Your help has been invaluable in this early period of life in NZ and I thank you for that. – Karl, Whenuapai

My wife and I have known Shai Patel, of Insure NZ, for about six years. During that time he has always “gone the extra mile” for us. He has consistently given us excellent advice and been highly professional.

It was my wife’s suggestion to take out mortgage protection to cover loss of income due to illness, as well as life insurance. If it was left up to me, we would not have done so and would have regretted it. Fortunately, we have not had to use the life insurance, but it has given us peace of mind.

We have had to use our mortgage protection twice. The bottom line is we would have lost our home if we didn’t have this policy. On the first occasion, I suffered a six-month illness and was hospitalised for about two months. The money, of course, was welcome and essential. On top of that, Shai took all of the stress out of the claim process during a dreadful time. He came to our home and gave my wife advice on completing the claim forms and liaised with the insurance company on our behalf. His hard work and diligence ensured the whole claim process went smoothly and in a timely fashion. Having a policy is one thing, having Shai – as an expert on hand to help – was wonderful. Having the policy enabled us to get back on our feet without worrying about the financial issues of me being unemployed – and unemployable for some time – due to illness. Shai was also there for us when my wife underwent major surgery followed by a lengthy period of rehabilitation – again, without a job to go back to.

With Shai, you don’t just get a product – you get the right policy for you with a professional service and support when this is needed.

I would heartily recommend the policies we took out through Shai. And we cannot speak highly enough of Shai, his professional and understanding approach, and his knowledge of policies and ability to provide impartial advice of what approach to take. – Darren, of Auckland


I don’t usually have much time for insurance agents but you are certainly a level above all the others I have encountered on my journey through life and I would have no hesitation referring anyone I know to you. – Caroline, West Auckland


My husband and I have just finished putting in place new life and mortgage protection insurance. The insurance broker that we have used, Shai Patel (Insure NZ) has been excellent.  He explained things to us very clearly, did not try to over sell products to us and has been very accomodating and efficient in the processing of our applications.  – Vonja, East Auckland
