Get affordable insurance in Sherwood Park, Alberta

Many Sherwood Park customers are under the misconception that insurance is expensive. While it can be costly, it certainly doesn’t have to be, and there are several strategies you can adopt if you want to pay as little as possible for your insurance plan. However, these strategies may not be obvious to someone outside the insurance industry, which is why the BrokerLink team is happy to provide money-saving tips whenever we can. We have compiled a few of our top tips and outlined them below to help you get started:

Reach out to a Sherwood Park insurance broker for help

Reaching out to a Sherwood Park insurance broker is a fantastic option if you are looking to save money on insurance. This is because insurance brokers represent you, the customer, and are committed to finding policies that meet your needs and budget. When reaching out to an insurance broker near you, just make sure that they are licensed and have the insurance expertise to help you. For example, here at BrokerLink, all insurance advisors are fully licensed and have all kinds of resources at their disposal to help you find a great policy at a low price.

Bundle Sherwood Park insurance policies

Bundling is another way to save money on Sherwood Park insurance. Many insurance companies will give you a great deal if you bundle home and car insurance.. You can also purchase two of the same type of insurance, like two car insurance plans. Contact a BrokerLink insurance advisor to find out more about how bundling works, how much you can potentially save by bundling, and which insurance companies offer bundles.

Pick the highest deductibles you can afford for your Sherwood Park insurance plan

Did you know that the deductibles you select for your Sherwood Park insurance policy will dictate how much you pay for your policy? While a number of factors determine premiums in Sherwood Park, deductibles are one of the biggest. Therefore, if you want to cut costs on insurance, we recommend picking the highest deductibles you can afford. You will likely get to select a deductible for every type of coverage on your policy. The higher the deductible you choose, the more financial responsibility you are taking on, and the lower your premium will be.

Think carefully before buying a new vehicle or home in Sherwood Park

In the same way that deductibles can influence how much you pay for insurance, so too can the type of vehicle you drive or the home you own - when it comes to car and home insurance, respectively. Understanding how the car you drive or the home you live in can influence your premiums is important, especially if you are in the market for something new. Before committing to a new vehicle or home purchase, consider the following: If you want to keep car insurance rates low, consider purchasing a vehicle that is known for its safety and reliability. Those with a low rate of theft and lots of safety features may come with lower insurance rates. Similarly, if you want to keep home insurance costs down, we recommend buying a home with modern electrical, plumbing, and heating systems, a roof that is no more than 20 years old, energy-efficient or smart features, and one that is located near emergency services, such as a fire station or a fire hydrant.

How insurance companies calculate premiums in Sherwood Park

Insurance companies each have their own unique formulas for calculating insurance premiums, and while it can be difficult to understand the nuances of each, it can still be useful to understand the factors that come into play. Thus, the BrokerLink team has compiled a list of general factors that insurance agents in Sherwood Park will use to evaluate your risk level and ultimately set your premium. Note that not every factor listed below will be considered for every type of insurance. Some are specific to car insurance while others are specific to commercial insurance, etc. However, reading through the following list can give you a better idea of what details you can expect to come into play when you purchase a Sherwood Park insurance policy:

  • Your personal insurance claims history
  • The coverages, limits, and deductibles you select for your policy
  • Age
  • Driving record
  • Annual mileage
  • Local laws
  • Your home address
  • Whether you use your car for business or personal reasons or both
  • The make, model, and year of the vehicle you drive
  • The size of your home
  • The condition of your home’s roof
  • The type and condition of your home’s electrical system
  • The type and condition of your home’s plumbing system
  • The type and condition of your home’s heating system

Sherwood Park insurance broker FAQs

Do drivers need to buy auto insurance in Sherwood Park?

Yes, and there are no ifs, ands, or buts about it. All drivers in Sherwood Park must have a valid car insurance plan if they want to legally drive in the province. If they fail to obtain a plan and drive anyway, they will be committing an illegal act. If caught, you could face fines of up to tens of thousands of dollars, the impounding of your vehicle, the temporary suspension of your driver’s licence, and possibly even jail time. When buying car insurance in Sherwood Park, make sure that the coverage you choose meets the minimum required in the province.

For example, in Alberta, all drivers are required to carry no less than $200,000 in third party liability coverage at all times, in addition to uninsured automobile coverage, accident benefits coverage, and more. It is worth noting that if you are financing or leasing a vehicle, collision coverage and comprehensive coverage may also be required. Many lenders make these extra coverages a stipulation of the lease agreement for greater protection.

Do I need property insurance in Sherwood Park?

Do you need property insurance in Sherwood Park? Yes. Are you required to have it? Maybe. Unlike car insurance, home insurance is not legally mandated in Sherwood Park. Therefore, you are not obligated to purchase a policy simply because you own a home in Alberta. That said, you may be contractually obligated to purchase a home insurance plan depending on your circumstances.

For example, mortgage loan contracts and lease agreements may require borrowers and tenants, respectively, to purchase some form of home insurance coverage. So if you have a mortgage that you are still paying off or you are a renter in Sherwood Park, make sure to carefully read through the terms and clauses of any contracts you may have signed. Such contracts will usually outline not only whether or not you need home insurance but what types of coverage you need, how much coverage, and how long you are required to have coverage for. All of this information will be incredibly important when purchasing a Sherwood Park home insurance plan.

How can I get a discount on my Sherwood Park insurance policy?

All you have to do is ask! You might be surprised to learn just how many insurance discounts are out there, as well as the number of insurance companies that are willing to offer them to customers. First, there are general discounts that may apply to any type of insurance, such as bundling discounts, alumni discounts, and employee discounts. Second, there are discounts that are offered on specific types of insurance policies, such as alarm system discounts on home insurance or winter tire discounts on car insurance. Ask a local insurance broker or agent for more information on the insurance discounts that may be available to you.

What is liability coverage for?

Liability insurance aims to safeguard policyholders against the reality of legal claims. Whether you are a business, a homeowner, or you drive a car, you could be vulnerable to a lawsuit. Liability insurance protects you against this expensive outcome by covering the cost of legal fees, medical expenses, repair bills, and more if you fall victim to a claim. Please note that there are many types of liability insurance and they differ from one another, so it’s important to know which type is included in your policy.

In Sherwood Park, car insurance is mandatory and third party liability coverage is one component of mandatory auto insurance coverage. This coverage comes into play if you get into an at-fault accident. Meanwhile, most home insurance plans in Alberta feature personal liability coverage, protecting you if a visitor to your home injures themselves while on your property or your home accidentally causes property damage to another. Finally, there are all sorts of liability insurance options for Sherwood Park commercial insurance policies, such as commercial general liability insurance and cyber liability insurance, among others.

How does all perils insurance work?

All perils insurance, or an all risk policy, is a type of coverage that can be added to a variety of insurance plans, including but not limited to home insurance, car insurance, and business insurance. By adding all perils insurance to your policy, you are protecting yourself against the broadest range of risks. As you may know, many insurance policies protect policyholders from property damage. However, you are only protected against specific forms of property damage - namely, those caused by the perils listed in your policy.

Thus, the more perils that are listed in your policy, the more protected you will be. All perils insurance allows you to add the largest possible number of perils to your policy. Please note that the most common perils featured in all perils coverage include: fire, theft, vandalism, falling objects, wind, hail, freezing, water damage, weight of ice, snow, or sleet, and damage from electrical currents. While all perils insurance is comprehensive, it doesn’t cover everything. Risks that likely will not be covered by your all perils insurance include nuclear disasters, large-scale natural disasters like tsunamis, floods, and earthquakes, acts of war and terrorism, and intentional or fraudulent losses.
