Our Journey

From Lismore to Bundaberg, making insurance awesome

Since 2015, Avid Insurance Brokers has been shaking things up in Lismore, NSW, offering personalized advice for insurance needs. We’re all about people and providing the best protection. We joined forces with PSC Connect in 2017, giving us serious buying power. COVID-19 brought changes, but we rocked remote work and fell in love with it. Our team grew in 2021, and we’re pumped about opening a second office in Bundaberg, QLD.

We cover clients in Northern NSW, North QLD, and beyond, and even offer a mobile service for convenience.
