    RPS is wholesale, I dont believe they do any retail... that's why you can work with many.

    Excuse my arrogance, but what is the difference between a wholesaler and a retailer?

    lol... that's not arrogance at all!

    Ok a retail agency is one that sells insurance directly to the consumer, i.e. whoever you buy your car insurance from is considered a retailer.

    A wholesaler would be an agency that DOES NOT sell to the general public. They sell policies by using agencies to sell for them. Usually E&S business but there are many standard and main street offerings working their way into that world.

    Ya man, you mentioned you have been in the trucking industry for a while. Guessing you have friends that own companies? If you went wholesale you would still need a retailer to handle the account. You wouldnt be able to work direct with your friends

    Eugene, he isn't talking about BEING a wholesaler, I believe he is suggesting using a wholesaler but BEING a retailer. So... @DIGroup do you want to work with your associates and friends, or not... Then we can tell you what you want to be lol
