    I don't know anything about insurance other than it is a racket,but I live in California and when I bought my street legal Hijet the only company that would even talk was Progressive Insurance and they only provide minimal liability coverage and only for me.My regular insurance agent,who I've dealt with for 30 years,tried every thing he knew to no avail so I'm stuck with this outfit for nearly $600 a year.I don't know if Progressive does business in Canada or if the rules are the same but if so you might try them.
    I never thought I'd recommend a pinko commie outfit like them but that's what minnie truck addiction will do to you.

    I found some very reasonable insurance, only "issue" is that they only do business insurance... but it's only $96/m full coverage, for me... Under 25, had my G2 since Monday :)

    Call/E-Mail Right Drive, ask them about it, not sure if I am supposed to be giving out the info or not.

    Why were you sworn to secrecy? Only Right Drive customers need know? Is there a secret hand shake, decoder ring, etc?

    I've read a lot of posts that basically go as follows..

    Dude posts insurance and person to talk to directly.
    A few people get insured by that person.
    Then that person no longer works there or the company has stopped insuring RHD vehicles.

    I bought my truck privately by the way, contacted many insurance companies.

    well i thought i'd weigh into this debate a bit. i'm just inches away from picking up a suzuki carry and i'm having a hell of a time trying to find insurance. i had only one broker able to find some kind of coverage but it's under something called facilities. ultimately what that means is that they consider my 17 year spotless driving record to be moot and consider me the equivalent of a 16 year old who bought an 1800cc suzuki m109 boulevard. which i would buy in a heart beat btw. so they said it'd be 2500/year which is more than both of my cars and my house combined... i'm going to give the guys at right hand a call tomorrow. see what pans out.

    Has anyone had any luck with insurance in Ontario since these last posts? I have been looking and calling like crazy. Only company I found is Facility for significantly more money than insuring my brand new F150.

    I know this post is quite old, but now Right Drive in Vaughan insures RHD vehicles. I'm not sure how it works as I am still with State Farm, but They work with an insurance company and from what I hear the rates are quite reasonable.

    Apparently they have a "RH club" to which you belong, and are entitled to some sort of group insurance. But in dealing with RH Drive for parts, they said that their deal was reasonable. So far my coverage hasn't been dropped, so I haven't looked into it any further. At least we have an option again.

    Im in the same boat as you @packrat but I think my days are numbered. I asked State Farm for a quote of a RHD Defender I am importing and they said they wouldnt do it and that as soon as someone figured out Im currently driving a RHD Sambar they would not renew. Good to know there is an option in the future.

    I have read about rhd insurance in Ontario. Threads of how they claim they insure country wide and take your money only for the person to find out its not true and a refund basically like pulling hens teeth. Proceed cautiously I would suggest.

    Mitchell & Whale in Ontario for insurance. Kinda pricey, but they do offer insurance for rhd vehicles. (At least at the moment.)
    Otherwise, contact a few Brokers. There are companies out there that will insure, but of course to get discounts, you need to move some more business their way.
