LMI Opens Tasmanian Office #insurance

Cutting A Red RibbonI am pleased to announce the opening of our first office in Tasmanian today with the opening of an office in Hobart today.

The office will be managed by Gary Price, a highly qualified Chartered Loss Adjuster with over 30 years experience.

I and the leadership team at LMI have been keen to provide our claims and sum insured review services in Tasmania, in addition to our eServices, but it is important that we had the right staff in place. With Gary – we certainly have that.

I will be travelling to Launceston this afternoon and will be introducing Gary to brokers in town today and tomorrow.

Map Of TasmaniaThe new Hobart office will service all of Tasmania but, as with all our offices, will be able to draw on the services of LMI’s Legal, Forensic Accounting, Mining, Engineering, IT and Risk Management teams to support them as and when required.

One of the things that we will be doing in conjunction with the opening of this new office, will be pushing the Tasmanian Government to remove Fire Services Levy on insurance.

With the opening of the Gold Coast office earlier this month, LMI have now actioned half their plan with Canberra and Coffs Harbour offices to come before year end.

LMI has had long standing offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Illawarra, and the Mornington Peninsula, as well as Auckland New Zealand, and Singapore.

    Hi Anne,

    Sorry for the delay in replying but I have been on the road and this is the first day in my office.

    I use 10% as a minimum starting point and then consider the following.

    1. Location – inner city, congested, long distance to tips?
    2. Asbestos. – how much involved?
    3. Dangerous / toxic contents – remember the cocktail that a fire creates with heat and extinguishment water.
    4. Uninsured tenants – is the Insured likely to be stuck with removing their stuff as well.
    5. Is declared value /adequate. No use using 10% if the building is half insured as this means the sub-limit is half ie.5% of the value at risk.

    I hope this helps.
