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
