Reducing on-farm risks is key to building resilience and keeping premiums down.
At Achmea, we’re proud to be different from every other farm insurer in the country. We believe not every risk needs to be covered by insurance. For more than two centuries, our unique approach has been to work together to keep farmers farming. Protecting livelihoods through proactive risk mitigation is at the heart of our approach.
Backed by more than 200 years of experience, we are committed to reducing on-farm risks. We believe reducing risks can keep unexpected repair bills and premiums down.
To schedule a Risk Review for your farm, get in touch with your local Risk Specialist
Equipped with a unique understanding of local farming conditions, our Risk Specialists will walk your farm as part of our on-farm Risk Review.
Together with you, we walk the farm to review all your buildings, sheds and machinery including the contents and inventory. Our on-farm Risk Review can help identify hazards and avoid losses before they occur, keeping your repair bills and premiums down. For those risks that can’t be eliminated, you can tap into our 200 years of expertise in farm insurance. With Achmea, you decide what you need and how you need it – giving you greater control over your premiums.
Committed to protecting and enhancing regional communities, we’re farm insurance done right.
Bromelton couple Susan and Andy Shay are behind a free-range poultry farm and made the switch to Achmea several years ago. Susan said there had always been the discussions about risk mitigation and using knowledge from other parts of the world to make sure that they were safeguarding their livelihoods.
Their local Risk Specialist is Karla Caldicott, who partners with farmers in South East Queensland.
“One of our Senior Risk Specialists from the Netherlands, Marco, joined me in the lead up visits. We identified with Susan and Andy that we needed external alarms and also visual alarms. And of course, to their credit, they went ahead and actually installed them which was great,” Karla said.
In March 2017, tropical Cyclone Debbie hit their property. Susan said “the contact from Achmea Australia and the assessors has been second to none”.
“Karla and her team have been in regular contact with us, making sure that all of our needs have been met along the way,” Susan said.
“You know, that’s one of the things in these kind of events that is at the forefront of people’s mind is that ‘what will be the response of your insurance company’ and for us Achmea Australia have ticked all the boxes right from the beginning”.
