Insurance

Dawsons take every precaution to ensure that your goods are safe and secure, but we cannot guarantee that an unforeseen matter beyond our control will not happen.

Dawson, as an authorised representative of a licenced insurance broker, can help you arrange insurance whilst in transit and storage. Dawson holds a customer goods in transit and storage insurance policy. Should you decide that the insurance meets your needs, Dawson can arrange this policy for you. If you ask us to arrange insurance for you, we will give you a product disclosure statement ( PDS ) which describes the main features of the policy. You should read this PDS to decide if the policy meets your needs, objectives and financial situation and make and make an objective decision based on your assessment.
