Driving on the open roads through Nova Scotia right after a nice dusting is certainly a beautiful sight. Unfortunately, most winter driving isn’t so picturesque.
Driving in the Maritimes during the long, cold, and icy winter months poses significant dangers and stress. Even a simple commute to work can turn into a hefty financial burden if the unthinkable happens.
When you need to file auto insurance claims during the dreaded winter months, you need an insurance company on your side that keeps your best interests in mind. Here’s how to get through the process.

If auto insurance is a new concept to you or you’ve recently got a new car, you want to ensure you’re making an educated choice about the coverage you need that includes nothing you don’t.
When you choose a deductible, you’ll need to consider many variables like your financial position, vehicle value, and even road conditions – no two drivers are alike.
The snow is thawing and the sun is shining: it's spring in the Maritime provinces.
You're probably excited to get out there and hit the open road after your winter hibernation.
But humans aren't the only ones ready to enjoy the lovely spring weather. Don't forget: you also have to share the highway with several animals and a few (or sometimes many) less than perfect drivers.
Big changes are happening in the insurance industry.
Nova Scotia is now the first province to approve electronic pink slips. That's right: you no longer need to carry a hard copy of your auto insurance in your vehicle.
This decision is great for two reasons: it makes your life easier and helps make the world a little greener.
At Higgins Insurance, we care about our clients – you're like family to us – that's why we want to help you understand the changes and how Higgins Insurance can help.
