One of the most uncomfortable parts about shopping for insurance is having to deal with pushy salespeople.

Just ask Brad Darwin, who tried shopping around for insurance on his own before he found PolicyMe.

“Most providers or brokers weren’t any help,” he says. “They all seemed more interested in making the sale than actually helping me understand the process and working with me to determine what I really needed.”

With PolicyMe, you won’t have to worry about feeling pressured into anything you’re not comfortable with.

“PolicyMe explained every step of the way, had an excellent quiz to help me determine how much coverage I needed, and wasn’t afraid to make recommendations about what I didn't need and why.”

If you’re concerned that applying for a life insurance policy will take a lot of time and effort, don’t be — a lot of first-time PolicyMe users are shocked by how fast and simple the process is.

For example, Lauren Hopkins always felt like she was too busy to sit down and apply for a policy.

“Life insurance has been on my to-do list for years but I could never get around to meeting with an agent,” she says. “I just never seemed to have the time with three small kids and a full-time job.”

But then her husband heard about PolicyMe and they decided to bite the bullet and give it a shot.

“I couldn’t believe how easy it was,” Lauren says. “It truly was effortless! The customer support is excellent and the text updates along the way were so helpful. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for life insurance.”
