Insurance for Dry Cleaners & Laundries
Keep your dry cleaner or laundry business protected with specialized insurance coverage

Dry Cleaners & Laundries Insurance

Dry cleaners, shirt and flatwork laundries, and coin-operated laundries have insurance needs that go far beyond just their equipment. The most critical and regularly inadequately insured exposure is the clothing and other customer goods exposures.  
 

In our experience, many dry cleaners or laundries are one disaster away from going out of business, due to inadequate insurance coverage. Fabricare business owners think they are saving money by going with a “cheaper” insurance policy.  But that policy can’t bring the business back into business after a total loss.
 

Is this true for you and your fabricare business?
 

As the largest insurer of dry cleaners and laundries in the western U.S., we understand the various kinds of dry cleaner and laundry businesses and their differing insurance and risk managed issues and needs.  And the needs vary depending on the primary activity of the business.

Dry Cleaner Business Insurance Issues

Dry cleaners that perform cleaning and laundry on the premises may have customer garment loss and customer garment damage issues, equipment valuation issues, mechanical breakdown issues, toxic chemical challenges, employee safety issues, all of which we understand and can properly cover. And for retail dry cleaning agencies, they need to think about possible issues like unusual tenant improvements, accessibility or security issues due to their location.

 

Commercial Laundry Business Insurance Issues

A commercial laundry business faces issues such as: equipment valuation, safety issues due to the automated processing inherent in the operation, repetitive motion issues due to the high segregation of labor, vehicle challenges due to use of routes or delivery, potential car accidents, and the loss or damage of customer goods.

 

Coin Laundry or Coin Vended Laundry Business Issues

Coin and vended laundry business have potential liability issues like: burglary exposures, public safety risk due to customers having access to equipment, and other safety issues that could result when attendants may or may not be present.
