about us

Brindabella Insurance Brokers provide a complete insurance and risk management solution to businesses of all shapes and sizes. We are 100% locally owned and operated, servicing the ACT and surrounding districts.

why use a broker

An insurance broker can save you time, money and worry. Just like an accountant or lawyer who provides you with professional advice, based on years of training and experience, a qualified broker can do the same with your insurance.

Insurance can be incredibly complicated to fully understand, and an insurance broker can help you understand the details of a policy and also work out what level of cover you need so that you are properly protected.

Using a broker doesn’t necessarily cost more. Often it costs less because brokers have knowledge of the insurance market and the ability to negotiate competitive premiums on your behalf. In addition, because insurance brokers deal with a range of insurance companies directly, sometimes they can access policies that are not available to most consumers.

who we are

We commenced in 2013 as Brindabella Insurance Service, after which the business grew rapidly, which enabled us to obtain our own Australia Financial Services License (AFSL) in 2017.

As of 1 January 2018, we began operating under our new license as Brindabella Insurance Brokers.

In the event of a claim, we will act on your behalf, liaising with the insurance company to negotiate the best possible outcome for your business. We are, and always will be, on your side, by your side.

Brindabella has always provided us excellent service. In particular, Parlour was destroyed by fire in 2011. Brindabella was instrumental in ensuring we were properly insured before the fire, and fairly and adequately recompensed by our insurance company after the fire.I continue to be impressed by Brindabella’s personalised service, attention to detail and integrity.
