wheels will be covered up to a max of $1000. And no, the money doesnt go to him. They give him an invoice, and he takes that to a icbc shop and they do it for him and bill icbc.

You mention electronic parts then mention steering wheel and rims?? I'm confused?

If it's a car stereo or amp as long it's installed or bolted down it is covered up to $1,000. So I always try to make the best stereo system I can under a $1,000. It's fun to do and you can make a kickin system for that price... Any CD's radar detectors, AP, lab tops etc would have to be covered under house insurance.

Also you don't have to go with ICBC there are other insurance companies that have comprehensive deductibles at only $200.

thanks guys,
but 1000? that does not even cover the tires..... and honestly, what can 1000 give you for wheels and tires? i mean, if brand new.
so, no cash settlement for theft? my friend is wondering if he can make the best out of it by asking cash and buy some nice 2nd hand.

tell him to call ICBC and ask (or I guess you could call on his behalf?). They will let him know exactly what he can and cant get.

As lummer shawn said...your "friend" should call ICBC and ask them directly what his (or your?) options are. That way he (you?) get the facts, instead of heresay from an internet forum.

It's just that usually when people say "my friend", they are really referring to themselves, but are too shy or scared to admit it on the forum.

I think it's $1000 for audio equipment and $5000 for car parts. That is if you have all the receipts. And yea, they don't give you money.

Not so much voucher. It's like a invoice I guess, with the parts and the price.
Say for audio, they give you a separate invoice from the car parts invoice. You bring the invoice form to the place where they sell audio stuff, and you pick whichever thing you want, and you give them the form and they help you process it.

The invoice form is good for 2 years I think.

FYI I use family insurance for my additional stuff that doesnt' have to go through ICBC, and you can buy ADDitional insurance for aftermarket rims, etc.. anything.. you just have to declare it and pay for it. It's not that much, I think an additional $80/yr on my policy.

i.e more than $1000 for wheels
