Sayles - Industries

Regardless of what you do, what we do is protect your financial future. Below are a few industries we have worked with in the past, but we go well beyond this list to serve a variety of clients and their needs.

importers and exporters

Importers & Exporters

As a gateway for importing and exporting around the world, New Jersey boasts five strategically placed Foreign Trade Zones, two international airports and ports at both ends of the State, including the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the third busiest port in North America. At David G. Sayles Insurance Services, our team of professionals supports this thriving industry providing importers and exporters with responsive insurance solutions.

We help importers and exporters insure goods against loss and/or damage during transit; and not just to the port or airport, but all the way through to the place of destination with marine cargo insurance. We will review with you the various ways that merchandise can be valued so that at the time of a loss the insurance settlement is appropriate for your needs. Coverage can be extended to include:

  • Bankruptcy Expense
  • Barge Coverage
  • Concealed Damage
  • Consolidation Coverage
  • Container Demurrage Charges
  • Contingent FOB/ FAS/C&F Purchases
  • Returned/Refused Shipments
  • Shortage from Containers
  • Refrigeration Breakdown
Errors and omissions insurance is also available to cover the financial exposures and liability as a result of improper performance of, or the failure to perform, your professional services, including your activities as a customs broker, property broker, domestic freight forwarder, international freight forwarder, NVOCC, warehouseman, etc. Some of the most common types of claims include: failure to follow instructions, shipping delay caused by the negligence of an employee, improper quotation of charges, incorrect document preparation, unauthorized release of goods, misdirection, failure to collect documents, failure to properly clear goods upon entry, incorrect classification of goods, failure to insure cargo when instructed to do so, negligent selection of trucker or other carriers, among other activities.

Wineries & Breweries

David G. Sayles Insurance Services provides specialty insurance products for the craft beverage industry, which includes wineries and breweries. Our experience in this niche gives us a unique understanding of your business and the diverse exposures you face. For example, if a certain wine vintage is tainted by sour grapes, an unexpected storm causes damage to your continuous still equipment, or a worker is injured while hauling boxes of bottles through a warehouse, we know how to protect you with reliable commercial insurance coverage.

Our portfolio of coverages includes:

  • Property
  • Equipment Breakdown
  • Business Interruption
  • Inland Marine
  • Crime
  • General Liability/Product Liability/Liquor Liability
  • Cyber Liability
  • Commercial Automobile
  • Umbrella Liability
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • And Specialized Enhancements

To provide you with the right combination of coverages, we will examine your risk. Our staff will meet with you to tour your premises and your various operations, including whether you have wine or beer tastings on your premises. We’ll evaluate the equipment you use on site. We’ll discuss the vehicles used to transport materials or beverages to and from a winery or brewery, and whether employees serve as drivers, or if a business owner hires truck operators on a contractual basis. We will also review your annual business income and receipts to determine the extent of loss you’ll face if you need to temporarily close after a covered loss. These are just a few of the issues we’ll go over with you to put together a comprehensive plan tailored to your operation.

At David G. Sayles Insurance Services, we want to make sure your business insurance is ready to cover a liability, property, or workers’ compensation loss and that your assets are protected.
