Shopping for any kind of insurance is a complete pain. But what if there were a way to get rate comparisons emailed to you and no unwanted phone calls from pushy agents?

Too many people don’t shop for insurance of all kinds because they’re afraid of having to deal with pushy salespeople. Or they don’t want to deal with the reality that they will die. Or they think insurance is too complicated. So they do nothing … and leave themselves or their families unprotected.

That's where a website like PolicyGenius.com comes in.

PolicyGenius makes shopping for insurance easy

With PolicyGenius.com, you do a brief registration and then you answer a questionnaire that takes about 3 or 4 minutes. Some of the questions can be pretty intrusive, but you want to answer honestly so you can get the right quotes.

What kind of insurance can you get quotes for? Level term life insurance, disability insurance, renter’s insurance, and even pet insurance!

You can have quotes emailed to you and nobody will ever call you, unless you want them to.

With disability insurance, did you know you’re three times more likely to become disabled than die during your working lifetime?

And on the subject of renter’s insurance, it’s among the most under-purchased products there is. Every winter, there will be these apartment fires because of space heaters and then the word comes — no one had renter’s insurance. So the Red Cross has to find a place for people to live temporarily. That scenario could avoided with renter’s insurance.

Some landlords will require you to have renter’s insurance, though that’s very rare. The policy you get must have replacement value coverage for your belongings and relocation assistance should your place become uninhabitable. Don’t leave yourself unprotected!

The platform PolicyGenius has developed for getting quotes is really good. It’s light years ahead of the insurance industry at this point.

So if you know you should be protecting family and you’re looking for quotes, check out this service.
