Bike Friendly Ontario Insurance People [2008 edition!]

Last Updates:
  • Jan 04/2008 - Started new thread for 2008!
  • Jan 16/2008 - Verified contact updates.
Preamble: This list was started in 2002 when I got into the bike scene. Everyone had their own person to call, and no one shared their list and therefore didn't know who to contact to get a better rate. I believe this is the most complete list for southern ontario insurance companies at the time. Enjoy. For updates, reply to the thread or send a private message.

*** WARNING: Insurance fraud is common!
Don't be an idiot: Don't give up your hard earned cash to someone without knowing if they're legitimate. ALL BROKERS HAVE AN OFFICE - DON'T MEET THEM IN A PARKING LOT AND PAY CASH! If you're dealing with a broker, make sure they are legit by searching RIBO (Registered Insurance Brokers of Ontario) list by clicking the following link: http://www.ribo.com/co_license.cfm (I've also been informed by a few brokers that they'll have some kind of plaque saying they're valid members)

Online Quotes: All online quote systems are inaccurate, and just don't work for bikes - Don't waste your time with them. Call the company direct - it'll be faster and less headaches for you.

General notes about the list below:
- "License restrictions" usually means they won't insure you if you haven't had your license for a few years.
- "Bike restrictions" - if you're looking at a highend sport bike, they might not cover it.
- "Area restrictions" - They only do certain areas of Southern Ontario.

-- Insurance Companies that deal direct (ie: not through brokers)

-- Insurance Brokers
Brokers can go to many insurance companies to find the best deal for you - although some don't deal with all the insurance companies, so sometimes you need to contact a few brokers. Also, insurance companies can deal direct or via Agents.
