“DON’T” Do it Yourself

In the 140 years we have been providing insurance, we have seen some pretty wild things. The lengths people will go to in order to save a buck or two never ceases to amaze us.

We thought it was time to throw open the pages of our insurance reports and share with you some of the most “resourceful” and “imaginative” solutions we’ve come across.

We call this monthly series “DON’T” Do it Yourself! We think you will understand why…

Disclaimer: Lambton Mutual Insurance does not advise recreating the following “resourceful” ideas.
We are not responsible for fires, flooding, electrocutions or divorces. Please DON’T do these things yourself!



Save some money on the heating bill (but not really).


“Skip the electrician… one bathroom outlet is perfectly fine….and safe.”


“Got a new dryer for Christmas, but don’t have an electric box? No problem, don’t use one.” Genius.
