private insurance

I dont know if anyone has posted this but i did a search and nothing came out. Just trying to help local bike riders. Private insurance rules have changed! its no longer 10 years of driving , it is now 5! years. I went through beacon for comp, and collision and i paid 425$ for the full year and that includes storage when you take your bike off the road. You do need to get plates and lib. through icbc but with my 5 % discount it was 98 bucks a month . They do have a application form on there website or just go into one of the local insurance branches and see if your accepted. icbc for comp, collision and plates quoted me 230$ a month for a 600 :O . 425$ a year , theres no excuse not to get theft on your bike !!!!

Private is the best way to go (if you qualify) for collision/comprehensive.

I pay $275 with $500 deductible (or $248 with $1000 deductible) for the year through Megson Fitzpatrick on a 900cc. Beacon quoted me $325 for the year.

IIRC it is harder to qualify for MF than Beacon because they require you to have 10 years of driving experience, but I could be wrong. Best to call MF directly or Cassells Insurance (for Beacon) to ask for a quote.

i personally just insure it for the year and cancel at the end of riding season makes the monthly payments even cheaper than 6 months of insurance.

I insured thru MegsonFitzpatrick this year. Whole yr coll/comp = 450$ thats for my 09 daytona675. I've had suspension before, but their online application only asks for previous 5 yrs of offences. And you only need 5yrs driving exp i believe. However, it does ask you how many yrs riding exp you have, as well.

Where do you go to insure through beacon, ect? Do you fill out a form and mail it in, or is there a faster way?

i paid one time 325 for beacon and 67/month to icbc for 1m liability. i dont think i have collision tho. 2003 r6 declared at 3500. monthly payment ends when i cancel at the end of the season but beacon stays on as a storage policy.

amount of what you pay has different factors tho.

i went to the autoplan called comprehensive insurance on canada way and smith in burnaby. if you're in the area, look for ian. its a pretty chill autoplan office. very helpful and non rushed. he make sure you understand what you are paying for at the lowest amount possible.

sorry guys. Can someone please educate me?

Basic insurance we have to go via ICBC right?
Then anything such as collision and liability and comprehensive that's where you go Beacon right?

Yup.... I go to cassells insurance on broadway. She will do the ICBC part of it for you and the beacon all at once. Also your beacon insurance will act as storage insurance during the winter.
