Protecting your business against theft

We all know burglaries can be costly if your business premises are not properly insured. And in all cases, regardless of where you are located, burglary prevention must start with the business owner. Short-term insurers recommend a combination to measures to protect your business including suitable locks, burglar bars, security gates, an appropriate alarm system as well as adequate indoor and outside lighting.

Santam will cover your business contents against loss of damage after forcible and violent entry or exit into your building under our Theft section. This section includes cover in the event of an armed robbery. Santam also offers cover for damage to your business' buildings as well as damage to your fixtures and fittings. 

You can also claim for damaged or lost locks or keys. The theft of your office contents is covered under the Office Contents section of your Santam policy.
