Default Alberta Insurance

Hey guys, I'm moving to Calgary in a few weeks for a new job. Anyways, I was looking at the car insurance quotes and I seemed to get numbers like 6000 or 7000 a year which is about double what I pay in BC. Anyone know of any good car insurance places or anything? There's not much info online.

Thanks!

If you belong to a professional association, look into insurance with Meloche Monnex. I pay just over $1200 a year for an STi, which I use to go to work. I would pay less than $1100 if it was just a "pleasure" vehicle.

I was with State farm and they wanted $2300 for the same coverage, and I have been an accident free client with State farm since 1992. Bye Bye State Farm. what can I say, I'm fickle.

My God, man! $ 6-7k

You must have an abstract 5 pages long to get into that territory!

I'm paying $1200 for full coverage through Wawanesa.

Lots of people have gotten great rates through Meloche Monnex.

Ya if you have a degree in something Meloche Monnex is the way to go. Currently I'm paying $2200 full coverage on an 05 WRX with one accident (my fault) still on my insurance record which should expire next February. I'm with ING. Check with your workplace too, they may have some kind of group insurance rates which are usually fairly decent

Meloche Monnex is what I go with and I pay $92/month for my 04 WRX. PC Financial is also pretty competitive.

OK so it seems the majority of people here go with Meloche Monnex...

I understand that I also have to be a part of a professional organization.. so here's my second question... is anyone here a CA or part of the ICAA?

I pay under $70/month with TD full coverage minus glass (price would be the same for an sti/M5). Why? higher deductible which evens out as long as you don't have an at-fault accident every 2 years.

If you want the $250/500 deductible then expect to pay more in the long run.

You don't need to be a part of a pro. organization with meloche. I am not, and my rate is just as low.

Thanks everyone I just checked it out... it turns out that I can get identical coverage to what I have in BC for the same price with Meloche.

Lance,

That's all 3 together. The WRX works out to about $80/mth, CRX=$50/mth, house ins.=$20. I'll have to check my deductibles again if you want more accurate numbers.

For me, State Farm is as cheap as Monnex (I'm an Apegga member).

Both my cars (05 Maxima SE/Forester XT) and my house are around $220/month.

Mmmm. Meloche Monnex wouldn't even return my calls. I went with Canadian Direct Insurance and saved just over $700 compared to ING. I got tired of ING increasing my insurance every year. Got better coverage through CDI, too.

I pay $170/month with Meloche Monnex - for the 2006 STi, a 2003 minivan and house insurance. The STi accounts for $100 of that.

I opted out of the full glass coverage for both cars since a claim would cost me much more than paying for it outright, and it is $500 deductible. House is like up to $1million or something.
