What is Wholesaler & Distributor Insurance and is this something you need? Your wholesale and distributors business does not need the pricing or the cumbersome insurance boiler plate of a Commercial Insurance Package policy. A Business Owner’s insurance policy referred to as a BOP will work just fine for your business insurance needs. Aside from the low cost involved when purchasing a BOP insurance policy the insurance coverage afforded by this Business Owner’s insurance policy is very comprehensive.
The wholesaler & distributor insurance policy premium is driven by the property values you insure. The BOP policy does not contain a co-insurance clause. The BOP may not be subject to an audit at the end of the policy term. The BOP insurance policy continuously renews until you request that it is cancelled or if you stop paying premiums.
The wholesaler and distributors insurance policy can insure your real and/or personal property at your warehouse and comes with enhancements automatically included.
