insurance hotline



is it real/true, i found a quote a lot lower than what my broker gave me, like 700 less but u have to pay $8.50 to get the name of the company. Is it bogus or are they for real and do those quotes really exist? if they said i could be paying 2995 is that true? My insurance broker quoted me 3755... Thanks

my buddy used one, paid the 2995, then called the broker they provided, and the broker said they weren't taking on anymore clients.

That's when you sit in front of canada411.com and call everysingle broker in the city Very Time consuming but at least you'll know every single price that's out there...

It took me about 3 weeks to find a right place with a good rate and a good reputation...

i've paid the 8.50 and got some names...called them, and ALL said they wouldnt insure under-25-yr olds. Just go through the phone book or friend's referrals. Try johnson's insurance! I keep telling people this haha. I got a really good rate with them.

my broker is always looking for cheaper insurance for me, but he doesn't charge me anything, he found me a good company that also offers Facility insurance, I was paying $6500 for liability only, this new place he found for me is only charging $3600 for liability only, the insurance company is called Pafco if anyone is interested

johnson won't insure under 25 unless you're with a group, like teachers of ontario.
