Pickering Auto Insurance

After an accident is not the time to learn what isn’t covered by your car insurance policy. With as many as 400,000 accidents happening in Ontario each year it is easy to understand the benefits of taking just a few moments to talk to a professional when purchasing auto insurance. We'll help you avoid a great deal of frustration down the road, better yet, we'll likely save you some money in the process. 

The licensed insurance brokers at First Durham Insurance & Financial Ltd. in Pickering, ON are the experts when it comes to finding the best Auto Insurance in the Durham Region. We will show you all of your options, recommend the right limits and make sure you are receiving all of the discounts you are entitled to.

What Determines Your Auto Insurance Premium?

The pricing of an Automobile Insurance policy is fairly complicated but understanding the things that you’re in control of is simple.  Yes, it is true that safer drivers with fewer claims and/or convictions pay less, but there's more to it than that.  The kind of car you drive can also have a significant impact on your rates. We find it is cheaper to insure domestic over imported vehicles, trucks are often better.  There are other things that are not necessarily in your control; where you live, how your neighbours drive, or the instances of crime in your neighborhood, all of these can have a significant impact on the price you pay for car insurance.  Thankfully the experts at First Durham Insurance have a good handle on the Pickering Car Insurance Market and are available to help find coverage for you.

Customized Protection

Perfect Fit

If all car insurance policies in Ontario are the same, why do so many claims experiences differ? Like anything in life, it's all about execution. Unfortunately there are carriers out there who are quick to collect your premiums but are not so great at paying claims. On the other hand, some carriers are great at paying claims and try to help make the most out of a bad experience. As insurance brokers, we know who the good companies are and who you might want to avoid. Do you know how your current carrier measures up? Call us or get a quote today!

As Your Life Evolves, So Should Your Coverage

Life changes, is your current coverage keeping up? When we buy our first car, it gives us such a feeling of freedom. Of course for most of us, we bought a used vehicle that was affordable and purchased a basic policy that covered the basic necessities. Later on as you start to earn more money, various life scenarios arise - you upgrade your vehicle(s), you have children, grown children leave the house, dependent parents now live with you, or maybe you travel and spend 6 months in Florida. Has anyone told you that in all of these situations that your policy options look different? How has your policy evolved with your needs over the years? Maybe you're dealing with the wrong insurance company. Call us or get a quote today!
