If you have any employees, that are not your immediate family members, you are legally required to hold adequate Employers Liability insurance. Check out the gov.uk website to find out more, or contact our expert commercial insurance team who can make sure you have the correct coverage.
Products liability insurance provides legal indemnity against incidents of third-party injury, illness, property damage or accidental death as a result of any goods you have supplied. Products we can cover you for include tobacco products, flavoured e-liquids, electronic vape devices and more.
The right level of products cover is vital for vape industry professionals where multiple claims can occur from claimants seeking compensation for illness or injury. At Insync, our Products policies come in combination with your Public Liability policy to ensure you have a complete liability cover solution.
While vaping is becoming a widely accepted alternative to smoking, the safety and long-term health implications of vaping are currently unknown, making business insurance tricky to secure in the vaping industry. While many insurers may shy away from this growing market, our experienced team at Insync can arrange specialist insurance from a panel of leading insurers.
With an Insync vape shop insurance policy, you can find peace of mind that your business will be covered for potential claims far in the future for legal expenses and compensation payments up to your limit of indemnity.
Our vape e-cigarette insurance packages start from as little as £250 (plus insurance premium tax), each policy is individually tailored to your specific business requirements. Typically, insurance premiums will be impacted by:
Alongside product liability, you should also purchase cover against injury or damage to third-party property in the form of public liability insurance, protecting against incidents such as slips, trips or falls to customers, delivery drivers or other visitors to your premises.
If you have any employees, regardless of whether they are full or part-time, you are required by law to purchase employers liability insurance. Employers liability provides cover for legal costs and compensation payments following claims by an employee for injury or illness sustained as a result of their employment with your firm.
Alongside your liability insurance cover, you can also arrange cover for buildings, contents, stock and machinery. Protecting your inventory or stock in transit is another key risk for any wholesaler. Loss or damage to items that are being imported or exported to or from suppliers is likely to have a significant impact on your business. You should take time to understand where you are responsible for goods throughout the supply chain and we will ensure that appropriate insurance protection is arranged.
Whilst any e-cig manufacturer has a legal responsibility for any goods supplied to third parties, where you are dealing with non-EU suppliers there is no certainty that they could be traced in the event of a claim. Even if the supply chain is based in the EU, do you have 100% certainty that the manufacturer has the correct cover in place? Whenever injury or damage occurs, law firms will still involve all relevant parties in their proceedings – if you are in the supply chain, you should purchase the correct protection. In the vape industry this is particularly important as you cannot rely on your suppliers or end retailers from remaining in business, or retaining the correct cover
A vape wholesaler supplies goods imported from China to a chain of high street vape stores.
An e-cigarette explodes causing the user to lose sight in one eye, and they are seeking damages and associated legal costs.
The claimant's lawyer issues proceedings against both the vape shop and the wholesaler concerned. As both the shop owner and wholesaler had adequate insurance, their policies respond and cover both the legal costs and compensation payments should the claimant be successful.
