    Testimonials

    Coolum Coaches & Stradbroke Island Buses appointed Matt Calder from Insurance Advisernet as our insurance broker over 4 years ago to manage our entire insurance program. Over this period we have been very happy with the way in which Matt has negotiated our insurance renewal with various insurers year on year to obtain the best solution at the most competitive price. Matt is highly professional and very thorough. He takes the time to understand our business and any changes. We also enjoy good old fashion “hands on” service which is very prompt. Claims service is also very important to us running a large Bus fleet and Matt is very pro-active and provides excellent claims assistance from start to finish, he really goes that extra mile. We highly recommend Matt and his team.
    Peter Jones
    General Manager, Coolum Coaches Pty Ltd
    Matt Calder was recommend to us upon commencement of our business four years ago and he made an immediate impact with his refreshing level of customer service, his attention to detail and substantial savings provided. Since then we have been very fortunate to experience intense growth and Matt has become an integral business partner and has continued to provide exceptional service and support. I highly recommend his services.
    Grant Chugg
    Director, Chugg Rental Holdings Pty Ltd
    Initially we engaged Matt to review our business insurances and he quickly responded with a report on what we were covered for and what we were not, plus he also provided an alternative solution with another insurer which saved us a considerable amount of premium. After a great result on the business insurance Matt and Nicole were also able to assist us with all our domestic and home and contents insurance. They really are the one stop shop for everything insurance and it’s fantastic to just deal with the one broker on all our insurance. Over the last 3 years we have been unfortunate to have suffered a few large claims and Matt and Nicole provided the utmost support, valuable advice and worked with the insurers to get the best possible outcomes for us.
