Ready to get started? Let’s begin with the pressing question…

Why do you need wholesalers’ insurance?

There are many moving parts in a wholesale operation, and your products are only one side of the equation. Equipment, property, retail partners and safety are other key components that need your close attention.

Wholesale rests on relationships.

Even though you’re in charge of your product, you probably count on a number of other people at various points in the production and retail chain. You need to be prepared if someone else’s misstep falls squarely on your shoulders, and impacts your bottom line.

Risks vary, and consequences can be extensive.

Depending on your particular industry, you could face everything from product damage to equipment breakdown in your daily operations. When major equipment is involved, these events can jeopardize safety, revenue and your reputation – and without a good safety net, it can take a long time to recover.

Specialized work calls for specialized coverage.

Wholesale involves a range of distinct risks, relationships, and logistical challenges. When things go wrong in one area, the entire process can suffer, and the scope of your operations can push your loss beyond the reach of a general business insurance policy. Specific coverage is smarter coverage.

What can we do for you?

We’re here to protect you through the entire process—from raw goods to delivery and sale.

We know that a food and beverage wholesaler faces a different set of risks than a building and garden material wholesaler. That’s why we’ve crafted a range of solutions to address the particular challenges you may meet in your day-to-day work.
