Business Insurance FAQ

Business Insurance policies vary considerably, mainly between Insurers seeking to provide an advantage over another competitors package, or to suit different types of occupations or industries. This of course can influence greatly the price too.

It is an Insurance Broker's duty to find you the best cover at the best price, but this is not always clear cut. It is best therefore to prioritise your requirements for the coverage you desire the most balanced against not just price, but also claims service reputation.

Make sure your Insurance Broker discusses your needs for the insurance based on all the risks you can identify that your business simply could not carry on its own.

On this page we discuss many of the sections of a Business Insurance policy that are vital and will vary between insurers. Remember, at CPR we here to help you with this process, because CPR Insurance are experts that will save you!

Robert Cooper - one of 100 faces of small business

This week it was announced as part of Small Business Week,  that Robert has been named one of the 100 faces of small business for a State Government promotion on the great value that small businesses play in the State of Queensland.

You can see Robert's entry here:

It is the third accolade for CPR Insurance Services in a month and after seven and a half years in business is a real pep up for the company.

For Robert, it is the culmination of many years experience, becoming well qualified, experiencing the highs and lows of a career and always wanting to contribute to his community. Sometimes, these things just come together and you receive recognition for your efforts.

Robert says that there is no doubt that starting your own business is a huge challenge, but with the right research and planning, the right people around you and a good set of values that you apply to the vision of the company, you have a very good chance of making it all succeed.

Robert says he is lucky. He has a strong supportive Wife, Mandy, who is also part of the business, along with efficient and hard working staff such as Julia McLauchlan and Aidan Harmer who are building up their own skills in a learning environment. 

However, the most important and most supportive people for CPR Insurance Services are our clients who have stuck by us and supported us over the past seven years. Our focus remains on providing the best possible service we can and always acting in their best interests. To all our clients, we say thank you!
