Motorcycle Coverage in British Columbia
British Columbia is one of the most spectacular places in North America to ride a motorcycle. If you love to ride your motorcycle around BC, you need to make sure you have the right kind of motorcycle insurance in place. More and more BC motorcycle riders are getting their motorcycle insurance through one of our InsureBC office locations.
Similar to ICBC auto insurance, it is mandatory for all BC motorcyclists to carry standard insurance that covers third-party liability, accident benefits, and uninsured motorist protection. These standard coverages are part of what is offered through the ICBC motorcycle insurance program.
Optional motor vehicle coverage includes having coverage for damage or loss; such as comprehensive, collision or increased liability limits. Our team of insurance experts will introduce a range of these coverages that would protect you against the damage or complete loss of your motorcycle caused by theft, fire or other unforeseen events.

Many drivers in British Columbia are now eligible to renew their car insurance online, provided they meet the ICBC Online renewal criteria. Those individuals with a renewal date of May 1st or later can start this online renewal process 45 days prior to their existing policy expiring.This process is entirely new in BC, as it marks the first time that ICBC policy holders can renew their car insurance online at their own convenience. However, rest assured that as your broker, we are still here to assist you every step of the way. We’ll be reviewing your renewals and answering your questions when you need us to. We’ll make sure your coverage matches your insurance needs.
