Several factors contribute to the cost of business insurance for wholesalers, such as your business size and industry risk. Cost estimates are sourced from policies purchased by Insureon customers.
Wholesalers pay a median premium of $45 per month, or $542 per year, for general liability insurance. This policy provides financial protection for third-party bodily injuries and property damage, along with advertising injuries.
Insureon’s licensed agents typically recommend a business owner’s policy (BOP) over a standalone general liability policy. A BOP combines general liability insurance with commercial property insurance to protect your warehouse or other business property, and costs less than purchasing each policy separately.
Among wholesalers that purchase general liability with Insureon, 15% pay less than $400 per year and 56% pay between $400 and $800 per year.
The size of your business and the amount of foot traffic in your warehouse can affect the cost of this policy.
Policy limits determine how much your insurer will pay on covered claims. The per-occurrence limit is the maximum your insurer will pay for a single incident, while the aggregate limit is the maximum your insurer will pay on any claims during your policy period, typically one year.
Most wholesalers (93%) choose general liability policies with a $1 million per-occurrence limit and a $2 million aggregate limit. As your small business grows, you may need to expand your policy limits.
