Toronto, Ontario – A ‘hard’ insurance market means two things� clients worried about getting fast, appropriate coverage as well as brokers working overtime to look after their needs. Not even the best of brokers can add more time to their day. Therefore, it becomes even more critical to use effective tools that make doing business with insurers easier and faster. That’s where Markel’s

I-QUOTE comes in. I-QUOTE is a new Internet quote service available to Markel and non-Markel brokers alike, allowing them to submit trucking business directly on-line, for accounts with 9 trucks or less.

I-QUOTE was launched in November of 2002 and has quickly become the preferred way of doing business for many brokers. The reasons are simple.
