How was Jerry founded?
At some point, the quintessential American dream of owning a car turned into an expensive hassle.
Jerry’s founders were frustrated with the various requirements for buying and maintaining a car. From financing, licensing, and insuring to dealing with warranties and repairs. They decided it was time for a different approach—and the idea for Jerry was born.
Their goal is to create a super app that helps reduce the stacks of paper, long phone calls, and massive headaches to a simple click or swipe, all while reducing costs wherever possible.
And with a fantastic comparison shopping service, new roadside assistance offering, and auto refinance programs, their goals are well on their way to being realized!
Key Takeaway Car ownership and all it entails can be intimidating and painful—but Jerry makes it effortless.
What does Jerry do?
Jerry is building the first super app for car owners. And as your virtual assistant for all your car-related expenses, Jerry’s goal is to save you as much money and time as possible
Cars are the second-largest household expense, and Jerry wants to change that. We’ve been consistently saving customers time and money on shopping for car insurance—but now we’re using artificial intelligence and machine learning to make loans, repair, maintenance, and parking just as easy and inexpensive.
Jerry is already #1 app in the insurance category with 1 million customers—and we’re just getting started.
How do we do it?
Remember we said that Jerry has access to all the data, all the time? We cross-reference various databases—some public, some internal to Jerry—to pull the most accurate information on insurance plans and pricing.
This allows Jerry to offer multiple accurate quotes without requiring tons of personal information, phone calls, or in-person meetings.
We know you don’t want to spend time doing paperwork or fielding sales calls, so we make it quick and easy for you to get the information you need to choose the right insurance policy.
What makes Jerry different?
Three key things set Jerry apart from competitors:
- Speed. We get you over 50 competitive quotes in 45 seconds—and if you want to switch policies, we can set you up with a new plan in minutes.
- Scope of assistance. Ever been redirected to the provider’s site after receiving a quote? Not with Jerry. Jerry handles everything through the app, from purchasing your new policy to helping you cancel your old one to comparing rates when it’s time to renew.
- Respect for your privacy. Unless you want it, no human interaction is ever required—and we will never sell your information to anyone.
How secure is your data with Jerry?
In a word: very.
Jerry has multiple layers of protection to ensure your security. We store very little data—and what we do store is protected with end-to-end encryption and granular access control.
Jerry will never sell your data to any third parties. Your information is safe with us, without exception.
What does the Jerry logo represent?
The Jerry logo puts our customer front and center and demonstrates the protection that we provide. It also resembles a radar symbol, since we’re always on alert to find new ways to save you money!
And if that wasn’t enough, the logo is reminiscent of a steering wheel with the hub and wheel well, since everything we do revolves around you and your car.
Key Takeaway Jerry’s logo focuses on our customer, our level of attention, and cars as a whole.
