Home and vehicle insurance for a dental assistant’s budget

Even in two-income households, it takes careful money management to get by in today’s economy. So when it comes to covering your insurance needs, what could be better than savings on top of savings?

The costs of home and auto insurance are rising due to factors that are often beyond our control – where we live, the impact of severe weather events. Finding the best value for money is a tedious and time-consuming process few of us have time for when juggling family and work.

It doesn’t have to be.

The most economical option is to bundle home and auto policies together with the same insurer and enjoy a discount. But what if you or a member of your family also operates a motorcycle or a snowmobile? Not all insurers are willing to provide coverage for vehicles considered “recreational.” This leaves you still having to shop around for specialized coverage, even if you are happy with your choice for home and auto.

There is another option.

The Canadian Dental Assistants Association (CDAA), your national association, has teamed up with TD Insurance Meloche Monnex to meet your home, auto and recreational vehicle insurance needs in one convenient package.

Not only do you receive a discount for bundling all of these policies together, you receive an additional discount through a preferred group rate. That means savings on top of savings, from a trusted group insurer that has been serving Canadians for more than 60 years.

There is no longer a need to lose hours in front of the computer, drifting from one website to the next, comparing rates and fine print. TD’s insurance experts will take the time to explore and explain all your coverage options and help you select the level of protection that best suits your needs.

Auto: You can save on your auto insurance by maintaining a good driving record, or by equipping your vehicle with an approved anti-theft system. Choose from a variety of additional options for made-to-measure coverage. If you own more than one car, you can save even more with TD’s multi-vehicle discount.

Home: Whether you own your home or prefer to rent, TD will help you find the right coverage to insure all your valued belongings, both inside and outside your home.

Motorcycles: TD offers competitive rates for a variety of motorcycles. Be sure to look into the Ride and Drive discount, which is applicable to your motorcycle insurance premium when you also insure your automobile with TD.

Recreational vehicles: ATVs, motor homes, snowmobiles and more. No matter what you drive, TD can provide outstanding coverage at competitive rates.

TD also offers group rates to CDAA members for travel insurance.
