Why do I need insurance as a Tradie?

In the case of public liability, it is strongly recommended you consider getting insurance because accidents happen and you need to protect yourself and your business if you injure someone or damage property due to your negligence and are held legally liable.

In the case of tool insurance, tools are stolen most days from tradies and it is not fair. It is highly advised to protect yourself from the potential loss and look into tool insurance to cover the items that get you an income.

In the case of injury and illness, it covers you 24/7, so if you injure yourself on the job site or on the footy oval, you are covered. It pays a weekly amount if your condition is covered, to safeguard you financially temporarily. Please note, this is not income protection insurance.

All good. Easy to organise. They know what you need , and Not selling you something you don't want. Excellent cover for myself and my customers..
Super helpful through the whole process really helped me as it was all very new to me and ended up getting a really good rate. Definitely recommend for tradies going out on their own
I shopped around and not only were IMAR cheaper but also so much easier to deal with. To deal with someone on the phone that listened, understood and found the right fit for my needs. I tried other companies on line but found it difficult and confusing. The personal touch made all the difference
