Direct Line launches new business insurance range

17 March 2008 / by Rachael Stiles
Direct Line has launched a new range of business insurance products to provide comprehensive, competitive protection for small businesses.

Small businesses can be ruined by just one unfortunate event, such as a fire, theft, or a public liability claim, so people protect themselves and their livelihood with business insurance.

Business owners and landlords can now choose from Direct Line Commercial Insurance, which covers against buildings and equipment, loss of rent, and public liability; Direct Line Shop Insurance provides such cover as perishable goods and goods in transit protection, loss of money, and personal accident.

Direct Line Residential Insurance protects landlords against loss of rent, contents, and property owner's liability, and Direct Line Tradesmen Insurance offers professional tradesmen and craftsmen with complete protection against loss of earnings, including cover for their tools and equipment, and employer's and public liability.

All of the policies include access to 24 hour helplines for situations which can cause security breaches and requiring locksmiths and glass replacement, in addition to free advice on tax, employment law, legal issues, contracts, stress counselling, and medical and health emergencies.

There are also a range of optional extras available, such as additional personal accident cover or higher public liability protection, so that business owners can mould the policy their own individual needs.
