Secure your car with BrokerLink’s car insurance

According to Statistics Canada, Markham is the most diverse community in Canada. This means there is no “one size fits all” approach to car insurance in Markham. The coverage you will need depends on your unique circumstances. A broker will go over all of your options with you, and will take the time to explain everything.

Enjoy freedom from worry

These days, it’s easier than ever to go online and find insurance in a matter of seconds. However, without the advice of an expert, it can be difficult to know whether you have the right coverage. If you go with an insurance broker, you’ll have an insurance expert who takes the time to get to know you and ask all the right questions. You’ll walk away with confidence, knowing if an accident does occur, you and your loved ones won’t have to stress about insurance.

Compare competitive rates from BrokerLink

Some people don’t have a full understanding of the difference between an insurance broker and an insurance agent. Insurance agents work for one insurance company and can only sell that company’s insurance. Insurance brokers are independent, and can sell policies from different insurance companies. Here are a few advantages of going with a broker:

  • Brokers are independent. That means we work for the customers, not for the insurance companies. We can give you completely unbiased advice at any stage of the insurance process: when you’re looking to buy, getting ready to renew or going through a claim.
  • Brokers do the shopping for you. As brokers, we have easy access to different insurance companies and their rates. On your own, it can be really time consuming to visit different websites or call around to all the different insurance companies. We can do that work in just a few minutes, giving you a variety of competitive quotes to choose from.
  • Brokers know all the ins and outs of insurance. That means we have the inside scoop on discounts and promotions. Which means going with a broker saves you not only time but money as well!

Should I get a Highway 407 ETR transponder?

Many of our customers who are looking for car insurance in Markham ask us for our opinion on the Highway 407 ETR transponder. For those who need an explainer:

A transponder is a small electronic device you attach to the inside of your windshield behind the rear-view mirror. With a transponder, your tolls on Highway 407 are calculated electronically and applied to your account. Those who drive on Highway 407 without a transponder are charged using a camera that recognizes license plates.

Is a transponder worth it?

There is a monthly or annual fee associated with the transponder, plus an additional charge per kilometre. The cost of taking the 407 can add up pretty quick. But let’s face it: sometimes the thought of sitting in traffic for hours after a long day of work is just too much.

If you take the 407 more than six times per year, you will save money with a transponder. If you prefer to save your money, try to avoid rush hour, and save the 407 trips for special occasions.
