Had an accident and they provided an excellent claim processing service. No issues at all. They gave me fare value of my car.

Thought I had a good rate on my bike insurance, then I got it cut in half by putting my home and auto with it. New helmet time! :D

not like the others

on 2018-08-08 16:13:04

didn't know the difference between a mutual and a regular insurance company until Mitchell Whales explained it to me. love knowing they aren't trying to gouge me for profit but they exist for their policy holders.

Lowest rates by far

on 2018-04-22 11:49:01

I pay $970 for my 2008 GSXR 600 and my M license. Wawanesa's given me the best rates in Ontario to date.

My 22 year old nephew has a 2004 GSXR 600 and says Wawanesa was one of the pricier companies to quote him, so YMMV.

Great company. Excellent discounts for combining home and auto as well as multi-vehicle. Policy document delivery is always well before renewal.
