Unveiling Technical Assessing's Expertise in Loss Adjustment Services

In the dynamic landscape of loss adjustment services, Technical Assessing stands as a stalwart. Established in 1986, we have evolved into Australia's largest national, independent, locally-owned loss adjuster. Our professionalism and solution-focused commitment have positioned us as a key provider for resolving complex, technical, and large losses.

The Heart of Our Success: People-Centric Approach

At Technical Assessing, we don't just talk about our people; we prioritise them. We believe talent chooses us, resulting in the industry's best and brightest joining our ranks. Our hiring philosophy goes beyond skill sets; it's about assembling a team dedicated to delivering professional results consistently.

In fact, we like to think Technical Assessing is chosen by our people first before our clients choose us. Talent is unevenly distributed in this industry. We take the quality of our company very seriously and believe that talent chooses us.

Skytech TA: Elevating Precision with Drones

Introducing Skytech TA, our specialist division in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or Drones. Drones redefine the landscape of claims assessment, providing unparalleled accuracy and accessibility. Skytech, the only in-house drone operator in any loss adjuster in Australia, ensures superior imagery and footage without disturbing the scene.

Drones give easy access to risky or difficult-to-access sites and are very beneficial when large areas need to be covered in a short amount of time.

Navigating the Complexity: Specialised Services

Tailored Solutions for Varied Risks

Our services include Property, Business Interruption, Public & Products Liability, Professional Indemnity, Construction & Engineering, Marine & Aviation, Plant & Machinery, Specialist Services, and Building Consultancy. We pride ourselves on being the go-to company for large and complex losses, serving both local and international clients.

Corporate Structure & Governance: A Pillar of Stability

Technical Assessing Group, led by managing director David Cambridge, comprises holding and area-specific subsidiaries across major Australian cities. The executive buyout in 2020, along with the introduction of an employee share scheme in 2022, reflects our commitment to a stable workforce and rewarding loyalty.

Our Corporate Structure & Governance

Technical Assessing Group comprises the holding company, Technical Assessing Holdings Pty Ltd, and area-specific subsidiaries:

  • Sydney: Technical Assessing (NSW) Pty Ltd
  • Brisbane: Technical Assessing (QLD) Pty Ltd

  • Perth: Technical Assessing (WA) Pty Ltd
