The Qld economy has been going from strength to strength over the last decade or so, and the amount of building work required for our growing population has kept plenty of Qld builders very busy.
Here at Builders Insurance we realised how busy Qld builders were, and that’s why we set up our website and easy to use online quote system which allows builders to get quotes on their insurance online rather than having to visit a broker.
We look after builders all over Australia, but our head office and the majority of our broker and adviser network are in fact located right here in Queensland!
By dealing with an insurance broker or financial adviser (depending on your needs) that is based close to you, you can enjoy the convenience of a professional who not only knows the area you work in, but can also visit you at home or on the worksite to help with your builders insurance needs.
Of course we deal with plenty of our builder clients just using phone and email, but if you prefer to deal with someone face to face, the Queensland-based members of our network may be able to come and see you if we have someone based in your area.
Risks that Qld builders face
Builders based in Queensland face many of the same risks and have similar insurance needs to builders based in other states, but there are a few minor differences.
If your work requires that you hold an electrical contractors licence, you will find that the Qld insurance requirements are different to most other states as you will require an addition cover known as ‘consumer protection’.
Queensland also has the unenviable title of being one of the skin cancer capitals of the world. Builders spend a huge amount of time out in the sun, and that makes them highly susceptible to melanoma and skin cancer.
This makes trauma insurance vital for Qld builders, as it can protect you financially if you suffer from a serious skin cancer or other critical illness or condition.
There are other specific insurance needs for Qld builders, and we can help you with identifying exactly which cover you need to meet the requirements.
