Testimonial

Testimonial - AET

Edwina Lyall at MBIB has looked after our insurance needs for well over a decade.

We have always been well looked after and feel confident that we are covered for our many and varied activities. We have had several urgent projects with big corporations with tricky contractual terms needing to be finalised and agreed in a short period of time to which Edwina has always managed brilliantly on our behalf.

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

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.
