At a glance
Mixed-use farm - cropping, sheep, Northern Tasmania, 24 ha
Buildings including 3-bedroom family home, extensive shedding, stockyards
Machinery & vehicles including family car, ute, tractor, planter, harvester, quad-bikes
Apart from an occasional email or call to update their portfolio, equipment etc, Paul and Jenna* didn’t have any need to get in touch with us. That was until a fire broke out in a machinery shed and spread to a fodder shed. The tractor, planter and harvester were lost, along with an entire shed of hay.
Thanks to our personalised and individual approach to insurance, we had been out to visit Paul and Jenna’s farm. We’d seen the set-up, which meant everything was covered and fully insured, so although there was some inconvenience, we were able to get their claim processed quickly and without any hassle.
Paul and Jenna had their claim handled, their farm cleaned up and equipment replaced all within a matter of 4 weeks. Meaning while there was interruption, their farming business wasn't severely impacted.
Working on the land brings many rewards – but it also brings risks. As a farm owner, it’s important for your business and livelihood to ensure you’re covered correctly. Whether your farm is large or small, we can individualise each insurance package to suit you and your needs.
