Mine was $580, for up to 2M and without any add-ins. Adding, erm, add-ins I got it up to $700, which is still less than the ~$800 I'm paying with Harvard Western. Problem with Harvard Western is the deducible –$1000–, which in the praxis wouldn't really cover lenses that cost less than that should something happened to one of them.
I didn't go for the 5M coverage as the damage to third parties coverage remains at 2M, though I think some crown corporations require the professionals they hire to be covered for 5M. Wonder if you can upgrade after you've purchased a policy.
Upgrading after the fact would be nice. I know that many places require 2 mil in coverage. But, as I think most liability lawsuits tend to be frivolous in nature, I don't think I need the 2mil right now.
My husband owns a flooring installation company, and he's had one liability lawsuit against him for a relatively small sum. There was no judgement against him, but he offered a settlement. His liability insurance was through Saskatechwan Mutual, and the claim process was an absolute nightmare the whole way through the process. We had to pay for all of hubby's legal fees out of pocket, and the case dragged on for over a year. Saskatchewan Mutual did pay up eventually (legal fees and settlement, minus the deductible) but it took six months after everything was settled.
