Specialist Industries

We have worked to deliver a range of policies and products for specialist industries and businesses to ensure they have the right level of cover to suit specific business needs. This includes: Maori trusts, rural, electrical, engineering and plumbing.


Unlike other insurance providers we don’t offer off-the-shelf insurance policies for trades businesses. This is because they don’t often cover you for the things you need most. There are often exclusions that you’re not aware of and claims limits, meaning you may not be correctly covered if something goes wrong.

We can arrange cover for:

General (public) liability, tools of trade cover, motor vehicle, key person.



At Dawson Insurance, we can help you find the best farm insurance solutions for all types of rural properties from large producers and stations to life-style blocks. Cover can be tailored to include farm buildings, equipment and machinery, your home and contents, farm cottages, vehicles and implements, livestock and more.

We can arrange cover for:

Farm assets, farm profits and extra costs, vehicles, machinery breakdown, stock deterioration, livestock and even farm income protection.



Investing in forestry can carry risks, at Dawson Insurance we can help you manage these with the right cover. 

 We can arrange cover for:

Loss of trees, storm damage, volcanic eruptions, claims preparation costs, plantation re-establishment and costs arising from firefighting.
