Trade Insurance

At Trade Risk we pride ourselves on offering very competitively priced insurance for tradies.

Often we’re cheaper than the big insurance companies, and cheaper than our rival brokers.

Our buying power is a big part of this, as we’ve been able to negotiate special rates thanks to the thousands of tradie clients we look after.

But there’s a new breed of online offering which is now offering public liability at the same price or even lower than us.

We totally get that saving money is important, and if you can save $20 on your insurance, why not?

But you need to go into these things with yours eyes open, because we are definitely not all equals when it comes to providing insurance…

Super cheap public liability

Some of these companies offering very cheaply priced public liability insurance can do so for a reason, and it’s mainly because of their service levels.

Want to speak with someone about your insurance?  Forget it!  Some providers are 100% online and do not even provide a contact phone number.

You might think that’s okay, but believe us, when you have a problem you definitely want to be able to pick up the phone!

These providers often insure anyone.  If you’re a carpenter, a market stall operator or a shopkeeper, they will put you all through the same online system.

Again you might think ‘big deal’, but there are some serious benefits in dealing with a company that specialises in the trades.

When you need to make a claim, or need to make some changes to your policy for a big contract you’ve just won, do you want to deal with a call centre operator (or an email operator) or would you prefer to speak with a team of trade insurance experts?

The Trade Risk difference

Although we have very competitively priced premiums and offer many of our services online, we are very different to these cheap 100% online options.

For starters, we are trade insurance experts.  Our expert staff deal with tradies all day every day.  From sole traders and subbies through to national contracting companies.

Our staff actually know what you do for a living and understand what your risks are.  If you need advice about your insurance needs, our team will be able to give you the right advice.

Here’s some feedback that our clients have provided via independent ratings agency Feefo.  This is the type of service you can expect when dealing with trade experts:

“My brother-in-law was in need of public liability insurance so I googled “public liability insurance for trades” and came across Trade Risk. Trade Risk’s step by step online process is really simple and when it came to getting a quote then signing up,
they have the nicest staff to talk to.

They impressed me so much so, that when my husband needed to get public liability insurance I didn’t bother looking anywhere else. My husband’s cover was a little trickier than the brother-in-laws, but Trade Risk went above and beyond in getting the best cover for the best price.

I would recommend them to anyone that is looking around for insurance.”

Our clients often know our staff by name, such is the level of service we provide:

“Yes I would recommend them. We use you for Public liability insurance. Between Bronwyn and Sophie they are able to answer any query and action everything with great efficiency. Thanks girls!”

And we can help you when things don’t go to plan:

“Our insurance policy had expired while we were overseas on an extended holiday. Upon our return I contacted Trade Risk who advised we needed to take out a new policy.  This was completed with a minimum of fuss and at virtually the same premium.  We were very happy with the service we received from Trade Risk.”

Our service even manages to impress people who had no intention of using us:

“Very prompt service, was never going to sign with Trade Risk as was just quoting, but due to their exceptional service, I could not find a reason not too, even getting my signature over many broker associates of my own.”

As the tradies insurance experts we are here to help:

“The contact person was very helpful as we were unsure what we required. Very easy to have the insurance put in place.”

Yep, we’re always here to help:

“This service is prompt and professional and staff are available to talk to about any issues or concerns. Most impressed and would recommend Trade Risk.”

Okay so you probably get the point now, but we could keep going for pages and pages!  If you want to read more for yourself check our all of our Trade Risk reviews.

This is what you’re paying for when you choose Trade Risk over one of the super cheap options.

And seriously, we’re generally talking about a difference of around $30 – $40 per YEAR.  That’s if there’s any difference at all.

We may be biased, but in our opinion the extra money is the best value you’ll get.  A couple of bucks extra per month to have unlimited access to our trade insurance experts.

If you’re still not convinced, give our team a call on 1800 808 800 and ask them anything about your trade insurance.  You won’t be disappointed.
