Bunnings adds insurance to tradies' tool kit


From this week, tools and supplies won't be the only thing tradies can benefit from at Bunnings.

They'll also be able to get a game-changing insurance product that does away with the paperwork and allows tradies to switch their cover levels up and down as their business needs change.

Bunnings has partnered with Evari, whose approach to insurance is all about keeping things flexible and simple and allowing time-poor, on the move tradies to manage their insurance needs from their mobile phone.

Bunnings PowerPass holders will be eligible for a five per cent discount on an Evari policy which can cover legal liability, trade tools and equipment, and tax audit.

Evari CEO, Daniel Fogarty, said the partnership with Bunnings gives tradies a smart new way to manage their insurance and assist with cash flow and provides peace of mind when it comes to protecting, their tools and their liabilities.

"For too long, trades business owners have been locked into rigid, expensive insurance policies which don't meet their changing needs," he said.

"We've done away with the cookie cutter approach and used our unique technology to offer insurance that can be adjusted by tradies as their business changes in-line with demands of different jobs, number of employees and the value of the tools a business is carrying at a particular time.

"It's a level of flexibility that just hasn't been seen in insurance before."

Mr Fogarty said as the go-to for Australian tradies needing tools, building supplies and advice, Bunnings are a perfect partner for Evari and its innovative offering.

"Like Bunnings, Evari is down to earth, offers competitive pricing and is focussed on the specialist needs of trade professionals," he said.
