Changing the way insurance is purchased


About Us

The retail insurance market is changing rapidly; increasingly competitive, more pressure on price, less profit, skyrocketing cost of customer acquisition. That’s just today, what will the market look like when personal lines premiums drop because cars can avoid collisions and homes can stop water and fire damage before it happens.

At BROKERLIFT we believe that competing for tomorrow’s customer will require an advanced digital presence, one that revolves around the ability to sell insurance products online.


We’ve created a platform that can quickly enable your Brokerage to merchandise and sell a variety of insurance products to any customer at any time through your existing website.

Please reach out; we’d be happy to set up a demonstration!
