Barrenjoey insurance Brokers have been our brokers for 40 years. I cannot recommend them more highly.
From the beginning they understood our business and our complex insurance needs. They recommended policies as diverse as ISR, Motor Vehicle, Farm, travel and even residential that provided the cover we needed. Often providing us information on policies that we were not even aware of but which provided cover and protection for our business which subsequently proved necessary.
Most of all they are proactive in seeking out quotes from different insurers and ensuring that we get the cover we require for the cheapest premium. Over the years we have been approached by many other brokers and insurance companies to quote on our insurance. While some have come close none have ever been cheaper and none have offered the convenience, personal service and dedication that we get from the Barrenjoey insurance team.

As a small business owner I can not recommend Barrenjoey Insurance Brokers more highly. We used to arrange insurance directly with providers for our business however noticed premiums creeping up. Nobody likes having to fill in paper work and seek quotes however we all know insurance is important.
Barrenjoey Insurance Brokers make ALL these tasks very simple and the response to any questions is always prompt and informative. We had never needed to claim on insurance in 7 years of business and then we have had run of bad luck and claimed three times in the last three years.
The claim process through Barrenjoey Insurance Brokers has been amazingly easy with reimbursement of costs in our account within 14 days. I strongly recommend you give them the opportunity to manage your insurance needs. They will ask you the right questions to ensure you are covered correctly and if in the unfortunate case you need to make a claim it will be one of the easiest jobs in your busy schedule.
Barrenjoey have been an integral part of our business for many years, they have helped us grow in both our national and international markets, their communication and knowledge in their industry, more than exceeds expectations, above all their friendly service always makes any question, claim, enquiry easy to understand with minimal stress to any situation – we look forward to the next 10 years of service. - David Astone
We've used Barrenjoey Insurance Brokers for many, many years, and would not consider using anyone else. They make it simple to get the right level of cover. They answer questions extremely promptly and make any claim process so simple. Thank you, BJI! - Rob Newcombe
I have known and been a loyal client of Barrenjoey Insurance Brokers for over 25 years.
My loyalty to the brokerage stems from the professional service and advice I have received on an ongoing basis from all directors and members of staff.
Like many, I find general insurance a facet of life best left to the professionals always seeking security when considering cover and a competitive price for the right policy.
Barrenjoey Insurance Brokers has recommended numerous commercial and domestic insurance policies to me in my 25 years, all of which have been supported by their unreserved assistance when I have needed to make a claim.
As a Barrister of Law, an elected Councillor on my local council and a long time resident of the Northern Beaches I have no hesitation in recommending Barrenjoey Insurance Brokers to assist with any business or domestic general insurance needs.
If some of the more popular buzzwords of the past two years were “flexible work” and “hybrid business”, 2022’s might be more along the lines of consistency and continuity.

It’s now two years since the COVID-19 virus appeared and we’ve now got some solid trend data about its impact on accidents and insurance claims.
There’s been an increase in workers’ compensation and business interruption claims as well as catastrophe insurance, but a dip in general insurance claims. That’s partly due to government-imposed lockdowns, physical distancing, economic uncertainty and disruption to our lifestyles.Read More
