Sentry Risk Factor

Is your dealership’s risk management best in class? We want to help you get there. As a business insurance company with experience in the dealer industry, we can help protect your business when you experience a loss. But at Sentry, we want to do more than just help protect your dealership and your employees—we want to work with you to prevent losses from happening in the first place.

That’s why we offer Sentry Risk Factor, our risk assessment tool designed specifically for dealerships like yours.

How the tool benefits you

Help ensure business continuity

When you experience a loss, it can slow down—or even temporarily halt—your business. Meanwhile, your competitors pass you by. Reducing risk helps you avoid putting your business, your employees, and your customers on hold.

Maintain your reputation

You’re well known in your community and among other dealers. Consider what a large loss could do to your reputation. Doing what you can to prevent tangible losses helps avoid intangible results, and, if you have a claim, we'll be there to help you cover direct costs. However, no coverage can help you buy back your reputation. If a loss does occur, having a proven culture of safety can provide reputational armor.

Your risk management report

To get started with Sentry Risk Factor, we'll meet with you to discuss operations and safety culture at your dealership. Based on the details of our conversation, we'll use our Sentry Risk Factor tool to create a detailed report with the following information.


Sentry Risk Factor evaluates your risk management in five categories: Safety culture, auto risk, building and inventory risks, service practices, and premises observations.

Based on our conversation, Sentry Risk Factor assigns you one of three rankings in each category, and one overall ranking.


Additional resources

The report lists resources specific to areas of opportunity at your dealership. We’ll provide resources to help you implement recommendations and get on the path to being best in class.
