Q1. How can I save money on my policy?
The best way to save money on your policies is to bundle or package your Automobile and Property Insurance together. Most carriers apply Package Discounts when you carry both lines of Insurance with them.
Q2. How important is a replacement vehicle?
This insurance covers you in case of an accident when your vehicle is out of commission. It also covers you when you rent a vehicle while on holidays, as well as emergency service expenses such as towing and boosting.
Q3. What should I do before leaving for a weekend getaway or extended holiday?
Please take the necessary precautions to ensure a happy return. Have someone you trust come by and open or close curtains, pick up junk mail, and maybe turn on and off a light or two. Discontinue delivery of the newspaper and mail. Put up a “NO flyers” sign on your mailbox.
Q4. Who is covered under my policy, to drive my vehicle?
Any licensed operator living in your household, is required to be listed on your policy to be able to drive your vehicle.

Claims are paid and charged accordingly from the policy that insures the vehicle, no matter who was operating the vehicle at the time.
