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.

Winter Tires in Alberta

Let’s face it, if you haven’t already accepted it, you can at least acknowledge that living in Alberta signs us up for a long winter. Cold seasons mean looking forward to a lot of driving in snowy, slippery conditions.

Now let’s step back and talk about all the driving that takes place during the winter season. The combination of snow and ice can impact braking distance and speed, and this can lead to dangerous driving situations. Extra caution is necessary in these less than ideal driving conditions that winter brings.

This blog isn’t to warn you about winter weather, we all are very familiar with that! It is to provide you with guidance on winter tires and their benefits over all season tires. In cities like Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, and their surrounding areas, putting winter tires on your vehicle is not a precaution in case it snows, it’s a matter of fact that it will snow and with that comes slippery roads. Winter tires in Alberta can be highly valuable when it comes to keeping yourself and other drivers safe on the roads.

When living in a cold climate like Alberta seeing snow and ice as early as Halloween is the norm. Swapping your all season tires for winter tires is a beneficial way to help ensure safety while driving. All-Season tires commonly come with vehicles from factory and are relatively quiet with good fuel economy, but their tread is not meant to stand up to our freezing road conditions. The difference between winter tires and all season tires is that winter tires are going to have a better tread depth and pattern. Their rubber is able to remain more flexible in cold temperatures, while the deeper tread reduces the amount of compacted snow providing more grip. Winter tires also offer more traction on ice than all season tires.

Even if your vehicle has all-wheel drive or traction control systems and ABS, these can assist with vehicle control but will not fully make up for the difference that winter tires make. While all-wheel or four-wheel drive can benefit traction by sending power to all four wheels during acceleration, it cannot assist when braking becomes a factor. ABS can help prevent your brakes from locking, however if you begin to slide on ice this is where winter tires will perform better than all season.

When you are debating on whether or not to get winter tires in Alberta, consider that Alberta has long winters each year that include snow and ice. Though winter can be hazardous when it comes to driving, taking the proper steps to safe driving by installing winter tires on your vehicle is beneficial.
