I dealt with Blake Trickey in the Brockville Office - I called dozens of brokerages in Ontario looking for Right hand drive insurance for my vehicle I imported from Japan, with no luck or high rates were my only results - I then found Blake's name online and contacted him, within hours he had quotes back to me and within 2 days I had policy ready to go for my right hand drive vehicle and my other daily use vehicles as well!

John Lennox
My spouse and I utilized McDougall/ Brister Insurance when our previous insurance company gave us an insane quote for our home purchase. We contacted Shannon Leblanc since they were local, and began the process. Shannon was able to secure us Home Insurance for $1000 less per year than what our previous insurer wanted. We completed everything online through email eliminating the need to drive to their office or play telephone tag. This was really convenient for us as I work nights. I also got my motorcycle insurance through Shannon based on my pleasant experience with my home policy. Many insurance companies and brokers will only treat you like a policy number, where Shannon will treat you how a customer should be treated - with respect and courtesy. I highly recommend this brokerage for anyone in Ontario. From motorcycle insurance to home policies, no other company can compete with the quality of service you will receive from them.

Jason Lloyd
I have been a long time customer of the McDougall Insurance Pembroke office. I received quotes from another broker a few years ago, but I decided to stay loyal to McDougall Insurance in Pembroke. The service and professionalism was better, the price was better and every year they discuss my insurance options with me. I insurance my business and my personal interests with McDougall in Pembroke, and I have zero worries. This is the best insurance office in Pembroke/Petawawa, hands down.

I have been a client of McDougall Insurance for just over a year now. At the beginning of the summer I was in an accident that wrote my car off. I called my broker Mike Cunha right away and he was just leaving for the day but told me to call back as soon as things were settled. When I called back Mike had left all my info with his colleagues and they were waiting for me! They helped me talk to the right people and get everything done quickly and efficiently! I have never had such great service!! :) A big thank you to everyone at McDougall and especially Mike for all the help! I would definitely recommend McDougall to all my friends and family!

Service is exceptional. Always there to help when changing cars. Let me know about changes on upcoming policies and let me know if the price is going up or down. This tells me that they have reviewed the policy. They check rates with other companies and advise me. Have also treated my referrals with the same awesomeness.

Cassandra Musclow
I have been with this company for 20 years of varying insurance needs from home, auto to atv, landlords insurance and contents for storage. Darren McCaskie has always helped, gone above and beyond expectations, he even reached out to me when I had neglected to update my license when renewing my plates which the licence office didn't even mention to me. He certainly saved me from what could have been an expensive fine if caught driving :)Michelle Dausett was invaluable in my decision making process when I seeking quick quotes for cars as I was shopping for a new vehicle.I love the multifaceted communications approach, the ease of seeking information and the ability to get quick responses from all avenues which include calls, emails, messaging and texting.McDougall Insurance - Bancroft has streamlined the process and have hired incredible staff which makes arranging insurance a much easier administrative process than with any other provider I use corporately.I can tell you that every single encounter with this business has proven to be a successful, worthwhile endeavor and I would highly recommend them for all of your insurance needs.When in doubt, it is always worth a comparison to your current provider.
Ashley S
Before working with McDougall/Bickerton I had been with my previous broker for years - a half decade or more I think - and I didn't feel like I was getting the best deal anymore. I contacted Jon Borrello and right away I knew I'd found someone I could trust not only to find me a great deal, but to go to bat for me. Jon ended up saving me hundreds, and my coverage is excellent. I'm so happy with the service I have received that I happily refer my friends to him whenever they ask if I "know a guy in insurance". Yeah, I know a guy. And he's awesome!

Mike Cunha has been my "insurance guy" for the past couple of years and has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. Mike has quoted me on auto insurance, our home, and on our trailer insurance. In all cases, Mike’s quotes beat every other received. I would strongly recommend giving Mike Cunha at McDougall a call to see the packages and pricing he can offer - I am confident you will find that his combination of pricing and service cannot be beat.
Kasaundra MacLean
My experience with McDougall Insurance & Financial has been nothing but A+ service! The first time I called McDougall I was searching for auto insurance rates as my current policy elsewhere was soon ending & Mike Cunha was helping me with options for my renewal. Six months later when my policy was up Mike called me to let me know he had found me a great policy, not only did he go out of his way to remember me six months later but he also found me the best rate going! I was more then impressed & signed right away, since then have also referred all my family & friends. My broker Mike Cunha is awesome followed by all the staff at McDougall Insurance, if my broker is away and I have any questions the staff at McDougall helps me with no hesitations and always promptly, keep up the good work.Looking forward to many more years of business, Kasaundra MacLean

Linda, and the rest of the team at McDougall, have been an incredible source of knowledge and expertise to help with my insurance needs while living locally, and away from home. From auto insurance on my first vehicle, to tenant insurance where I currently live in Toronto. I can easily ask for quotes and receive quick and honest responses. McDougall makes insurance a breeze.

It's not like calling an insurance company, almost like calling someone you've known for along time.My wife and I have always been taking care of the way we expect too be there. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending McDougall to anyone
Mary Vanderpas
We had a very positive experience when we met with Dean Coulter. Once all the preliminary reviews were completed Dean went through a very detailed analysis of our insurable items and went to work to find the best rates that would meet our requirements. After presenting the breakdown we were amazed that would be saving hundreds of dollars against our prior company who we had been with for over 25 years. We asked our son to get his insurance evaluated and again saved literally hundreds of dollars a year in costs. There is no question that Dean and the McDougall Insurance group spend the time and resources to get their clients the best rates. We recommended that you take the time to call and have your insurance evaluated by Dean and his team. You will not be disappointed.

Our Insurance for our home and vehicles was expiring with another company who we had been with for eight years. We decided maybe it was time to get a different quote for our insurance.We contact Dean Coulter at McDougall Insurance in Bancroft. Dean gathered all our information and was able to give us a quote for our insurance which was 1200.00 cheaper for the year with the same coverage that we previously had for our vehicles with the other insurance company.Dean was professional, quick and efficient in dealing with us. We are very happy that we switched to McDougall Insurance and the service we received from Dean. Wish we would have done it sooner.

I have recently purchased insurance from Blake Trickey at McDougall Insurance. He provided a timely response to my requests. I could clearly see he appreciated my business and was willing to work hard for me. He has always been available when I call. I immediately felt this person and the agency were a business which focuses on honesty and integrity, and go above and beyond to meet and exceeded my expectations. I truly felt that he was on my side and cared about me not just my business. I would highly recommend Blake to my friends and family.

We have been a customer of McDougall Insurance for 15 years and can't say enough good things about them. We have had the pleasure of working with Gary for the entire time and honestly can't imagine having the trust I have with anyone else.

He has worked evenings and weekends in such an efficient manner that we've barely had the time to ask and it's already been taken care of.He not only keeps us up to date on anything new with our policy he also recommends ways we can save money and improve our coverage.We highly recommend McDougall Insurance to anyone who wants knowledge, friendly customer service and 100% dedication.

I was referred to Preston Perry at McDougall Insurance about 3 years ago for home & auto insurance when I moved to the area. He was extremely professional & knowledgeable about his business. I have since moved all of my insurance business (home, auto, health, life & commercial) to McDougall insurance, and am extremely pleased with the service, rates & communication received from the company. I would highly recommend this insurance brokerage, and continue to send referrals to Preston regularly.

I have been insured with McDougall Insurance through the Courtice office since 2001 when the courtice office first opened. My broker Darlene Hughes has been more then professional, and knowledgeable over the years. Im not a fan of insurance, but I must say dealing with Darlene makes the experience much less painful.

I have been with Scott Ferrier from McDougall Insurance for over 8 years and I could not be more happy with the service I have received! I am challenging client, in that I leave everything until the last minute, but Scott is always available and ready to make things happen! My husband finally switched over to McDougall as well for his car insurance, and Scott was able to save him over $300 a month!!! Needless to say I would recommend anyone checking out McDougall Insurance.

Best brokers ever!!! I have been using brokers for about 11 years now. Last year I met Jon Borrello and he saved me big bucks!! I was clearly over paying with my other brokers even tho they promised me the best rate possible. I have since sent over 50 friends and family members to him and the Mc Dougall brokers and everyone has switched over. Even on my friends commercial insurance they were able to offer more coverage for less. They have affiliations with all the top insurance companies and will find you the best rate guaranteed. Not only that but I switch my vehicles around a lot and Jon is always there to quote me or help me with any questions any time of the day. Even when he is home late at night he still answers any questions I have within minutes. I can honestly say I will never use another broker other then Jon @ Mc Dougall again. Best customer service I have ever had!

Val Huckstep
My experience with McDougall Insurance has been amazing right from the start! I got in contact with Jon Borello a few months ago, and have been overly pleased with his service! As this is my first time on insurance, Jon has made the experience super easy for me, and completely stress free! I've been more than pleased with the prices he's worked out for me and the over all service he provides. I couldn't be happier with the decision I made to go with McDougall, and I don't ever plan on changing companies!!
Peg Ramcharan
Dean was very professional and knowledgeable. He was able to quickly find me alternative insurance at a significant savings. He was very responsive and answered all my questions and made the transition over to the new plan seamless. I would highly recommend working with McDougal Insurance and in particular with Dean. We are about to purchase a new vehicle so I will be chatting with him again soon!
peggy walsh
Mike Cunha has been my "insurance guy" for the past couple of years and has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. Mike has quoted me on auto insurance, our home, and on our trailer insurance. In all cases, Mike’s quotes beat every other received. I would strongly recommend giving Mike Cunha at McDougall a call to see the packages and pricing he can offer - I am confident you will find that his combination of pricing and service cannot be beat.
Tracey Buote
When I was buying my new car I called Blake @ McDougall DLK Insurance in Brockville- he was very professional and gave me many options to choose from , he had time to answer all my questions and explained everything to me thoroughly so I would understand what I needed and didn’t need.I highly recommend McDougall DLK Insurance to anyone who is looking for insurance.
Nicole Leilich
I'm a first time insured and Mike explained everything to me with ease and found me a great rate I highly recommend McDougall insurance !
Justin Shakell
Switching to McDougall insurance, courtesy of Lance Holoway, has been very rewarding. Since the time we've moved our house, rental property, and cars to McDougall we've saved a substantial amount of money. Lance recruited us several years ago and we couldn't be happier to have him represent us. He is constantly looking for the best coverage options that not only saves us a significant amount of money, but more importantly gives us piece of mind that our important investments are taken care of in case of need. Thank you to Lance and the McDougall team for taking care of my family.
Ash Rockey
My husband and I have been looking for insurance quotes for a while. We had a great experience with Blake Trickey.

Thank you Blake Trickey at DLK Insurance Brokers Ltd.

Deb Johns
We recently had a minor flood in the crawlspace under our home. While, in the final analysis, it was minor, at the time when we had the full municipal water line seemingly pouring into the space, we were feeling that, at any time, the house would start to float. In the middle of the chaos, on a Saturday afternoon, I decided to just contact Mike Cunha from your Oshawa office just to give him a heads up for Monday morning. To my amazement, he replied within minutes and stayed in touch throughout the weekend and into this week, providing advice, guidance, support and assistance with a cleanup crew. I cannot imagine anybody providing better customer service than this. We sure didn't want the flood but when things go wrong, it sure was inspiring to have someone on the other end to help us to the extent that Mike. Great service that was very much appreciated. I'm passing his name to any friends and family that are ready to switch insurance. Thanks again.
Todd Lihou
