TimberSecure is a termite insurance policy that supports you in gaining and retaining clients. It helps you provide a comprehensive service to your clients that other pest managers cannot offer them. It requires policy holders to follow your inspection recommendations and can result in significant premium discounts.
Once you have installed a treatment, your clients can purchase a TimberSecure Termite Insurance policy giving them the peace of mind of knowing that their home is protected against attack from termites.
The policy allows for a range of treatment options and property types. In certain circumstances it can even apply to systems installed years earlier. All inspections and treatments must comply with Australian Standard 3660 Termite Management.
It covers the home owner with up to $100,000 for timber replacement if termite damage occurs. For a single policy payment of $420 (inclusive of all government charges) the homeowner is covered for 5 years.
During the 5 year policy period the homeowner must have the recommended termite inspections carried out. These inspections are organised between yourself and your client. The insurance policy is between your client and Pacific International. You don't have to worry about completing extra termite or insurance paperwork.
A brochure to give to your clients is available for download or you can order hard copies from our online store.
