Snowmobile Theft: What Can Insurance Do?

By Jake McCoy on Jan 29, 2023 9:53:00 AM

Over the Christmas break, some family friends of ours had their snowmobiles stolen right off their flatbed trailer. It was on relatively well lit street, the snowmobiles were tied down and didn't have the keys in them, and they weren't in a seedy area where you might expect something like this. Despite all of this, they still had their snowmobiles stolen in the early hours of boxing day.

Convictions: How do they impact your auto insurance?

By Jake McCoy on Dec 31, 2022 12:06:16 PM

Conviction can be a bit of a scary word. In this context, convictions are not quite as dramatic as the a Law and Order kind of convictions. In this case, a conviction refers to a driving conviction on your record. A driving conviction is when you get a pullover ticket where you were cited by the police for breaking the law.

*Note that only pull over tickets caused by your driving behaviour will impact your insurance.

The Car Wouldn't Start This Morning - Here's What I Did

By Jake McCoy on Dec 20, 2022 5:30:00 PM

This morning in Leduc County, where I am currently living, it was -43˚C when accounting for the wind chill. Given that it is December 20th in central Alberta, this kind of weather isn't really out of the ordinary. Living on an acreage, we park our vehicles outside on the driveway overnight. With multiple people living in the house, we have 4 vehicles on the property.

Earthquakes in Alberta - What Does Insurance Cover?

By Jake McCoy on Dec 2, 2022 2:01:39 PM

The province of Alberta is not usually known for it's natural disasters. In actuality, it's quite the opposite. The land-locked nature of the province prevents tsunamis and hurricanes, the relatively flat nature of the province isolates the risk of landslides and avalanches, and volcanic eruptions aren't a concern for obvious reasons.

Outside of forest fires and the odd tornado, Alberta is typically safe from most other kinds of natural disasters. Most people probably would have said that earthquakes are a non issue in Alberta, up until recent events anyway.

Travel Delays are the WORST

By Jake McCoy on Nov 23, 2022 9:45:00 AM

Airline travel is arguably one of the most dreaded parts of holidays or trips. You're trying to get to the airport on time, find a parking spot, get all your luggage and documents ready, and get everything you need to get done at the counter. Then you get to wait in the grueling lineup at airport security. All of that is just a part of the flying process. But that sinking feeling when you look up at the flight screen to see that your flight has been delayed? That feels demoralizing.
