Specialist Industries

Working on the land brings many rewards – but just as many risks.

As a farm owner, you’re vulnerable to bushfires that can destroy produce, livestock or damage your buildings and other property; machinery breakdown which can cost you time and money; personal illness or a serious accident; or even a claim from a guest injured on your property. Whether you’re a large-scale crop grower or livestock producer or a small family or hobby farm, McLardy McShane Freer can help protect your farm, its produce and livestock – and the people who benefit from it.

Construction projects involve multiple stakeholders and are often undertaken on challenging sites.

Construction businesses must often manage changes to scope or orders, poorly written contracts and specifications and complex project management issues. They may need to deal with labour and materials shortages, or theft of tools and materials. Subcontractors and suppliers can provide extra stress for construction firms, as can the rising number of extreme weather events. What’s more, cybercrime is an emerging threat to construction businesses, which often use insecure connections from mobile workplaces, and share files and data with stakeholders outside the business. Whether you’re an owner builder, a contractor or a large construction company, you’ll need a range of insurance covers to safeguard your workers, building and equipment.

Manufacturing is one of the most diverse industries in which different products require different production methods and are sold to different markets.

Businesses face diverse opportunities and challenges from production line to the export market, forcing them to work smarter to maintain competitiveness. McLardy McShane Freer offer tailored packages for the individual needs of such clients . Backed by the knowledge of our experienced staff, we give you the confidence to expand and grow – nationally and/or internationally.

At McLardy McShane Freer, we understand the risks you face whether you own a repair garage or Motor Dealership.

We can arrange Motor Trade Insurance suited to the needs of your business through a specially selected and trusted panel of insurers.

Transport and logistics businesses face a broad range of risks depending on the area of operations they specialise in, but a shortage of skilled workers and work health and safety concerns are among the long-standing risks facing all operators.

Newer risks are also emerging driven by operational changes such as the emergence of new technologies in the form of tracking, automation and autonomous vehicles. Population growth and the associated rise in demand, congestion and infrastructure pressures, and environmental concerns linked to climate change, are also redefining the risk landscape for transport and logistics companies.

Whether you operate a large national fleet or are an owner-driver, and whether you store goods or only transport them, you should have a range of insurance covers to protect your workers, safety and commercial risks.

At McLardy McShane Freer, we can arrange insurance covers for all professional service providers.

From liability to professional indemnity, loss of income and business insurance.
