Pest Control Australia is always driven to offer our clients the best available ‘peace of mind’ solutions.
For the first time, Australian Homeowners can now purchase insurance against termite damage.
Pest Control Australia and Rapid Solutions are thrilled to announce the new “Termite Insurance” for homeowners. If you have had termites and had an appropriate treatment installed, then you will qualify for this fantastic insurance that offers 5 years of cover for only $420. That’s less than $1.61 per week.
What is it?
Termites = no insurance cover?
Don’t be surprised to find that your current Building Insurance does not cover YOU against the structural damage that termites cause. Most, if not all, insurance policies specifically exclude structural damage caused by termites. It’s a big worry especially considering that Australia has the most destructive termites in the world. A recent CSIRO survey revealed that more than one in every three homes will be attacked by termites resulting in an estimated damage bill of more than $100 million every year.
Saving you the cost of repairs
How would you like the peace of mind of knowing that if termites invaded your home and caused structural damage, you wouldn’t have to pay the repair bill. Well now this peace of mind can be yours!
What is it?
A five year termite insurance policy designed to give you complete peace of mind following the installation of an approved termite management system
What does it cover?
If termites enter your home and cause timber damage during the insurance period, your TimberSecure insurance policy will cover all structural & decorative timber repairs or replacement, up to the value of $100,000*.
And, you don’t have to pay an excess!
Also, if you sell your home the insurance policy is fully transferable to the new owner (an administration fee is applicable to the new owner).
How do I get it?
To get started, you need to arrange for Pest Control Australia to install a complete termite management system.
Within four weeks of the installation, you contact us and complete an application and forward payment for the policy.
Following payment, all you need to do is have regular inspections of the protected structure (as per the pest controller’s recommendations).
If during the next five years termites enter your home, there’s no need to panic because you will be covered for the repairs.
A big weight off your shoulders
The TimberSecure Insurance policy is underwritten by specialist pest management insurer, Pacific International Insurance Limited . It gives you security and peace of mind knowing your policy is backed by a company that understands the devastation these pests can cause. You can relax knowing that the policy is a ‘no fault’ policy and you can be assured that claims can be settled quickly.
