Why is tradesman insurance so important for tradies?
According to figures released by Macquarie Life (June 2009), manual and trade workers make up the overwhelming majority of income protection claims.
People who are self-employed, particularly in the manual trade professions, should definitely consider income protection insurance.
Most of these claims are related to musculoskeletal injuries.
The Trade Risk Process
Here at Trade Risk we try to make it as easy as possible for tradesmen to get their insurance sorted.
