Insurance Services

At the Zorkin Insurance office we offer insurance products for commercial, ICBC, marine, private auto, RV, motorcycles, residential, condo/tenants and travel insurance.



Our commercial markets will adapt their coverage to your business needs whether you own a large business or home-based business. We have specialty markets for unique risks and represent Insurance companies who will tailor their policy to fit your insurance requirements. Visit one of our companies web pages at or


Tenants' packages are included in our broad range of services. We also sell condominium insurance and will explain the added coverages included in this form of policy, as to why you need your own policy and what is not covered under the master strata plan policy.

Residential / Home Owners

Your home is your biggest investment. We pride ourselves in ensuring that you are protected. Our products and coverage are among the best in the industry. We take time to complete a full replacement cost estimator to rebuild your home. Being an independent broker, it is important to us for you to understand the difference between comprehensive and broad coverage. We will guide you and suggest coverages you might need, asking for example whether you run a business in your home. Perhaps you need bylaw coverages to rebuild or other exposure you have not considered. Our discounts include mature, mortgage free, claims-free, burglar alarm, new home and a no-woodstove discount.

Private Auto

We can insure excess liability, collision and comprehensive coverage on your vehicle with savings to you through Family Insurance point of sale product. Optional coverages in this policy are replacement cost on your vehicle for the first three years, emergency road service expense and loss of use/legal liability coverage. Your first accident is forgiven with no loss of discounts. Claims are handled efficiently and professionally. Visit the Family Insurance web page at


We can insure your motorhome, camper, trailer or tent-trailer through a private insurer while you are on the road or while the unit is parked in your yard. Most homeowners' policies do not insure recreational vehicles when they are not in use. You can have your choice of insuring for replacement cost or actual cash value. Deductibles vary from $50 to $500 and most policies include a small amount of contents coverage. Mature discounts, at age 55, are also available. Visit these websites or
