Stickers being phased out
Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) recently announced that effective March 1, 2016, licence plate validation stickers will no longer be required on Manitoba-registered vehicles.
Off Road Vehicle Accident Benefits
Many people who own and/or operate Off Road Vehicles such as Snowmobiles and ATV’s are unaware that the basic insurances included by Manitoba Public Insurance for these vehicle types are not the same as those provided on their Passenger Vehicle/Truck policies.
There are a number of differences, but by far the most concerning relates to personal injuries incurred as a result of the use and operation of Off-Road Vehicles. The Personal Injury Protection Plan (PIPP) is designed to react to medical/death/funeral costs and loss of income for accidents involving motor vehicles on public roadways, and as such does not apply to Off-Road Vehicles.
Trucking Insurance is a very sensitive class of business insurance companies write (if they even write it at all). You would know this if you have ever tried applying for an insurance policy for your own logistics firm, hauling company, commercial vehicles of certain types and numerous other circumstances. Applications are generally long and ask a lot of very specific questions regarding your business operations. This can be a very frustrating process for start-up companies, for example, providing a list of the commodities you will be carrying, the average and maximum values of each commodity to be carried, and having to estimate overall annual mileage you will be travelling in Canada and/or the United States.
