14 November 2019
Australian insurtech Evari has partnered with Bunnings to offer insurance to more than 700,000 customers.
Cover for members of the retailer’s PowerPass scheme, which is available for professional tradies, includes legal liability, tools and equipment, and tax audit.
Evari was launched two years ago by former Zurich General Insurance CEO Australia and New Zealand Daniel Fogarty.
He says his company’s “differentiated, technology-enabled offering” for trades businesses has been a great success.
“Now with Bunnings we can take the business to the next level,” he said.
“This partnership allows us to take our offering to the heart of the trades industry and co-market with a brand which shares our commitment to making life easier for and providing a great deal to trades businesses owners.”
Mr Fogarty says Evari’s mobile-first approach, paperless policies and simple online processes have been popular with tradespeople across the country.
“Tradies are constantly on the move and generally running their entire business from their phone, so why should managing their insurance be any different?”
Evari has launched a UK office and is also licensing its platform to other insurance businesses.
