Wool-in-Transit Delivery Warranty


What is our Wool-in-Transit Delivery Warranty?

Elders’ Wool-in-Transit Delivery Warranty provides wool growers with protection against financial loss due to damaged or stolen wool from the sheep’s back, to the wool store.

Why choose Elders’ Wool-in-Transit Delivery Warranty?

  • Protection against financial loss caused by events outside of your control

What does the warranty cover?

  • Wool on the sheep’s back – cover starts when the
    sheep enter the shearing shed
  • Fire – in both your shearing shed and the wool store
  • Theft
  • 3 months on farm storage
  • Unlimited duration of cover whilst in wool store
  • Transit accident
  • Sample grab

What additional costs can I claim?

  • Debris removal – clean up and disposal costs up to a
    limit of $20,000
