Imagine an insurance plan just for wholesale and distribution businesses.

No doubt you have insurance coverage for your wholesale or distribution business.

But does your insurance take into account the crucial role your business plays in the supply chain? Or does it just assume your business is like any other?

Markel Specialty realizes the important part you play in getting products from manufacturers to the stores. That’s why we have business insurance for wholesale and distribution businesses such as:

  • Appliance distributors
  • Bakery distributors
  • Hardware distributors
  • Floral distributors
  • Floor covering distributors
  • Barber or beauty shop supplies distributors

Our workers compensation insurance combined with our businessowners policy, or BOP, can provide you with customization for your business—covering commercial general liability, commercial property, and other areas essential to helping you protect your assets. This combination can also earn you a 10% multi-policy discount.* Also, by adding Markel Specialty’s commercial umbrella liability insurance policy over eligible EssentialBOP policies can provide qualified customers additional insurance protection for the costs of catastrophic claims and lawsuits.


*The discount applies to businessowners policy only.  Multi-policy discount not applicable to Equipment Breakdown Protection and Employee Practices Liability Insurance endorsements.
Insurance and coverage are subject to availability and qualifications and may not be available in all 50 states. Coverage may not be available for all business types. Contact a Markel Specialty agent for more information. Insurance is underwritten by Markel Insurance Company, Glen Allen, VA. Your policy is the contract that specifically and fully describes your coverage, terms, and conditions.

People depend on your distribution services.  You can depend on us for your insurance needs.

As a wholesaler or distributor, you are a vital component in the smooth delivery of key products. When you have a problem, everyone has a problem.

Markel Specialty insurance is one of the risk management tools every wholesale or distribution business needs.

Combine a Markel Specialty businessowners policy with our workers compensation insurance and employment practices liability coverage and you have one of the risk management tools every wholesale or distribution business needs..
