Testimonial - TC Build

As a growing Residential Builder, being caught up by the constraints of Insurance at a governmental level is one of our worst nightmares.

The importance of having an adequately experienced and proactive brokerage firm at your side is absolutely paramount if you want to be able to weave your way through an increasingly complex regime. This is where MBIB comes into their own.

Knowingly, we had a very complex and unique case ahead of us, but the team were able to dissect and organise our case to quickly progress through the channels in a very efficient manner.

Testimonial - Perkins

Perkins Builders have operated in the construction industry for 55 years, our experience has taught us we need to be proactive and prepared for many unexpected events no matter how unlikely.

Construction is an industry with various challenges and risks some of these appearing suddenly with many capable of causing serious harm.

Perkins recommend MBIB to builders of all sizes wanting effective representation in the insurance market delivered by people who know the industry.

Testimonial - Comdain

Back in 2016 Comdain Homes was unhappy with our current general insurance broker and went to the market.

We had always used Master Builders Insurance Brokers for our Warranty but not General Insurance. We met with the Victorian team and they delivered an impressive presentation and cost effective insurance program for us to consider. Our business relationship began that year and I’m sure will continue into the future.
