PASSENGER VEHICLES IN BRITISH COLUMBIA
Drivers in British Columbia are required to purchase basic insurance with the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC), but they still have options for additional coverage through a private insurer. If you own a passenger vehicle for personal use or business purposes, Johnston Meier Insurance can provide optional coverage to protect you in situations that involve theft, a fire, an automotive crash, or a lawsuit. Even a cracked windshield is a good reason for additional insurance, so glass repairs or replacement don’t drain your bank account. With optional coverage, you get peace of mind as you drive the streets and highways of British Columbia. As a reputable insurance provider in the province, we’ll gladly work with you to determine the coverage options you need to protect your vehicle, passengers, and yourself. We’re proud of our history serving Canadian drivers and safeguarding their automotive investment and daily commutes. Our clients avoid financial loss because of an accident or stray rock with insurance options that surpass the basic coverage ICBC provides. Contact us today and let us help you select coverage options that fit your driving needs and concerns.
Your Benefits as an Insured Driver
Passenger vehicles can encounter all sorts of hazardous situations while driving the BC roads and highways. Even responsible drivers are susceptible to poor visibility from rain, snow, or fog, slick and icy roads, stones kicked up from a passing commercial truck, and the reckless driving of intoxicated or irresponsible drivers. Even parking on the street or under a tree before a storm poses a risk to your car. Having private insurance can cover the costs associated with damage and injury from any of these causes, whether you’re responsible or another party is at fault. With additional insurance from Johnston Meier Insurance, you can rest easy knowing that our benefits have you covered during your personal or business-related driving. Our network of insurance agencies is available to provide various coverage options to supplement those you already get with your basic insurance with ICBC. We will help you enhance your protection with any of the following beneficial options:
- Excess third-party liability that financially extends well beyond ICBC basic coverage
- Collision insurance to cover the costs related to a vehicular accident
- Comprehensive coverage to protect your investment when dealing with fire, vandalism, theft, glass breakage, or loss
- Accident forgiveness so that your rates don’t skyrocket from a single incident
- Concierge service to serve your automotive needs
- Gap protection to cover the cost difference in a replacement vehicle when your current automobile gets stolen, lost, or totaled
- Excess underinsured motorist protection to cover the expenses incurred in an accident with an underinsured driver
- And many other insurance benefit options
We’re Available for ICBC Renewals
Maintaining your ICBC basic insurance coverage is essential to safely and legally drive in the province and Canada. Johnston Meier Insurance wants to make sure you stay current on your coverage by offering ICBC renewals. We’ll discuss your current coverage and work with our network of insurance providers to find you the best additional coverage, but ICBC’s basic coverage is a mandatory part of protecting your vehicle, passengers, and other drivers. Don’t let your ICBC coverage lapse and leave you exposed to legal consequences. Our team will keep you responsibly covered by helping you renew your ICBC insurance. It’s part of our commitment to keeping passenger vehicle drivers safe and legitimate on the road.
