The bushfires in Queensland and Sydney this week came as a shock and a warning to customers to get sufficient protection to withstand a summer of potential blazes.
As reported yesterday, NIBA CEO Dallas Booth urged customers to seek advice from a broker in choosing the perfect cover for their property.
“Brokers know the insurance market and they really understand the different policy wordings offered by the various insurance companies, so their advice means consumers can be confident that they have the very best cover in place should the worst happen.
“The early on-set of bushfires is a stark reminder of how quickly natural catastrophes can strike, and why it’s so important to have the right level of cover.”
