People often say that in life, it is not about the destination, but the journey.
Navigators is there to help you navigate through life’s journey, its possible pitfalls and perils. Look to us as trusted advisors working to protect you and your family from the various risks faced with your car, home and financial assets.
Insurance need to be uniquely designed – information available on the Internet may not apply to your own personal situation. Only with the advice and counsel of a trusted insurance advisor can we arrive at an accurate quote that is based on your financial history, level of risk assumption and budgetary requirements.
That’s why we take a customer-centred approach to service.
Whether you are looking to protect your home, ensure the safety of your car or even protect your family in the event something happens to you, we select the insurance company that best matches your risk profile and record so you don’t end up paying more than what you need. We will advise you when to add or increase your coverage, so that in the event a claim needs to be made against your policy, you are covered.
At Navigators Insurance, a part of McLean Hallmark, one of our greatest strengths is our ability to cater to various communities that reside in Toronto. The Navigators team embodies what Ontario represents. We are proud to service clients who speak Cantonese, French, German, Hindi, Japanese, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Ukrainian or Urdu.
We are Navigators, Give us a call, and let’s be on a first name basis.
