Red Vintage Tractor Parked In Farm Lane

We appreciate the classics

We protect what’s important to you.
We have been protecting farmers across the South West since 1903 and have watched farm and agricultural machinery advance over time.
We share your vintage tractor passion and want to make sure your classics are covered.
We know how much care and attention vintage tractors need to stay their best, so we have designed specific insurance for tractors more than 25 years old that aren’t normally used in the day-to-day running of your farm.

Our vintage tractor insurance provides:

  • Your vintage tractor will be covered whilst at a vintage rally, show, working competition and road runs as well as when it’s parked-up on your farm.
  • Occasional agricultural use such as practicing ploughing skills on land is permitted.
  • Cover for any driver (Exclusions may apply)
  • Up to 6 vehicles covered under one policy
  • Legal Expenses insurance which will help you to reclaim uninsured costs after an accident which was not your fault
  • £5 million Public Liability cover for third party property damage
  • Protection for your own vehicle, trailers and implements against fire, theft and accidental damage
  • Unspecified Trailers and implements up to the value of £50,000 covered automatically

As a mutual organisation, we’re owned by our Members, not shareholders. So, when you speak with one of our advisors, you’re not dealing with a commission-driven salesperson. You’re talking to a local specialist always ready with hands-on advice, assistance and answers you need, whenever you call on them.  

We’d love to talk to you, so for further information or to arrange a quote on our farm insurance please give us or your local advisor a call. Want us to phone you? Simply click on the link and we will call you at a time that works best for you. We are always happy to help.
