Insurance Brokers Hobart

Business insurance advice and quotes at your fingertips.

Hobart is the capital and most populous city of the Australian island state of Tasmania, and contributes significantly to the nation’s economy. The economy of Hobart itself is heavily reliant on the sea and it is the home-port for the Antarctic activities of both Australia and France. The city also supports many other industries such as manufacturing, construction and tourism.

Hobart is home to over 200,000 people, over 6,000 businesses, and is considered to be the financial and administrative heart of Tasmania. Hobart based businesses not only support the Australian economy as a whole but also the local community that they operate in by providing employment opportunities and consuming locally produced goods. These businesses should be protected.

Our Insurance Brokers can help your business survive the unexpected, with minimum losses.

What Are the Specific Risks Faced By Hobart Businesses?


Hobart’s proximity to the Antarctic means it has become an ‘Antarctic Gateway’ city. It is the homeport for the Australian and French Antarctic programs, and loads around 2,000 tonnes of Antarctic cargo a year.

Businesses involved in the loading, transportation and unloading of goods, on both a national and/or international scale, are exposed to a varied set of risks that are unique to the nature of the work. Hazards common to this sector include theft, staff injury, vehicle collision, issues with load securing and fire. Operating in the import / export industry, it’s important that your assets are fully covered with an appropriate insurance policy. PSC Direct Insurance Brokers Hobart specialise in sourcing appropriate policies in order to ensure you are fully covered.


Hobart is a hub for cruise ships during the summer months, docking up to 40 ships during the course of the season. Visitors by sea and by air come to the city to explore its historic inner suburbs, try the acclaimed restaurants and cafes, and experience the music and nightlife culture.

Businesses operating within the tourism sector contribute significantly to the economy of the state. These businesses are exposed to certain risks, and managers and business owners often have to deal with a wide array of human behaviour. At PSC Direct, we have insured several hospitality businesses, and know the specific types of cover that you are likely to need in this industry.


Hobart is home to several cultural events each year. Constitution Dock is the arrival point for Yachts after they have completed the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, which is celebrated as part of the Hobart Summer Festival. The city is also the finishing point of the Targa Tasmania rally car event, which is held annually. Other events include the Tulip Festival at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens and the Australian Wooden Boat Festival.

It’s important that those responsible for holding or coordinating these events are fully protected in case something goes wrong. PSC Direct can ensure that businesses involved in these events, and their attendees, are covered if the worst happens.
