Carpenter Public Liability Insurance

Carpenter’s jobs can take you lots of places including private houses and business sites. Being on someone else’s property means public liability insurance for carpenters or a self-employed carpenter should be highly considered.

Accidents happen, carpenters can trip or drop tools and public liability protects carpenters against claims lodged against you by a third party, a customer, the general public, your contractors and suppliers. It includes cover for third party personal injury, property damage and legal expenses in defending a claim.

imar’s carpenter public liability insurance offers a choice of indemnity options for 5, 10 or 20 million dollars.

Carpenter Insurance for Tools

If your tools are stolen, you can’t do your job, so tool insurance for carpenters should be highly considered. Drop saws, hammer drills and impact drivers are only a few of the tools that need to be insured in case they are damaged or stolen.

imar tool insurance covers your tools of trade, hand held tools, mobile phones, stock and customer’s property which are used by you in the normal course or scope of your business. Portable electronic goods like mobile phones are covered under the tool insurance for carpenters.

Tool insurance protects your tools or stock if they are stolen or damaged. If your tools are stolen from a locked vehicle or premises, they are protected. If your tools are damaged by fire, vandalism and the collision or overturning of your vehicle, they are protected.

There are important limitations and conditions on cover, particularly where tools are stored and how they are secured; including a deprecation factor on insured values. Please refer to the Product Disclosure Statement.

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
