Rural Insurance

We Know Farm Insurance

Lycetts advises landowners and farmers on the insurance issues related to increasingly diverse practices, as well as mainstream farming operations.

Providing first-class farm insurance and a high-quality client service requires a depth of knowledge and a true appreciation of the industry issues. With more than 40 years experience in the field of farming and farm-related businesses and properties, Lycetts has well-established contacts with many of the UKs leading farm insurers. This gives us access to a number of markets, enabling us to deliver comprehensive and wide-ranging levels of cover at competitive rates.

 

Bespoke insurance for farmers can be arranged for all types of farm property, including buildings, livestock, produce, deadstock, machinery and office contents. We also provide guidance to ensure that the appropriate cover and sums insured are arranged in respect of buildings, with listing, planning and aesthetic considerations taken into account.

 

With two exclusive core policies underwritten by AXA and PEN Underwriting, Lycetts offers unique cover for the farming industry that can be tailored to suit the needs of contemporary and traditional farming operations.

Client Testimonials

“With Lycetts, you know that the people you are dealing with understand your business, understand what you are about and what you are trying to do. You don’t waste time trying to justify or explain what’s going on.”

George Winn-Darley, Aldby Park, North Yorkshire

“Lycetts grasped the situation cannily and took the long view. We now have an understanding of procedure and a sense of a meaningful engagement with our loss team and the insurer. It’s been an important moment for Buckny and gives us confidence for the future”

Alex Linklater, Buckny Hydro LLP, Perthshire

“There are always concerns when moving insurance brokers, however the way David Still dealt with the quote stage was very reassuring and professional. We get a first class, stress-free claims service. The Lycetts team are always willing to help and quick to respond while David is on hand 24/7 and always goes the extra mile to help us get the best deal. He is very honest and we know he has our best interest at heart. We would 100% recommend David Still and Lycetts. They are the best insurance brokers we have ever had and wouldn’t ever wish to move. We class David as a friend and he is a pleasure to deal with.”

Juliet Milton, Mountfitchet Castle & Norman Village of 1066 including The House on the Hill Toy Museum, Stansted

“I would highly recommend David Still and Lycetts. I moved from another broker a few years back mainly because David actually took time to understand the insurance needs of businesses that were not straight forward to quote for. He was also significantly cheaper than my previous insurer. However, it is not just about the price. It is about the service and attention to detail, not just from David but from Lycetts too. If there is a problem, you can just pick up the phone and know the person you are dealing with knows you and understands your business.”

Marcus Kravis, Kravis amusements arcades and Blue Anchor hotel

“Due to the growing size and complexity of our business, we were keen to find a broker that specialised in the zoo/farm park tourist attractions sector. In May 2016, we moved our insurance to Lycetts and have been delighted with their level of service and knowledge of our industry sector and competitive premiums. They have such a wonderful professional yet friendly approach too!”

Kim Bellis, Managing Director, Tropical Butterfly House

How to claim farm insurance.

In the event of a claim, please notify your Lycetts account executive or claims handler as soon as possible, and certainly of the incident. Some policies have strict time limits for notification of claims, so if there is a delay you may prejudice your claim.

 

If the claim is to be for theft or malicious damage, please remember to report the incident to the police and obtain a crime reference number. On larger claims (in excess of £2,000), insurers may wish to appoint a loss adjuster, in which case your Lycetts team will provide advice on procedure. Regarding liability claims, it is essential that any potential claims are notified to Lycetts immediately and all correspondence is promptly forwarded to your Lycetts contact.
