HomeCar Insurance By CityCar Insurance Brampton

All factors of geography that affect car insurance prices conspire against Brampton. The best policy rate available for a 35-year-old man who drives an 8-year-old sedan and has no marks on his driving record is $1,845 annually. Compare this to the same drive, but change the location to Guelph, 70 km to the west. The Guelph driver saves over $800, almost half the premium for the same insurance.

Canada’s 9th largest city by population, Brampton sees congestion, poor road conditions, long commutes, and a high incidence rate for accidents. Insurance claims costs in the area, also much higher than other parts of the province, may stem from an active insurance fraud network using facilities in the area. Auto insurance fraud practices stem from staged accidents, exploitative towing operators, over-billing repair facilities, and unscrupulous medical and rehabilitation clinics. The cost per accident in Brampton is high. All local drivers share the cost to service the area.

Brampton is a young city, though the settlement predates the start of the 1800s. It wasn’t until 1974 that the area achieved city status. Known in the past for its nurseries, shoe manufacturing, and insurance services, Brampton now boasts Loblaws, Maple Lodge Farms, Chrysler, and Canadian Tire as a few of its main employers. Proximity to Toronto and comparatively low property values continue to draw businesses.

Affordable Car Insurance in Brampton

The price motorists pay for life in Brampton is expensive auto insurance. While the insurance industry and local law enforcement address car insurance fraud, drivers must look to other ways to reduce policy prices.

Cutting back car insurance coverage to meet the provincial minimum requirement is only an option for a few drivers who are able and willing to take on the financial costs of repairing or replacing a vehicle after an accident. The standard provincial policy does not include collision or comprehensive insurance provisions. However, drivers financing car purchases may find that lenders have insurance requirements.

Many Ontario drivers have additional third-party insurance coverage. This is a wise move since the provincial requirement is only $200,000. Settlements from serious accidents often exceed this amount. Any amount in excess of insurance coverage remains the responsibility of the driver. To guard against serious financial strain, it’s common to add liability coverage to $500,000 and beyond.

Raising the deductible limits on collision and comprehensive coverage lowers monthly insurance premiums. By taking on more financial responsibility in the case of an accident, a driver lowers day-to-day costs. A driver must be ready, however, to absorb these costs if an accident occurs. Note that in some cases where a driver is not at fault, other insurance provisions or companies may cover some or all deductible amounts. Check with your agent or broker to determine what applies to your specific policy.



Discounts may offer another path to lower auto insurance prices for Brampton drivers. Most, if not all, insurers offer discounts, incentives, and price breaks when a driver meets conditions. Insuring more than one car or combining home and auto insurance with one company may qualify you for discounts on those policies. Similarly, insuring more than one driver may lead to price breaks.

Other discounts can include vehicle amenities, such as using snow tires for winter driving or adding approved anti-theft devices. Usage-based insurance programs are on offer from some insurers. This tracks how your vehicle operates. Factors such as acceleration and braking are reported through a smartphone or diagnostic device. Participating insurance companies offer a discount when you sign up for the program and good driving habits potentially generate further savings.

There are many types of auto insurance discounts. Drivers over 55 and motorists who maintain claims-free status for a number of years with one insurance company often qualify for a percentage of their policy. Some companies even permit carrying claims-free status from another insurer as an incentive to switch.

Young drivers qualify for discounts by successfully completing driver training programs that have MTO approval. Be sure to check the MTO site for revoked schools. Certificates of completion won’t be honored by insurance companies unless a school has MTO approval. At the time of publication, two Brampton schools are listed on the list of revoked schools. Some insurance companies also offer discounts to students who maintain honors-level marks in high school.

In most cases, you need to request that discounts be applied to your policy, so make it a habit to ask your broker or agent if you qualify for additional savings. Most insurance companies do not add discounts automatically.
