Why is insurance so important for tradies?

According to figures released by Macquarie Life (June 2009), manual and trade workers make up the overwhelming majority of income protecton claims.

People who are self-employed, particularly in the manual trade professions, should definitely consider income protection insurance.

Most of these claims are related to musculoskeletal injuries.


Trade Insurance

People often look at trade insurance as an unwanted expense, when really you should look at it as an investment in yourself and your business.

Just like you invest in good quality tools, investing in good quality insurance can provide great benefits down the track.

Investing in good quality public liability insurance may only cost you $50 a month, but the returns can be significant. Causing $10,000 worth of damage whilst on the job isn't that uncommon, and if your public liability covered that cost for you it would be equivalent to over 16 years worth of premiums.

If you caused $50,000 worth of damage (which isn't unheard of) the payout would be equivalent to over 83 years worth of premiums! You cannot argue that paying your trade insurance premiums would not have been a great investment.

It's the same story with trade tool insurance.

$10,000 worth of tool insurance may cost you around $25 a month, but if all your tools were stolen (which will happen to most tradies at least once in their life) the payout will cover 33 years worth of premiums!

When you start doing the same sums for income protection and life insurance the potential returns are dramatically higher.

So stop looking at your trade insurance as an expense, and see it for what it really is - one of the best investments you can make in yourself and your business.
