    Mine was 19.6%
    2nd year with this company, after economical dumped their snowplow insurance completely, after a series of increases year to year of 7-8 %.
    Insurance companies earn their reputations like we all do, only people sing our praises for a job well done.

    Fergus tornado, i was heading home and the sky was the deepest green i had ever seen it
    The rain was falling hard sideways not an exaggeration... Truck was struggling to find a gear as i drove into the wind. Then it suddenly stopped and the sun came out.
    Apparently the tornado stopped in the bush right in the concession before it hit the road where i was.

    Everytime i tell this story my friends roll their eyes and say...
    " The sea was angry that day my friends..."

    And this one touched down 1/2 mile from my childhood home (the one that hit White Oaks in London):

    I can already see the ads for Discovery Canada...

    That 2nd one we weren't even home, but camping about 40km west. I recall the camper rocking from side to side on the stands - it was pretty horrific.

    50% increase for us this year. No claims ever, only one inquiry about 5 years ago.
