Helpful insights:

Property:

In the event of damage or loss of property:

  • Ensure that the remainder of your property is not exposed to further loss or damage
  • Advise us. In the event of burglary or theft, the Police must be notified immediately
  • Complete the relevant insurer’s claim form
  • Obtain a quotation for repairs

In the event of serious damage, your insurers will appoint a loss adjuster to inspect the damage and authorise repairs.

Minor damage repairs will be authorised upon receipt of the completed claim form and repair quotation.

Glass:

In the event of glass breakage:

If your claim relates purely to glass breakage, contact one of the below glaziers which are preferred suppliers for many insurers:

Property & Vehicle Glass

O’Brien Glass
Ph: 1800 645 011
Website: www.obrienglass.com.au

Vehicle Glass
Novus Glass
Ph: 08 6555 2658 (WA & NT) / (07) 3866 2700 (QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS & SA)

You will need your Policy number and the name of your Insurer. In most instances, the glazier will be able to send their invoice direct to your Insurer. If your glazier requests that you arrange payment up front we can then arrange lodgement of the claim on your behalf to request reimbursement from your Insurer.
