How to get Car Insurance in Kingston

Finding Auto Insurance in Kingston

If you’ve been reading our blogs, you know we have already done some work figuring out what you need if you are getting auto insurance in Kingston. Shopping for insurance is never the fastest or most enjoyable process, but with a little planning and patience you will be surprised by how smoothly it can really go.

Before you can find that auto insurance, you need to first figure out what kind of car insurance you’ll need. Kingston has many options for car insurance, and some can be very specialized. Are you trying to insure a classic car in Kingston? What about a vehicle you will use to work? What about a vehicle that is owned by your work? Each of these options will be best served by a specialty market – one you might not be able to find if you just google “car insurance in Kingston” randomly.

Get Quotes for your Kingston Auto Policy

This is the easiest step in your search for insurance, where you just get some quotes from businesses in the local area, or from the much larger direct writing firms. It’s important to remember the local area businesses – they probably know the specifics of your lifestyle better, and can use that information to improve your policy.

Finding the bigger companies is easy, as they typically advertise with paid key-words to come up at the top of google, or the search results page if you simple look for “auto insurance”. If you add geographical modifiers, like “auto insurance in Kingston”, you will find more local companies.

I’d recommend using your yellow pages to search for local brokers, as well as getting a quote from some of the companies online, as well as a few of the bigger direct writer companies as well. This may seem like a lot, but since they all (generally) use the same software to quote, you will be able to complete the quotes very quickly without needing extra information. Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t also recommend checking out McDougall Insurance, who offers a wide range of products for auto insurance in Kingston, as well as property insurance, commercial insurance and many other products.

Deciding on Auto Insurance in Kingston


So now you have gotten your quotes, and have seen the varied prices. I would recommend taking a closer look at the quotes, and not just the total premium. The quotes should have the prices for all the individual bits of coverage broken out, so you should know exactly what type of coverage is costing you the most.

This knowledge can help you drop coverages you don’t need and are too expensive, which helps you find the most customizable and cheap option. I would also caution against immediately picking the cheapest number out of the pile – is that what you would do if you were going to a restaurant or choosing a vacation destination?

The truth is you get what you pay for, and with insurance the service you receive can be many times more valuable then the piece of paper you get – and that services doesn’t come free.

Purchasing your Auto Insurance in Kingston

Once you decide on which quote you are going to go with, make the call. Some companies can let you bind online, but they are pretty few and far between.

More likely, you will need to sign a contract, get your billing set up, and make a down-payment.

As soon as that is done, you’re pretty much covered. Enjoy driving down Princess Street and be happy you get your Kingston auto insurance done nice and easy.

For even faster results, Call our local Kingson branch (613) 389-5422.
