Landscapers understand good design. You know what type of paving presents well and which specific plants will work in a client’s courtyard. At Tradesure, we are focused on tailoring insurances and service to fit just right. We specialise in insurance cover for landscapers. Our professional team can arrange an insurance package which covers your specific needs as a landscaper including the absolute essentials like Public Liability Insurance.
Public Liability Insurance can protect you if you directly or indirectly cause damage to someone else’s property or an injury to a third party while working on a job site. It is often a requirement and can provide financial aid in the event that an accident causing injury or damage occurs.
OTHER COVERS AVAILABLE

LANDSCAPER SICKNESS AND ACCIDENT INSURANCE
To ensure our trade clients are adequately insured, we strongly recommend sickness and accident insurance to protect their income. Think about your own financial situation, your ability to provide for yourself and your dependants, plus the effect it would have on your business if you were unable to work due to an accident or sickness.
At Tradesure we think this is one of the most important insurances any self employed landscaper can have. We have a range of choices including 1. Accident and Sickness and 2. Accident Only cover, with varying benefit periods (the maximum time you will be paid) from 1 year up to 5 years for Accident Claims and up to 2 years for sickness claims.
Tradesure offers 24/7 Illness and Injury Insurance that has you covered whether you get hurt at work or get sick on vacation and offers monthly premiums through Premium Funding (Additional charges apply).
CONTRACT WORKS INSURANCE
Contract Works cover damage to the work you are doing while under construction from occurrences such as flood, storm, theft of materials and fire. Although this is often insured by the builder on projects, there maybe cause for you as a contractor to insure the work/contract you are undertaking. To ascertain if this is required, we suggest you check your contract details. As a landscaper you can insure any single contract or have an Annual Contract Works policy to cover all the work you do. Monthly premiums are available through Premium Funding (Additional charges apply).
If you have employees then you need to have them covered by Workers Compensation (Work Cover in some States). At Tradesure we can obtain competitive Workers Compensation premiums for you with Australia’s biggest insurers who also provide an efficient and proactive claims service. We also recommend that you check with your local state authority to see that any of your subcontractors maybe classed as employees under your states Workers Compensation legislation and that you may be required by law to insure subbies under your Workers Compensation policy.
PROMPT CLAIM SERVICE
We understand it’s important that claims be dealt with as quickly as possible. If your claim details and paper work are in order, we guarantee a maximum 5 business days settlement on your tools claim. Trade Insurance Claims receive priority and we have a dedicated team member to support you with any claims you make, to make sure you receive your full entitlements as soon as possible.
