Making it easy for tradies

January 5, 2018

When you need expert advice on covering your risks as a tradie, it would be hard to find a crew that knows more about tradies insurance than the imar tradeis team.

For example, team leader, Anna Murrowood, has spent the past 13 years helping tradies understand their risk exposures; recommending the most appropriate policies to them; and ensuring they have the right level of cover.

“We want to make sure our clients can survive any insurable event; that they can stay on the tools and continue to generate income. And because we really do understand the way tradies work, we’ve made sure that we’re easy to deal with.

Let’s face it, for most tradies, their office is the dashboard or the glovebox of their van. They don’t have a scanner or a printer with them, so we’ve put processes in place that allow us to do everything over the phone. All the documentation we use – including certificates of insurance – are smartphone-friendly, so we can get everything done and dusted with the minimum amount of fuss.”

Other things that make imar easy to deal with, include:

  • A ‘no paperwork’ application process
  • Cover available for everything that’s required in the tradie space
  • Monthly premium payment options at no extra cost
  • A dedicated tradie team providing risk management advice, not just insurance solutions
  • Phones that are always answered by a person, not a machine.

And while getting the right cover with imar is easy, so is their claims process.

“We work for the client, not the insurer and we handle the complete claims process. That means there’s no need to worry about the ins and outs of policy wordings – that’s where our expertise comes in. We knuckle down and make sure you get the result you’re after, fairly and quickly.”

Making tools of trade claims easier

A recent media report about a Victorian tradie who had more than $400,000 worth of tools stolen from a locked box on a trailer inside a work-site, shows that even when taking reasonable care to secure your tools, they’re still a very attractive target for thieves.

“We’re seeing more and more claims coming through for tools and a lot more people are recognising that if your van with your tools gets stolen at night, you could suffer a huge financial blow – not just from the costs of replacing them, but also from work you won’t be able to do until the stolen gear has been replaced.

“As result, there’s been increased demand for tools insurance. What’s important to remember, however, is that claims are going to be processed much faster if you keep receipts for your tools, and even better, take photos every time you buy a new piece of equipment.”
