Halwell is now licensed for two new lines of business! Read below to learn more about these coverages:
1. Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle Systems (UAVS)
Also known as: Drones!
What is a drone?
It is a power-driven aircraft that is operated without a person onboard, with its flight controlled either autonomously by onboard computers or by the remote control of an operator.
Why is Halwell covering them?
The future of farming is here – and UAVS are a big part of that. Farmers will be able to use UAVS in a variety of ways to help them daily.
What are the approved uses?
• Farm use only, including:
• Crop surveillance
• Crop health imaging
• Enhance security
• Improve water use & pest management
• Monitor livestock
• Special acceptance is required for spraying.
2. Farmer’s Accident Insurance
What is it?
Farmer’s Accident Insurance coverage has two parts:
i) Accidental death and dismemberment benefits
ii) Replacement labour expenses
Why are we covering it?
A farmer works for themselves – farming is their livelihood. If they are injured and can’t tend to their farm like they need to, they could essentially lose everything. This coverage is to ensure that if a farmer is badly injured or killed while farming, they will be covered in the above two areas.
Coming soon …
We will be putting together training sessions for insuring drones – stay tuned!
