When shopping for a new vehicle, be it a first time purchase or finally having to replace the old reliable family car, what do you look for?
Is it all about getting the best price, or perhaps this purchase is about fuel economy. Will you really love your new vehicle if it doesn’t meet all your needs, including visual appeal? There are so many aspects to consider before agreeing on the right vehicle which is practical for your needs and satisfies your wants in this purchase.
But what about vehicles with the best value, guess that depends on what you consider best value. Value is defined as “the regard that something is held to deserve, the importance, worth or usefulness of something”. That being said, what are the vehicles considered to be the cars of the best value in Canada? Consider these vehicles when your car shopping day comes:

Stay updated on industry or company changes that may affect your insurance coverage or buying decisions.
Your home is likely the most valued asset you own, and because of that, we believe that every policyholder should insist that their insurance company inspect what they insure. It has taken some insurers and homeowners years to realize the value of home insurance inspections.
Every insurance company has been witness to the loss of a family home, it is an absolutely horrific ordeal of devastation and emotion that the family is forced to endure. Although your first instinct may be to extinguish the fire, it is important that everyone knows what do when a fire becomes uncontrollable. Your family members have only a matter of minutes to safely escape the fire and smoke before it consumes the house. You must have a plan in place!
Ask anyone that works in insurance, the story has been the same for years. They never really planned to work in insurance, it somehow just happened. That may be changing. Our younger generations, yes that includes millennials, are selecting insurance as a career choice and choosing a post-secondary school and program that makes the best sense to achieve this goal.
