Krista Wilson is super duper awesome! She got everything done in a timely manner and I am so impressed with her customer service. I've dealt with the run around with other insurance brokers and she was straight to the point. Thanks Krista 😀

I was at my wits end with my previous insurance broker as I got 3 business day notice before my policy (which is suppose to automatically renew) was no longer offered with my current insurance broker. So my rates have tripled and they just wanted me to settle with my new policy and didn't help me get a lower rate with another insurance company. Krista Wilson with Leibel was a breath of fresh air she was super helpful, quick and found me the best rate that almost matched my current rate and she even assisted me letting me know the paperwork I needed to find to get an even lower rate. You can tell she really loves and enjoys her job and helping people out.

I recently purchased my commercial van Insurance through Leibel Insurance Group. I was helped by Monique Bradley. I usually don't write much reviews, But her service inspired me to go and write a comment as people like her needs to be appreciated because I believe she stands out in her skills. She was very knowledgeable, she listened to me very carefully and understood very clearly what I wasnt in my policy and then tailored it with perfection. Therefore I highly recommend Leibel Insurance group and especially to ask for Monique Bradley... Cheers!!!!!

Dealing with Krista was fantastic!! I called in on behalf of my mother in law with hopes of getting her insured. Krista was attentive and on top of it all. She was thorough, kind and courteous from beginning to end. She replys quickly to your questions via email or phone. She was busy at a convention, left so that she could help us with finalizing our policy. Thank you Krista for all of your. Come January, I will be contacting Krista directly to obtain a policy of my own.

Monique at LIG has been more than helpful and polite on every occasion/interaction. I've never had such exceptional service. She is extremely organized, punctual, and personable. I would recommend Monique to anyone looking for insurance help in a heartbeat.

How to prepare for winter driving conditions.

Winter driving in Alberta can be safe when proper precautions are taken. As Ned Stark once said “Winter is Coming.” And in Alberta, that means winter will be here soon. Learn how you can prepare for a season of icy roads, limited snowy vision, and more before the cold strikes!


Being prepared for snow and ice on the roads in Edmonton, Calgary and surrounding areas is a must. Below are recommendations on how you can better prepare yourself and your vehicle for winter driving conditions.

How can I prepare my car for winter conditions? No matter what type of vehicle you drive, whether it is a 4×4 all wheel drive SUV, or a front wheel drive 2-door compact car, your vehicle should be equipped with proper winter tires. Winter tires will have the proper tread to increase traction on less than ideal surfaces, while also being manufactured to properly function in frigid temperatures. During the fall season, schedule a vehicle service with your mechanic to ensure brakes are in good condition, fluids are topped, and no maintenance is required. This can help prevent break-downs or stalls in colder weather. We also recommend installing a new set of wiper blades to improve visibility. If you have any existing small chips in your windshield, fill them ahead of time to avoid cracking and obstruction of view. Always be prepared by keeping an emergency kit in your vehicle. Items such as blankets, extra clothes, water and food, flashlight, shovel, jumper cables, and a first aid kit are all recommended in case of a break down or accident.

Should I only drive in winter with an all-wheel drive vehicle? Winter driving can be safe in front-wheel, rear-wheel, and all-wheel drive vehicles. Driving handling will vary between the different drive trains due to the power exerted to different areas of the vehicle. For instance a rear wheel drive vehicle will produce more power to the rear axel, while all-wheel drive vehicles can increase traction by sending power to all four wheels more equally.

How can I be a safer driver in the winter? Many factors influence safe driving in winter conditions, this can include speed and braking. Slowing down your speed to account for conditions and leaving proper spacing for braking can help improve safety. Take into account hard braking can lock your brakes especially when traction is lost due to an icy surface.

What should I remember before driving in winter conditions? Before leaving your house, ensure you have your cell phone on and charged, and always bring proper clothing with you such as winter boots and a jacket.
