Construction & Public Liability Insurance

Did you know that many Public Liability Policies don’t protect you from negligence claims by your Subcontractors? Relax with our policy we include the Worker to Worker Cover and Cross Liability which will protect you against any negligence claims from your contractors.

Many owner-builders make the simple mistake of under-insuring their project. When insuring you must insure for the Full Replacement Value, not just your cost to build. As a guide you should try to insure for what it would cost to use a builder. This way if you have a major claim you won’t be left out of pocket. You may spend a few extra dollars on the premium, but it could save you thousands in the long run!

Our policies are available Australia wide and are suitable for Owner-Builders.
