MassDrive

About Us

MassDrive Insurance Group was founded with one simple goal:

Buying and selling car insurance should be easier for everyone.

We asked, what if a company offered consumers the utility and convenience of the big online, highly advertised insurance companies with the choice and service that make the traditional independent agent so vital?

That’s why we created MassDrive - to make the buying and selling of insurance in Massachusetts a breeze for consumers, insurance companies, and business partners. Today, we serve thousands of customers across the Commonwealth and are widely regarded as the fastest growing agency in the market.

We got so good at this in Massachusetts that we expanded into all fifty states with the launch of our comparison shopping platform in 2015.

How do we do it?

We are obsessed with customer service and our licensed insurance professionals and operations team always go the extra mile for our customers.

We sell insurance for the best insurance companies in the business in all fifty states.

Technology is core to our business. See for yourself on MassDrive.com or MyLifeProtected.com, get a quote for auto insurance on your mobile phone using SnapQuote™, or save some money next year via our Renewal Readiness™ program.
