Germania Today | Winter 2019

Phonemenu upgrade boasts convenience, efficiency Have you heard? Germania has updated our phone menu system to ensure a better customer experience! Callers dialing Germania’s local, toll free, and claims direct phone numbers are routed through new automated menu options to better direct callers to the individual who can best assist them with their question or issue. If needed, callers will still have the option to speak with a live operator. Protect your largest investments with new coverage options Machinery is one of the largest investments a farm business can make. As a major asset, farm machinery must be closely monitored and maintained, and eventually replaced. How you insure your equipment – from your tractor to your baler – is key to protecting your investments in the event of a major setback. Germania has expanded its farm and ranch machinery coverage options to include replacement cost coverage as an optional policy endorsement. In the event of damage or loss, a replacement cost policy will help pay to repair the unit to its original condition or replace it with the same or similar model. Replacement cost coverage is a great option for those who don’t feel actual cash value – or depreciated value coverage – is the right coverage for their farm machinery. The replacement cost coverage option is only available for farm machinery units less than 7 model years old and will result in a premium increase. This coverage option will become available when your policy renews in 2020. Please note this coverage contains limitations for tires and tubes. Speak with your agent about how replacement cost coverage for farm machinery can help you better protect your investments.
