Users save an average of $489 a year when they buy a new insurance policy through Insurify.

How does Insurify find me the cheapest car insurance quotes?

Think of Insurify as your personalized, online insurance agent. Insurify's platform uses the latest in AI to match you with real, accurate, and bindable car insurance quotes based on your driver history and budget.

By Christopher G.
I had to make a payment over the phone as my payment was late and my policy was in jeopardy of cancelling on me within 15 days. I called and made this transaction with Courtney. after my transaction was made. (paid in full) I was given a confirmation number. In addition, I asked for a receipt either by email or regular mail. Courtney told me Merchants doesn't do that! So i again requested a simple receipt because I think when you give some entity over 1400 dollars you should get a receipt. RIGHT??? nope. I got threatened that she would cancel the payment and I can get a receipt from my agent... no fair and not a good way to do business. can i please have a receipt???

They claim to want fast and simple claims but when their drunk drivers hit you they blow you off and do everything in their power not to pay for the damages ! I've never been in my life met such awful people who just want to give you the run around ! No I'm being forced to pay a lawyer to go after their insurer or them to pay for the damages to my car !
