Insurance

We have approx 25 hectares of land on the East Coast of Tasmania on which we have recently erected shed. We are not farming it yet but do intend to re vegetate it as it is very degraded. What kind of insurance is appropriate and who might provide the best deals?

Hello Hellen,

 

Insurance is a specialised field and the answer to your Q is it depneds on what assets you are insuring and against what risks are you seeking cover. - Not very helpful answers. 

 

Rural Insurance is a seperate field and not all insurers cover it. Can I suggest to begin with,

 

1) talk with your current insurer and see if they have a section that deals with farm / rural insurance

 

2) talk with a specialist rural insurance business, there are a number and a quick google search will bring up a listing

 

3) If your needs are complex talk with a broker (again a quick search will  find many) and they can shop around on your behalf and pool many policies (rural, domestic, life, car etc) together. Good brokers also manage the claims process as well - check in see excatly what services are being offered.

 

Regards

 

Peter - Martbank.

Hi Helen,

Welcome to the forum  and thanks for the question.

Most small farmers particularly those that are not dealing with an insurance broker often aren't able to obtain the advice they need to setup a small farm insurance policy correctly in particular their farm liability cover. Those that purchase a stand alone home and contents policy may believe they are covered under their domestic liability but more often than not this isn't the case.

Recently, we have launched Farmstyle Insurance which offers customised insurance protection for small farmers (without the complications of a large farm insurance policy) on an easy-to-transact online. Please see the link below for further information and to get a quote.

Charlie
