Who are Barley Insurances?

We have been in operation since 1998 and during that time become recognised in the industry as a fiercely independent insurance broking house with a reputation of being a strong advocate of the interests and welfare of our clients.


Our clients range from owners of 4x4 vehicles and classic cars to businesses with staff of up to 120. We handle a wide range of businesses including the trades, heavy industry, charitable organisations, manufacturers and many entities that are household names.


We are independent and have some specific niche products.  We seek to work with clients to understand:

  • their business
  • their markets
  • the challenges that they have in the running of their enterprise on a day to day basis


It’s just not about providing insurance products. It’s the whole package and that includes ensuring that:

  • you understand the cover that is being purchased
  • you see value for money through the additional value added services we can provide through our wider services with RiteTrack
  • we work on your behalf to ensure that claims presented are settled as quickly as possible and for the right outcomes.


Where are we?

Although our office is based in New Lynn, Auckland we have clients from Kaitaia down to Invercargill and regularly visit customers around the country.


We are active on social media, often using video to provide information on specialist subjects to our clients. Distance doesn’t prevent us from dealing with clients wherever they may be - we are just at the end of your phone, email or internet connection.


How do we operate?

We believe that our point of difference is our values and we like to work with and have clients who have similar values - honesty, integrity, hard work, and empathy.
