From the desk of Kelly – Trades Online

I am proud to have been involved in the development of Trades Insurance over the last 15 years, during which time we have led the way in making insurance for tradies as accessible and uncomplicated as possible.

We understand that tradies have limited time to deal with paperwork on a day to day basis, so we are excited to announce the recent launch of our on-line quote and buy system. This has been developed to provide tradies with a simple system to obtain quotations, and then proceed with arranging cover as quickly as possible to allow them to get back on the tools.

The easy use system is delivered through our website and allows a quotation to be provided within seconds by simply answering 4 questions. Once the cover is confirmed, the system instantly generates the policy and Certificate of Insurance by email. We are able to provide Public Liability, Tools of Trade and Personal Accident Insurance cover for over 50 trade occupations.

The system uses latest technology to provide our customers with the option to pay premium in full, or on monthly instalments, at the most competitive premiums available.

However, it is not just about pricing! We are committed to providing the best coverage possible, and include the following benefits that are normally excluded  –

  • Public Liability extended to cover sub-contractors
  • Public Liability extended to cover damage to underground services, even if Dial before you Dig has not been done
  • Automatic cover for Tax Audit
  • Cover for the tradies dog
  • Best cover for tools available – extended to include accidental damage and open air theft when taken in conjunction with Public Liability Insurance

The system is ideal to cater for the individual trade business, and also provides an administration solution for associations or companies that have a large number of members or subbies.

Although the on-line technology will simplify insurance for tradies, we continue to provide personal service and advice to all our clients. Our staff are eager and available to assist with any queries, and can be contacted through the website, by telephone or email.
