The McDonald Everest Team.



New Zealand is proving its resilience and is well on the way to being on top of the national COVID-19 pandemic.

Firstly, we recommend you keep informed with information from reliable sources, like the government site:, which has everything you need to know about COVID-19, all in one place.

Secondly, please be assured, McDonald Everest Insurance Brokers has a plan in place, and we have worked to ensure we can provide continuous service to you, our clients. As an essential business, we are closely following Government guidelines.

We have full capability to work remotely and as such to continue to provide insurance services to you.

No matter where you are based you can still reach us on our normal telephone number 06 758 1199: You will then be directed to choose whom you wish to speak to and then connect to their mobile phone. Or alternatively, email addresses are listed on our website. You can also email

When the alert level drops again and we are permitted return to the office, we will update this message.

How insurance responds

We are being asked by clients if they are covered for losses linked to the virus. General insurance does not provide protection against losses linked to the Global Pandemic Covid-19. Insurance companies have excluded loss caused by disease for many years.

Please contact your broker for more on any other covers you have in place and are seeking clarity on.

How we can help you

Our primary focus is to ensure all our clients remain insured and therefore protected. We will continue to ensure all policies are renewed prior to the renewal date. We will also be looking at options to support the individual needs of clients as their business environment and requirements change. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your insurance. You can phone 06 758 1199 or email


We are a resilient country, with adaptable people and resources. By working together, we believe that we will come out the other side of this situation stronger.

As always, our team are here to help you, if you have any other questions, please contact us.

In these challenging times, please support one another, be kind and stay calm.

Best Wishes,

The Team at McDonald Everest.
