My sled insurance went up as well. Last year I paid $430.00 to insure and register my 02 MXZ 600 in Manitoba. This year it went up to $487. Not much of a jump but the sled is not what it was worth last year. It's insured for less but costs more. It just aint right. The reason. They tell me 9-11 and the threat of it happening again is driving up the cost of insurance. For a sled
? Give me a *#[email protected]' break. :cussing:
I have my 02 ZR-800 insured with Economical Mutual, just a tad over $500/full coverage. I contemplated buying a new 900 Cat but Economical flat out refused coverage. This insurance problem this season has to be hurting sales/resale on the bigger sleds.
I was told my renewal would come in just a tad over $500 but have instead received the policy with a $736.50 premium. This is for full coverage with a $500 deductable. All perils accounts for $517 of that total.
Nice to see these ins. co's seem to be now dreaming up numbers at will.
Me and my buddy went through the same thing... All I can say is NATIONWIDE INSURANCE. We are now insured with them for half of all the others. 1 year full coverage on brand new REV's for under $300 for the 600cc and $330 for the 800cc.
Im in mid michigan and have state farm ($275 per yr on 02 500 MXZ and $330 per yr on 01 ZRT600) last year my Cat dealer told me no one in the area would even touch a Thunder cat but state farm said they will BUT I didnt ask a price.... The biggest problem I think is alot of people buy them and when the season is over or their buddies sled kicked their @%s they decide to burn or pin the throttle! !!!
I just got a quote from Liberty mutual. You have to at least have a carinsured thru them. I gae them my 79 cj (have co. car) and got a quote on the jeep and my zr900. For the jepp it was $325.00 a year (their policy is for one year ) which is cheaper then meemic the co. I have now by about $75.00 and I have three other cars insured as well. The sled for full coverage one year with $200.00 deductible was 188.00 Sounds good to me. Kevin
