Warehousing &
Distribution Insurance

One less risk to worry about

Warehousing and distribution companies face many potential risks due to the nature of their business operation, calling for careful assessment of risks when arranging insurance.

IFS Risk Solutions have extensive experience in arranging bespoke insurance for all types of warehouse buildings, including storage depots, storage units, self-storage warehouses and retail warehouses, ensuring you are fully protected against unexpected loss or damage.

Typical risks include damage to or theft of property, equipment and tools; computer & machinery breakdown; injury to an employee, contractor or member of the public; and prosecutions or tribunals.

Any of these scenarios could prove to be extremely damaging to business, whatever the size of your company, whether SME or corporate, which is why it is essential to have the correct level of cover in place.

With access to major insurers, including Lloyds of London, and specialist niche providers, we can arrange bespoke insurance to meet your specific requirements, at an extremely competitive premium.

We can also advise on:

  • Public, product and employer’s liability
  • Goods in transit
  • Electrical or machinery
  • Theft
  • Business interruption
  • Accidental damage
  • Refrigerated stock
  • Legal expenses
  • NAWK (National Association of Warehouse Keepers)
  • RHA (Road Haulage Association)
  • Directors’ and Officers’ liability
