Earthquake Preparedness

Experts agree – there is no question whether or not the lower mainland will have a major earthquake – the only question is.. when? The links and video below will help you and your family prepare for this event. We are being told that in light of recent seizmic events that earthquake capacity of insurance companies may be reaching a saturation point. Rates and possibly deductibles may well rise and in higher earthquake zones we may see a restriction on access to coverage by some companies. Fortunately, we still have a few insurers who are willing to let you lock in your rates and deductibles for a 2-year period to avoid imminent increases. If you would like a quote on earthquake insurance for your home or business, please give us a call @ 604.276.0484.  We’ll make sure you get the coverage that’s best for you!
