I totally understand the couple’s concerns about them dealing with ICBC. However, I wonder why no one told them they only have to take the basic auto insurance from ICBC?
ICBC does not have a monopoly on optional auto insurance. Optional auto insurance has been available with private insurers for over 20 years.
The part of insurance that covers, auto vandalism, theft, etc, is the comprehensive portion of auto insurance. This is a part of the auto insurance that they can get from many private insurers.
