Fuel Dealers Coverage is Newest Product from Philadelphia Insurance

By Michelle Voli


Bala Cynwyd, PA3 - January 10, 2013 - Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY), a leading property/casualty and professional liability insurance company for niche markets, now offers insurance coverage specifically designed to protect Fuel Dealers. Several types of businesses are eligible for coverage under PHLY’s product, which is specifically designed for liquid propane, home heating fuel, bulk oil sales, convenience/retail stores, and wholesale fuel dealers.

Philadelphia Insurance Companies’ multiple coverage options help protect the diverse range of businesses operating in the fuel dealers industry. In addition to pollution, auto, and other more common coverages, PHLY offers specialized protection for terminal access cards, liquor liability, and E&S coverage for hard to place exposures. PHLY also offers higher sub-limits for many of the typical coverages which are unique to Fuel Dealers such as $50,000 for Surface Water Contamination of Gas, Pollution from Above Ground Storage Tanks, or Erroneous Delivery. PHLY’s new product conveniently offers these coverages in one package policy that delivers protection for all lines.

"This is an attractive market segment because there are limited carrier options and high premium opportunities in the petroleum oil and fuel dealer industry," said Stephen Jennings, Assistant Vice President of Underwriting for Philadelphia Insurance Companies. "There are only a handful of carriers who can write this exposure and most are very regional in nature. We can provide a nationwide, comprehensive insurance option through our network of independent agents to reach this underserved market."

For more information on this insurance coverage, visit the Fuel Dealers page on PHLY.com. Businesses looking to obtain coverage from Philadelphia Insurance Companies should contact their independent insurance agent or a PHLY sales representative directly at 800-873-4552.
