In preparation for the impending danger period we would strongly recommend that you review your current insurance covers.
Indications are that the 2020-2021 summer will be another period of extreme fire danger.
Over recent years and especially last year, we have seen the devastating effects of fire and the impact it has on life and property.
In preparation for the impending danger period we strongly recommend that you review your current insurance covers.
Areas most impacted by grass and bush fires are:
- Hay and Fodder
- Farm sheds
- Farm Contents
- House and Contents
Adjustment and additions can be made to these sections at any time, however insurers have a 48 hour wait period on new and increased covers against losses arising from Bush Fire. They also will place an embargo on accepting risks or increasing covers that are under threat from an existing fire.
So it is best to review your current policy now and get any changes in place well before the smoke can be seen over the hill!
Our team welcome the opportunity to discuss your needs and assist you in making any adjustments necessary.
