Am I covered for items stolen from my vehicle?

Clients are often confused about how this is handled. If the items stolen are permanently attached to your vehicle, for example the stereo system, then it is covered under your auto policy. However if an item like your briefcase, purse or sports equipment is stolen, then you would claim that under your personal property policy (i.e. home or tenant insurance). Limits and deductibles apply so please call us to discuss.

If my car is in storage, do I still need insurance?

Even if you aren’t driving your vehicle and you have put it into storage, you will want to make sure your car remains protected against things like fire, theft and vandalism. Some companies will also require that your accident benefits coverage remain in force. Our licensed brokers will be happy to talk about options that are available to you.

Do I need to inform Advocate if I start driving for a ride sharing program such as Uber?

Yes. How you use your vehicle has an impact on your insurance. Your insurance company will want to know if you use your vehicle for a ride sharing program. Although Uber now has their own fleet policy in place for their employees, some insurance companies have different requirements if you are driving for Uber. It’s always best to check. Let us know if you’d like to discuss how the insurance companies that we work with, handle ride sharing vehicles.

My son/daughter just started driving, do I need to inform Advocate?

G1: As a G1 licensed driver, you are not required to be listed on the auto insurance policy as a driver and there is no premium associated with a G1 driver. However, we always ask that you contact us to advise of newly licensed drivers in the household so we can document your policy accordingly.

G2: You need to contact our office when your child obtains their G2 license. At this point, they are required to be listed as an operator on your policy. Please be sure to obtain a copy of their Driver History Report from Service Ontario if they have completed an approved Driver Training Course. This is required in order to apply for a Driver Training discount on your premium.

G: Please contact our office when you child obtains their full G license so your insurance record can be updated.

How do I know what auto insurance coverage I need?

Although the Ontario Automobile Policy is a standard policy that is regulated by the government, it is still a very complex product. There are many optional benefits that are available based on your own personal needs. Always work with a licensed insurance broker who will take the time to discuss your options with you and help you make informed decisions.
