    PLUMBERS INSURANCE

    OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PLUMBERS

    Atlantic Plumbers Insurance are a leading Insurance provider for Plumbers. For over 25 years we have successfully serviced the needs of plumbing businesses across Australia. Plumbers have unique Insurance needs and in some states require certain Policy endorsements to ensure the Renewal of your Plumbing Licence.

    For Plumbers in Victoria maintaining appropriate Insurance is not optional, it is a compulsory requirement of the Industries Ministerial Order if they want to renew their plumbing license. Atlantic has been arranging Plumbers Liability Policies and forwarding their certificates of currency to the Plumbing Industry Commission, or as it is no known the Victorian Building Authority (VBA) for 25 years.

    A key focus in establishing the Ministerial order in Victoria was the “consumer” and protecting them against non-compliant and or faulty workmanship. Queensland Electricians have a similar arrangement. In Victoria every Plumbers Liability Policy to abide by the relevant legislation must have a “Consumer Protection Liability” section which provides a 6 years warranty on works carried out.

    PLUMBERS RISK – OUR OBSERVATIONS

    Whilst the CPL (Consumer Protection Liability) of a Victorian Plumbers Liability Policy does provide a level of protection for the consumer, it is an area Insurers have become increasingly mindful of during the past 10 year where property development and home renovations have and  taken-off.  Inevitably this surge in activity is leading to an increased claims activity.  The reality is that issuing a compliance certificate for works undertaken does become a means from which the consumer can liaise with the VBA and secure the details of the Plumber and ultimately lodge a claim against their Plumbers Liability Policy.

    CURRENT CLAIMS LANDSCAPE

    Our experience in assisting to manage the risks of Plumbers and Plumbing Businesses for the past 25 years is extensive and during that time there would not be many claims scenarios that we haven’t seen first hand.

    A Plumbers Liability Policy is designed to protect you and your business in the event that a customer, supplier or any other third party suffer a personal injury or damage to their property as a result of your negligence.  A Liability policy will help to defend your position in a situation where an allegation or demand is made against you by a third party.  As levels of litigation reach all-time highs in Australia we are seeing a continual increase Liability claims where even the most basic of legal responses can incur thousands of dollars.  The right insurers are well informed and will help to protect you and your businesses interests when a Liability claim is made against you.  As is the case with all Insurance policies you do not want to wait until a claim presents to determine you are not adequately Insured or properly represented.
