  • FAQs

    Frequently Asked Questions for Hair & Beauty Insurance.

    • Does this policy extend to cover the business if someone rents a chair or room?

      The public liability section of a policy automatically covers employees of your business. If you rent a chair or room to a third party, they are classed as a sub-contractor. Sub-contractors need to hold their own liability insurance and provide a Certificate of Currency to you to confirm they have cover.

    • Can I pay my premiums by the month?

      Yes. All insurance offered by Citycover can be paid by the month through premium funders. If you chose to use the premium funder’s service, your monthly instalments will be tax deductible.

    • Is my equipment covered away from my premises?

      Your equipment is only covered away from your main place of business if you insure it under the General Property section.

    • What is “Underinsurance”?

      Also known as the “Average” or Co-Insurance” Clause, Underinsurance is the result of nominating a value for an asset which is too low to actually replace it in the event it is lost or damaged.

      Certain cover sections (Fire, Business Interruption – Income, and Electronic Equipment) contain the under-insurance clause. It is important to review the level of cover you have declared, as if the amount you have declared is too low, the insurer can apply a formula which limits their settlement to you for that loss. This can occur if you have declared less than 80% of the actual value of the risk/asset.

      Many businesses unknowingly under-insure as they apply heavy depreciation to their assets or simply forget to include certain assets into their calculations.
