Agriculture and Machinery Dealers

AgShield is a scheme, underwritten by AXA, that provides specialist insurance for agricultural machinery dealers. The AgShield team at Stackhouse Poland has researched the requirements of the dealer market to ensure that the cover we provide is both adequate and relevant to its needs.

Our experienced staff have been working with agricultural and horticultural machinery dealers for many years, so you can trust us to arrange the right cover for your business. We can create a comprehensive, relevant and cost effective insurance package designed specifically to meet your requirements.

Summary of cover

A standard motor trade policy doesn’t generally provide the essential cover that agricultural or horticultural machinery dealers require, can be very expensive and have add-ons that offer little or no benefit to you or your business. This can result in you paying for cover that is not relevant to your requirements.

We take the time to thoroughly understand your business, and the cover we provide will be specifically designed to meet the needs of your business. Our standing in the market allows us to obtain preferential rates with insurers and our independence enables us to concentrate on providing a high quality service to our clients.
