Universal Insurance offers a Professional Liability policy which provides coverage for accidents or negligent acts that arise from ultraviolet exposure and other ancillary services. The multiple exposures unique to the tanning industry can make finding proper insurance coverage one of the most challenging tasks of owning a tanning salon. Our experts will walk you through these exposures to help you obtain proper coverage.


As a responsible salon owner you know securing the right insurance can help reduce risks and guard your assets. When you work with Universal Insurance, they will evaluate your exposures and help protect your business in the event of a loss.



At Universal Insurance, we are known for our exceptional customer service. We do what it takes to ensure your satisfaction and peace of mind. Universal Insurance participates in trade shows, holds seminars, and provides current risk management tips to assist our industry. We participate in various opportunities to help educate salon owners with techniques and tools that could help minimize claims and reduce insurance premiums.

  • “For over 20 years Universal Insurance has provided our customers with professionalism and a level of genuine customer service that is unmatched in any industry. The staff has extensive, hands-on knowledge of the tanning industry and works with us to create products to meet our needs.”
  • “Before switching to Universal Insurance, we were working with a local insurance agency that was unfamiliar with our industry. This caused us to spend a lot of time explaining our equipment, procedures, and services to them, which created more paperwork and higher rates. Moving to Universal was such a valuable decision and so easy to do – they know the equipment, understand the business, and could identify what we need to get the best coverage with just a few questions. With Universal, we got an insurance policy that was tailored to our business, and at a lower rate. As we begin to expand our brand and develop franchises, we know Universal will be there.”
  • “Universal Insurance was built on a code of ethics that include honesty, integrity and friendliness. We pride ourselves on treating everybody with open communication and respect. For over twenty years, our experienced team of specialized insurance professionals create an ease of mind for our clients all across the country. Universal Insurance is a solution based organization that solves problems in order to protect your business.””

Usually a separate policy written through the US Government’s Flood Plan, this coverage is for any type of rising water claim that is not a result of damage first caused to allow the water in (ie roof damage). The peril of flood is normally excluded from standard Property Insurance.
Umbrella policies provide limits over underlying policies in order to increase the amount of coverage available.

They usually follow the coverages and forms of the underlying policies and do not kick in until the underlying limits have been exhausted.
