For many years Shane Tibbs & Associates operated as insurance agents for Suncorp and the former SGIO in Cairns. Originally, all general insurance for Suncorp was done through Agents. Over the years, Suncorp developed branch networks and call centres as another way customers could conduct business. Premiums and cover however, were always the same regardless of which system customers used.
In 2010 Suncorp decided to withdraw all business insurance choosing to focus mainly on home and car insurance. They also decided to discontinue with its local agents channel, preferring to conduct business via the Branch network, Internet or Call Centres.
We then moved our General Insurance to the Broker model, allowing us to provide a much broader choice of insurance options for clients.
