MORE TH>N is offering 50 per cent extra cover on shop insurance over the Christmas period to protect owners from theft.
A survey by MORE TH>N found that shop theft increases by ten per cent over the festive season, and the insurance provider has decided to adjust its cover accordingly.
Rachel Cotton from MORE TH>N Business said: "Alongside taking a few additional sensible security precautions, we like to think the increased level of cover provided by MORE TH>N Business gives the small business owner extra confidence at a time of year that should potentially be their most profitable, not their most anxious."
MORE TH>N has also issued some top tips to help shop owners keep their property more secure during the festivities.
The insurance provider recommends owners install timer lights to trick thieves into thinking the property is occupied and use a safe to store money left on the premises.
MORE TH>N also says it is wise to check all bolts lock properly and says shop owners should paint over graffiti since rundown buildings often attract thieves as they look like they have poorer security.To read more about Business Insurance, click here.
