    Testimonials

    I was very impressed with Russell Coutts from Insurance Advisernet when asked to quote the Public Liability insurance cover for our two swim centres. His quote was not only $500 lower than our previous provider but he also included $1,000,000 Management Liability cover, something we had not considered in the past but in this over cautious world it helped us accept his proposal. We will be seeking his quotes when our other insurance fall due.
    Peter McMahon
    OAM, Director, McMahons Swim Factory
    Most swim school operators will agree that navigating insurance options can be frustrating and confusing, and often we just stick with what we have always done, even though we know there might be better options out there. I approached Russell from Insurance Advisernet, and was pleasantly surprised with the attention to detail and understanding of our business needs from a risk and insurance perspective. We were matched with the best product to suits our needs and budget, but provides us with peace of mind. Russell’s communication is excellent, offering good old fashioned service. I have no hesitation in recommending Russell and his team to anyone who is tired of just plain old average and wants an insurer that goes the extra mile.
