Markel UK, which boasts over 20 years’ experience in offering business insurance for professionals, confirmed that Markel Direct would simplify the process of setting up business insurance, offering new product innovation and some online quotes in just 90 seconds, courtesy of its new website – www.markeluk.com

Markel Direct will offer clients in the logistics sector easy payment options. Customers will benefit from online documentation and a more streamlined approach to arranging business insurance than is currently available.

Key products available include cover for professional indemnity, employers liability, public and product liability (general liability), directors and officers liability, office buildings and contents and business interruption. Specialist policies for homeworkers and home based businesses are also available to buy online.

The Leeds based company, a division of A-rated Markel International, revealed the launch of Markel Direct would offer logistics businesses the opportunity to arrange specialist cover directly with Markel for the first time.

Steve Carroll, managing director of Markel UK, said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of Markel Direct today, which is a significant development for us and promises to assist those in the logistics industry looking to take out cover.

“Our aim in creating the new website is to enable customers to buy cover direct from us in a simple and straight-forward way. Setting up business insurance is often considered to be a complex and daunting process, so we wanted to assist customers with an easy to use website and the quickest quote turnaround in the industry.

“Markel Direct represents a fantastic opportunity for logistics businesses of all sizes, but particularly SMEs, to take advantage of our extensive range of products at competitive prices.”
