Need to make a claim?

We are here to help

When a loss occurs or a claim is made against you by a third party, or you become aware of circumstances which could give rise to a loss of claim, it should be reported to your insurer at the earliest opportunity.

We suggest that you contact us rather than the insurer. We will help you collate the information that the insurer is likely to require and will pass it on to your insurer for you. If your insurer needs you to complete a claim form, we will forward this to you and can help you to complete it.

We can assist with

  • Lodging your claim
  • Helping in the preparation of claim information
  • Experienced in dealing with insurance companies and assessors
  • We ensure you get the maximum entitlement under your policy wording

Risk is a part of our lives. It is present throughout our personal and professional lives. Insurance provides the opportunity to minimise risk and should be part of an individuals financial planning in order to live with peace of mind.

Insurance can provide some certainty and allows you to cover for most eventualities.

Purchasing insurance is more economical than saving to pay for a loss or damage of assets – it provides a safety net when you need it most and can help you avoid financial and emotional stress.

WHY USE A BROKER?

Essentially an insurance broker is on your side. At Safeguard Insurance Brokers we are experienced in insurance much like a tax accountant understands tax or a lawyer who provides professional advice. We are experienced professionals and understand the insurance market. It is this knowledge that enables us to assist you in providing you with the best insurance options so you can make an informed choice on your policy or policies.

Cost

Surprisingly to some obtaining insurance via an insurance broker is usually cheaper than ‘going direct’. We have excellent rates with many providers and pass these savings to you.

Your policy is a legal contract.

"“Safeguard took the time to review my current insurance and identified areas of risk. I changed my policy and not only was it more comprehensive it didn’t cost me any more. They really understood my needs.” a

Sandra

‘The most noticeable difference between our former insurer and Safeguard is the genuine attempts to gain a satisfactory result for us rather than readily accepting that we would lose and simply asking us to pay our excess automatically in an attempt to get a speedy resolution, at our cost.’

The Highway Hotel, Adelaide

‘Very helpful and fast response to my claim and settlement of the claim. I posted a replacement quote to Safeguard and got an email next day confirming the claim and my settlement cheque arrived 2 days later!’
