Insurance is a tricky topic but without it, your work would be a much riskier business.
We’ve answered some common questions below to help you figure out the world of trade insurance…
Why Do I Need Insurance As A Tradie?

If you find yourself in a situation where yourself, somebody else or their property has been compromised as a result of your work, your income and finances are likely to be affected.
With trade insurance, you can make sure external parties, your tools and income are protected should anything unexpected happen, with a significantly less cost to you.

There are a few types of insurances for tradies that you should consider based on the sort of work you are doing.
Typically, the most common types of insurances for tradespeople include:
- Professional Indemnity Insurance
- Public Liability Insurance
