Tradies generally need Tool, Vehicle, and Liability cover. All our products are modular so you won’t be paying for what you don’t need. Is it worth it? Well, can you afford to replace your tools if they get nicked, or the court fees and penalties for defective workmanship?
Lucky you! With the number of claims we get, not everyone seems so fortunate. As a subbie, you take all the responsibility on your own shoulders, so it’s not even worth the risk.
As you are personally responsible when you’re on the job, you need to ensure you’re fully protected. As well as Vehicle and Tool cover, you’ll need Public and Statutory Liability and Professional Indemnity, and maybe even LBP. If you’re unsure, give us a ring and we’ll make sure you stay risk free while only paying for what you need.
We don’t want you to miss your livelihood so we’ll have you back to work with everything you need in 24 – 48 hours. You’ve probably got some pretty sweet stuff in there too. That’s why all gear under ten years old will be replaced with a brand spanking new set.
Your current employer’s vehicle insurance should cover you for all accidents and damages when the vehicles being used for work purposes, assuming you’ve got a valid license.
Not necessarily my friend. As you’re hired on a contract basis, you are only protected under their Liability cover when directly working on their work site. If you’re carrying out any jobs on the side, you’ll need your own cover.
If you hit a gas pipe on the job, you’re paying. Public Liability will protect you from personal injury or property damage.
If the apprentice or any employee working under you is hired by the employer, you are not responsible and they will be protected under the employer’s liability. If you’ve hired them, you are responsible and will need Employer’s Liability Insurance. Any doubt, get in contact – it’s better to be sure.
If you’re signing off work, you’re responsible. As well as suspending or losing your licence, you can be personally fined up to $20k. Not worth it bro! We can tailor a special cover for LBPs to include the extra cover you need as someone who takes the responsibility for the work of others.
Even if your employer has Professional Indemnity cover, you’re not free from risk. You can be held liable for defective workmanship if your name is on the warranty. Give us a call and we’ll tell you exactly what you need without the bull.
