GN Olsson Mastercraftsmen Business, Home and Contents & Vehicle Insurance Claim Quotes and Estimates – Interiors, Joinery, Furniture, Antique, Collectable, Art – Brisbane, Gold Coast & Sunshine Coast

GN Olsson Mastercraftsmen are happy to assist you to navigate the insurance claim process and impart decades of knowledge and experience about the process.   We are proud to say that since we started doing insurance work in 1987 we have worked on claims through a great multitude of insurance companies, brokers and assessors, with a 100% satisfaction rate.

Never the cheapest estimate, we are instead renown for our high quality workmanship, and we ensure inconvenience to the insured is minimised.

There is a huge range of skills and experience we can draw on for a wide range of your valued items which will benefit from our care and attention.  Just ask, and we can soon inform you how we may assist.   Established in 1983, GN Olsson Mastercraftsmen are renown locally and nationally as repair and restoration specialists, or in the worst case scenario, if it is beyond repair, we can match and hand craft reproduction replicas of most items. As Mastercraftsmen we are accredited Antique Restorers (AAADA) and Antique Conservators (AICCM), and fully qualified in both Cabinetmaking and Joinery (MBQ).  Gary learned his trade making premium quality furniture at the renown Brisbane furniture makers, Harvey Bros.  Gary has woodcarving, blacksmithing and steam engine qualifications also.

To keep costs down and to expedite your claim, we invite you to send a photo of each item, that fills the photo and then send additional close up photos if you feel it unlikely Gary would be able to see the problem from the first photo.  If you think it will be helpful, include a brief typed description for Gary.  Provide your phone number so Gary can discuss matters with you, if necessary.  You will be welcomed to proactively ask Gary questions about his workmanship for your particular commission.  On the written estimate we can include insurance claim references and any insurance company and personal contact information.  We explain in the estimate how we will do the repair and often can give an idea of what to expect upon completion of the repair.

We work on materials including – timber, veneer, inlay, glass, metal, porcelain, leather, textiles, marble and stone.

Items we can assist with are too wide ranging to mention here, so have a look at our website.  Joinery, furniture, displays, clocks, boxes, frames, gramophones, musical instruments, artefacts, art, photographs, portraits, jewellery and more!
