Tecumseh Auto Insurance
Car Insurance Details
We have many different coverage options from which you can choose. While you must, of course, meet the minimum insurance requirements as specified by Ontario, here are some of the additional coverage options we can add to your Tecumseh auto insurance policy:
- Agreed value
- Full glass
- Towing and labor
- Worldwide liability
- Electronic equipment
- Underinsured and uninsured
- Replacement cost for your vehicle or classic car
If you’re not sure what type of coverage you need or even want, don’t worry. We’ll be happy to chat with you about the benefits and costs of each coverage option. Your deductibles and liability limits will depend on how your chosen policy is configured.
In Ontario, driving without insurance or proof of insurance comes with some pretty severe consequences. These may include:
- A base fine of $5,000, plus an added 20% tax
- Charges of operating a vehicle without the required insurance coverage or failing to provide proof of insurance coverage
- Jail time
Generally, jail time is only reserved for repeat offenders. But you are almost guaranteed to receive a fine if you fail to provide proof of insurance when pulled over. Fortunately, Ontario has made it easier for drivers to show proof of insurance by making it permissible to show an electronic copy of your policy. That means you don’t have to carry a paper copy of your policy in your vehicle, as long as you can show proof of insurance on your phone or other mobile device.
This change is very convenient for drivers, but it doesn’t come without the potential for problems. For example, if you’re ever caught in an area without cell phone service, you may not be able to access your policy from your email. To avoid issues like this, download your policy onto your phone or take a picture of it in advance so you can access it whether you have cell phone service or not.
