Unoccupied Warehouse & Industrial Unit Insurance


Click 'GET A QUOTE' to submit your insurance details through QuoteRack

An empty warehouse, often located on an industrial estate that is largely left deserted at night time, does not represent an attractive risk for an insurance company looking to offer insurance quotes for a vacant warehouse, storage or other industrial premises. As well as needing cover for the usual insurance ‘perils’ of fire, flood and public liability, the issue of maintaining a reasonable level of security is also a major consideration. Malicious damage, vandalism and break-ins are all very real problems that as the warehouse owner, you will be required to address when asking an insurer to consider offering cover for your vacant warehouse.

All is not lost however and there are insurers who are willing to provide cover for your unoccupied warehouse. It is likely that a number of conditions will need to be agreed to when an insurer offers a quote, such as routine visits to the warehouse to ensure that all is well and there is no evidence of damage or break-ins. You might be required to make sure that water and gas supplies are cut off, to reduce the risk of burst pipes or gas leaks while the warehouse is unattended.

How Expensive is Insuring an Empty Warehouse?

The size of the warehouse, its location and security measures in place are all considerations for an insurer prepared to offer quotes for unoccupied warehouse insurance cover. This is a ‘non-standard risk’ as far as insurers are concerned. Under normal, daily use, a warehouse might be filled with valuable goods, or other stored items. Comparing the cost of insuring the same warehouse or industrial unit when it is left empty might be surprising if you were expecting a significantly cheaper premium.
