Austbrokers Countrywide is proud to be the preferred insurance and risk advisor to the Grey Army.
We provides insurance protection tailored to the needs of tradies. Whether you’re a gardener, handyman, plumber or electrician, our trades insurance offers flexible cover for your business. We have developed a specific Public & Product Liability, General Property, Trailer and Personal Accident insurance policies for members that will help you save money on the overall cost of insurance and provide a tailored policy where cover is not adequate.
Public & Product Liability
Accidents can happen. A rock flicked by a lawnmower onto a car, a ladder slipping and hitting someone are just two examples.
Property damage or injury in the workplace is not only devastating but can potentially put you in a huge financial loss.
Our Public liability insurance covers you in the event claims are made against your business. Example, if you are found legally liable for personal injury or damage to a third-party property. The insurance will also cover you for any legal costs associated with defending claims against your business.
Our cover also includes Product liability insurance: If you supply goods, there will be a possibility where your product could cause damage to a third party. Example, a tiny defect on your goods may incur you with financial losses. This cover is significantly important to protect product manufacturers.
We offer sums insured of $10,000,000 or $20,000,000
Benefits in this policy includes:
• Defence Costs and Expenses
• Tenants Liability
• Personal Injury
• Property Damage

Personal Accident Cover
Personal accident is a form of insurance for tradies which can pay you a weekly benefit for a period of time whilst you cannot work.
To be eligible to claim on the policy, you must have suffered an injury (or illness if the option is selected) that has left you unable to work.
Whilst the insurance is more popular with tradies who work as subcontractors or for their own business, it still has benefits for those who work on wages or salary. We can help you understand the different options that make up a personal accident policy, as they will have a major impact on your claim.
- Cover is accident only
- Weekly benefit is up to $800
- Benefit period – 104 Weeks
