I had an experience a while ago with the last lady that managed my account. Any other agent I had spoken to about high rates had a canned response that "everything goes up". Your agent called me back and explained the pricing for boat, house, auto and quad. Some of the rates had gone down and your company had shopped around in some cases for better rates. When she was done I had a thorough understanding of my policy pricing and understood some options to reduce those premiums.

How to Renovate Successfully

Many of us have heard a horror story about a home renovation gone wrong.

Here are some tips to help ensure your reno project is completed successfully.

  • Get referrals from your friends and the contractors you are considering hiring.
  • Use established contractors with a physical location (address), who have been in business for many years under the same name.
  • Do a legal check to ensure the contractors are licensed in Ontario and insured in case of injury during the project.
  • Contact us for advice about whether the renovations will require an adjustment to your home insurance policy.
  • Ask your renovator if they are registered with WSIB and ask for their registration number.
  • Ask your renovator if they have liability insurance and ask for a copy of their policy summary.
  • Ask your renovator if they are a member of a trade association like Renovator’s Council or SAWDAC.
  • Make sure you get a written contract with all components of the job clearly defined.
