Construction mason worker bricklayer


Here at Tradies365, we know how hard bricklayers work to prop up Australia’s construction and manufacturing industries. That’s why we’re committed to making bricklayer’s insurance simple, straightforward and affordable.

Tradies365 creates tailored insurance policies for bricklayers who want the best cover to get on with the job.

Brickies’ insurance provides protection and peace of mind for the 20,000 to 30,000 bricklayers across the country, their clients, and equipment.

The right trades insurance policy can be the difference between going out of business or getting back to work.

Your tools are worth their weight in gold to you and Tradies365 understands that. This is why we recommend a separate policy to protect your tools both on and off the job.

Our customisable plan will cover:

  • Theft from the forced entry of a locked vehicle or locked building
  • Loss because of fire, flood, and designated perils
  • Damage caused by an accident while in transit

Your policy covers you throughout Australia; with stock covered up to $2,000 and cover of individual items $2,000 per item.

Items needing more than $2,000 coverage should be noted. Additional charges will NOT apply for the additional cover on specified items.

You know that you and your fellow tradies do a tough job in a safe manner; unfortunately, accidents can happen to the best of us. This is why in many cases, you are legally bound to have public liability insurance. It will safeguard you in the event that you cause direct or indirect damage or injuries occur on the job site.

Our public liability policy is payable to Tradies365 in instalments and will cover damages to third parties as well as legal fees up to five million dollars.

You can assemble a top-shelf crew and give them the finest tools available, but without transportation to the job site, you won’t accomplish much. This is why insurance for your vehicles and trailers is essential.

Tradies365 has a long history of helping bricklayers get affordable coverage to protect your transportation and your livelihood.

Why do bricklayers need insurance?

The financial impact of an accident, negligence claim or theft can be devastating for the majority of bricklayers who are sole traders or small businesses. A tailored insurance policy from Australia’s trades insurance experts, Tradies365, helps brickies recover financial losses and get on with the job.


Essential insurance for bricklayers

Bricklayers face a wide range of risks. Unfortunately, not all of them are obvious. 

If an employee’s health suffers, a client is injured, or their property is damaged, the tradesperson can be held financially liable. They can even wind up in court.

As a contractor or sole trader, it’s essential to have cover in case of accidental damage, injury, theft or negligence:

  • Tools insurance: Replacement cover for tools and equipment you need to get the job done.
  • Public liability insurance: Financial protection against negligence claims from a third party, including accidental damage and injury.
  • Vehicle insurance: Cover for the car (or ute, truck or fleet) you use to get to and from work.
  • Contract works insurance: Insurance for losses and claims arising after you finish the job and leave the site.
  • Worker’s compensation insurance (WorkCover): Essential insurance for bricklayers’ employees.

Income protection insurance: Your safety net in case illness or injury prevent you from working.

Tools insurance

Every tradie depends on their tools. Tradies365 tools insurance for bricklayers provides replacement cover when your equipment or stock are stolen, damaged or lost.

Need cover above $2,000?

You can note individual items with a replacement value exceeding $2,000 at no extra cost.
