All Tool Insurance policies are not the same
This is something important to bear in mind while comparing policies. Not all Tool Insurance Policies may cover the same events.
Theft is one of the biggest concerns for most tradies. In regard to theft, policies are quite different in terms of the cover offered.
There are policies that cover your tools irrespective of the way they are stored. Others cover your tools only if they were stolen from a secured storage or location, and some others don’t even cover theft at all.

Policies also differ in regard to accidental damage. There are policies covering your tools only when they are damaged due to a vehicle accident or a rollover. However, there are policies that cover a broader range of damages due to accidents or unforeseen events.
No matter what policy you choose, make sure you carefully read the PDS (Product Disclosure Statement) so you know that the cover matches your expectations.
Not Insuring Your Tools
Some tradies do continue working without Tool Insurance, just so that they can save a few dollars every week.
