Insurance solution for smallholders

Autoline Insurance are delighted to offer a new insurance package for smallholders.

There are a lot of smallholdings across Northern Ireland where rural dwellers have either bought or inherited small pieces of farmland around their homes.

Rather than renting the land out, a lot of it is now being farmed by the owner with a few cattle, sheep, pigs or hens.

It is sometimes a struggle to find competitive insurance for these smallholdings as they are not large enough to justify a full farm policy.

This smallholder product offers a solution between home insurance and a full farm policy at very competitive premiums. The Smallholder Insurance policy can be tailored to match the needs of the client, with a selection of sums insured and covers available. Your home insurance can also be included. The product also allows for farm-gate sales of produce, attending local shows with livestock and several other farm diversifications.

Richard Henderson, commercial account manager at Autoline Insurance, said: “The product allows our clients to select the covers and limits they require with available options including home, farm buildings, livestock, tools, public and employers’ liability. We can now provide clients with instant quotes, hold cover immediately if required and create documentation with ease. At Autoline we feel the combination of a fast quotation system, along with flexible cover options really allows us to offer our clients a fantastic insurance deal.”

So, if you have been struggling to find an insurance package that can cover the sale of your free range eggs or vegetables, cover your sheep or pigs, your farm sheds, your tools and equipment and an occasional employee then please get in touch with the farm teams at Autoline Insurance who will be delighted to discuss this product with you.

Autoline have five offices across Northern Ireland in Newry, Enniskillen, Ballymena, Coleraine and Downpatrick. You can also visit the website for more information.
