Nice to Meet You, Nanaimo

Earlier this month, we announced that we are opening an office in Nanaimo. It will be our first office outside of Greater Victoria, and we are so excited!

Nanaimo’s booming development and investment in infrastructure to accommodate its expanding population made it a natural choice for our newest office location. Plus, we hear it’s a great place to live and work.

Like the city of Nanaimo, Megson FitzPatrick is growing. We have been insuring businesses in BC – big and small – for over fifty years, and we bring a thorough understanding of the ever-evolving commercial insurance marketplace. Throughout those fifty years, we have cultivated close relationships with a variety of insurance companies, which gives us a competitive edge when seeking insurance for all types of businesses. We also stay on top of marketplace trends (cyber insurance, anyone?), and help you understand everything you need to know to protect your business. With our knowledge and our marketplace access, your business will be well-covered.

Our office space on Wallace Street in downtown Nanaimo will be equipped with an experienced team of commercial insurance brokers, and a senior personal insurance agent, to help you with your business and home insurance needs. (We are currently recruiting for a commercial lines broker with connections in the Nanaimo area to join our team. To view the full posting and find out how to apply, click here.)

Our Nanaimo team will be supported by our Victoria offices, giving you access to our educated, experienced, and enthusiastic staff. Our Victoria team will be available for:

  • Claims service – our dedicated team of claims professionals is here to answer your questions, walk you through the claims process, and help you resolve any issues that arise.
  • Insurance marketing – our insurance marketing team has tripled in recent years. This team spends all day working with insurers to find the coverage you need at the best possible price, and they specialize in securing coverage for large, complex risks.
  • Fleet – we have a growing fleet department at Megson FitzPatrick to help with your commercial auto needs, from five car small delivery businesses, to large trucking operations and municipal fleets. Everyone in our fleet department constantly goes above & beyond to deliver whatever our clients need, and they do it with a sincere smile.
  • Home (and condo) insurance – there will be a home insurance agent in our Nanaimo office to help you in-person, but most home insurance policies will be serviced by our Victoria-based team. Whether you live in Nanaimo, Cranbrook, Fort Nelson, or anywhere in between, our personal insurance team has the skills to help you.
  • Landlord BC – if you own a home you rent to others, our Landlord BC programme offers you a competitive rate and fantastic coverage for your investment. And you get a membership to LandlordBC, giving you access to all of their carefully curated resources.
  • ICBC auto insurance – our Autoplan insurance experts know what’s going on with ICBC. From Enhanced Care to lost decals, they can answer your questions, quote new vehicles, and renew and change your policies over the phone, from anywhere in BC.

Our doors will open in Nanaimo in early May, but until then, you can contact us at 1.888.595.5212. We can’t wait to see you in Nanaimo soon!
