Mcdougall was not only the friendliest insurance company but also got me the best rate out of the 5 I called.
John Gilbert
My insurance policy was cancelled and I was referred to McDougall through a friend. I spoke with Blake Trickey and he made the experience quick and easy, not to mention getting me a great rate. I would easily recommend Blake from McDougall to anyone looking for new insurance!

Gwelda MacDonald
After being with our previous broker for over 30 years we decided to switch in hopes of a better level of customer service and are extremely pleased with our experience with McDougall's. Their representative, LesLee MacDonald, is proactive with regards to our evolving needs, personable and highly professional. We recommend McDougall's to family and friends.
Debbie Gordanier
Beth Larmon in the Kingston office is my agent for my home and auto insurance. I have been very pleased with the efficient and friendly service that we receive from Beth. I feel very confident in the coverage that is provided and the knowledge that Beth possesses. It’s comforting to be able to pick up the phone and know I will get the answers that are required without hassle. She is helpful, accommodating and always pleasant. I would recommend Beth and McDougall Insurance to others!

Mcdougall was not only the friendliest insurance company but also got me the best rate out of the 5 I called. Leslee was very approachable and understanding while helping me get insurance for the first time I recommend McDougall to anybody
Gabrielle Wilson
I was in a tight bind and needed insurance for something I was hosting the very next day. They pulled through and were able to give me full coverage despite the short notice. Forever going back for future use.
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.
Riley Sexsmith
I was referred here by a friend and was delighted with the service. My broker Blake Trickey was fantastic, not only getting me the best rate around, but he made the experience super easy and hassle free. I would (and do very often) recommend McDougall to anyone tired of overpaying for the auto 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.

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 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 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.
