by Brian Turner
AXA Commercial Lines and Personal Intermediary has appointed Agrical as its lead chartered loss adjuster for all farming and agricultural claims.
Agrical is the UK’s leading specialist loss adjuster for farms and landed estates. The appointment is for three years and Agrical has the appropriate level of authority to make decisions on 90% of the claims they handle, making the claims process quicker for customers.
Karen Osborne, Leeds Branch Manager for AXA, comments: “Given the current terrible weather conditions being experienced by farmers in many parts of the country, it is likely that we could see claims coming in as the full outcome of its impact are known. Compounded by the other pressures being experienced by farmers today makes it important now more than ever that farmers know they can rely on their insurance cover should they need it and that it is supported by the very best claims service.
“Our claims service is award winning and our mantra is to get our clients back in business as quickly as possible, so having a specialist adjuster like Agrical on board can make a real difference to efficiently handling their claim in these troubled times.”
David Orell, ACII, CIP, ACILA and Divisional Director at Agrical, comments: We’re delighted to be appointed by AXA. It recognises the need for a specialist approach to loss adjusting in agriculture to meet the very particular needs of the farming community.”
