Even 40 years on, that standard of leadership and participation in the Brisbane business and insurance community remains today. Day to day, TBIB works with local business organisations and interest groups, charities and not-for-profits, industry peak bodies and a myriad of local businesses right through to the Queensland Council of Insurance Brokers.  TBIB maintains a close commitment to local business and the insurance community.

Today TBIB is driven by a broad team of competent, qualified and motivated people, supported by state of the art systems.  This means that we have everything necessary to attend to our clients needs, cover, claims and security – whether they be an individual or a corporation.

We actively engage with cutting edge training, systems, insurers and facilities that enable us move with a marketplace that is racing towards the future. At the same time, we provide the best care available to clients who have been with us for decades.

Founded in 1979 by Tony Bemrose (whose general insurance career began in 1958), Tony Bemrose Insurance Brokers (TBIB) in Brisbanes, Fortitude Valley quickly developed a reputation for looking after all clients with care, tenacity and ability to place the hardest of insurance risks.

Over the course of the next forty years TBIB has developed into a very well respected business oriented insurance brokerage.

 Our Values

We place the highest value on expertise, service and advice to all of our clients. It’s our highest priority and our clients share this value with us – especially those clients who have had to claim on their insurance.

Many of our clients run businesses, and even if they don’t, getting the right price is extremely important.  We will always strive to get our clients the best price possible for the cover – but if a client has to pay a bit more than they were expecting, they will know exactly why.

We will never put a quick sale before doing the right thing and we will always,  ALWAYS, be there for our clients when they need us.

Client Stories

Stephen Harris

Universal Store Pty Ltd

Since the establishment of our business in 1999, Tony Bemrose Insurance Brokers has managed our insurance needs in a friendly and professional manner.

I appreciate their effort to go beyond normal order taking by providing a specialised and personal service. Nothing is too much trouble for the team at TBIB. They help take the mystery out of insurance by extending excellent advice, service, and support to us.

I have no hesitation in recommending their services and look forward to continuing a long and prosperous association.

David Brown

Superb Party Hire

We have been clients of TBIB for over a decade. In the few instances we have needed to make a claim, Sean, and his staff have been more than helpful. We now put all of our business and personal insurance through TBIB. We couldn’t be happier with the service.

Tony Schutt

Arrabury Pastoral Company Pty Ltd

Thank you, Sean, and staff for the professional way you have looked after our insurance needs and the ability to get the best results for our business

Claire Gobe

Nomad Sport Fishing

Nomad Sportfishing Adventures has been dealing with Sean Bemrose and the TBIB team for over 7 years now and I recommend TBIB to anyone who’ll listen. Due to the diverse nature of our business, we have a unique and often challenging set of insurance requirements, and yet no matter what we throw at TBIB they are always able to find us a policy that fits our requirements and doesn’t break the budget.

Current policies that TBIB have helped us implement include public liability insurance for our various charter activities, physical and liability insurance for boats, offices and storage sheds and business insurance for charter sales and worldwide tackle distribution.

Above all, the thing that impresses me most about TBIB is the company’s commitment to service and the strong representation of their clients. We have a very bad habit of asking difficult questions at short notice and TBIB is always able to accommodate us. We also recently had a situation where Sean had to act as an intermediary for us with an insurance company and we felt totally confident that he had our best interests in mind throughout the difficult negotiations. We ended up with a favourable outcome and I am 100% certain that Sean’s representation of our company was the key factor in this.

Charles Apostolos

Apostolos Trust

With over 20 years of service to the Apostolos Family, we have found Sean, Tony and the staff at Bemrose Insurance Brokers, to be the utmost Professionals when it came to advice, claims management and their professionalism in dealing on all levels.

I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Craig Rigby

Car & Commercial Wholesale Pty Ltd

My association with TBIB began 20 years ago. I feel I have been extremely fortunate to have the expertise of this company in handling my insurance needs.

It is a well worn cliché that we are all too busy to concern ourselves with items not directly involved with our own businesses, from my own point of view, I have been well served by TBIB with their up to date advice, professional service, and no-hassle claims management.

I recommend them highly.

Anthony Elliot

Elliot Australia

TBIB has been managing our insurance programme since 1991. In this time we have always been provided with the highest quality advice and professional service by the staff at TBIB. When we have had claims they have been promptly managed and without fuss. Over the years I have enjoyed developing a very strong business relationship with Tony and Sean and the TBIB staff and value their dedication in guiding me in the insurance decision-making process. I trust TBIB to protect our business and our personal assets and to deliver excellent insurance coverage.

I am pleased to recommend their services.
