tony for our next insurance coverage (with a bit more time to spare).

Emma Brewster Business Owner
Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value
The leaseholders in my building recently took on the challenge of becoming freeholders and with the completion date looming, we needed to secure new building insurance. I ventured onto a comparison site and had a million calls from brokers offering their services and quotes etc. Of all, Tony from Edison Ives, was the most diligent, professional and responsive. Tony is very personable and made sure I had absolutely everything I needed (I ask A LOT of questions!) to make an informed decision along with a paper trail for reference and transparency. Based on my experience with Tony, I would definitely recommend Edison Ives and their services.
