A New & Convenient Way for Contractors to Get Liability Insurance

Victoria, BC— Trade Guard — Today SeaFirst Insurance Brokers announced the launch of Trade Guard, an online insurance source which enables experienced contractors and tradespeople to obtain liability insurance in an easy and convenient way right from their smartphone, tablet or computer. The insurance package includes general Third Party Liability coverage, with options to purchase additional coverage for tools, equipment, building materials, and/or office contents. This is the first self-serve product for small contractors available in Canada.

“Most contractors are busy on job sites during the daytime and struggle to make it to their insurance broker to purchase, make changes, or obtain proof of coverage. With Trade Guard, they can do all of these things on their schedule rather than working around their broker’s schedule.  Not only is Trade Guard simple to use but it is very competitively priced with many customers saving a considerable amount on their business coverage.” said Dan Olive, Partner and Commercial Broker at SeaFirst Insurance Brokers.

Trade Guard is an online insurance solution for small contractors who work primarily on residential properties in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, or Manitoba. Customers are able to obtain a quote, purchase coverage, and view their policy directly from the website: www.tradeguard.ca. Once the customer has purchased coverage, they can access their policy information at any time to make real-time changes, upgrade their coverage, and request proof of insurance. Having the ability to instantaneously show proof of insurance on a job site is very beneficial for most contractors. The renewal process is just as easy; customers are e-mailed instructions on how to renew their policy online, or they can simply let their coverage lapse if they no longer need it.

SeaFirst Insurance Brokers has been providing their clients with the finest in general insurance services for over 40 years in the Saanich Peninsula and Victoria communities. They are the largest independent general insurance brokerage on the Saanich Peninsula, with offices in Brentwood Bay, Saanichton, Sidney, Salt Spring Island, Pender Island, Oak Bay, and the Westshore.
