H&H INSURANCE BROKERS
FARMS AND ESTATES
Many might not perceive farming to be a dangerous industry, but the reality is quite the contrary.
“Farming is the UK’s most dangerous industry, with more work-related injuries than any other sector, including construction,” says John Noone, sales director at H&H Insurance Brokers.
“Rural crime is another factor, with a theft cost estimated at £42.5m in 2015.” For over 140 years, H&H has been servicing agricultural communities across the North of England and Scotland. It offers a range of coverage, including farm vehicle and in-livestock insurance, as well as the firm’s combined farm insurance that allows clients to tailor policies to meet their requirements.
Noone says the top challenge in insuring this sector is the specialist knowledge needed to properly provide professional and personal service while placing the right coverage. This year, H&H has continued its expansion with the purchase of Armitage Smallholder Agency and the opening of a new office in Newtown St Boswells.
