Car Insurance for a New Vehicle

You have many considerations to make when buying a new car. Insurance is just one of them.

Whether you switch to a new auto insurance provider or transfer your existing insurance to your new car, ensuring that you have the right car insurance is an essential part of the process of purchasing a new vehicle.

Getting a Quote Before You Buy

The type of vehicle you drive has an effect on your car insurance rates, so getting a quote for the type(s) of cars you are considering can be a wise choice.

First, if you’re choosing between multiple vehicle types, getting quotes can help you make your decision (e.g., if one type will be much costlier to insure, you may choose the other).

Second, whenever you’re buying a new car, you need to reevaluate your coverage:

  • Your current provider may no longer be the most affordable provider for car insurance coverage you’ll need for your new vehicle.
  • Also, other providers may have additional products and offerings that better suit your new needs.

Finally, it’s smart to periodically check for car insurance quotes. You may be paying more than you need to if you’ve stayed with the same company for years without looking around at prices and discounts offered in the market.

Before you buy your new car, get at least 3-4 car insurance quotes for the type of vehicle you’re looking to buy so you’ll know what to expect.

What You’ll Need to Drive Your Car Off the Lot

Driving without car insurance coverage is illegal, so you’ll need to make sure you are covered before you drive your new car off the lot.

If you already have car insurance, you may need to adjust your coverage for your new vehicle. For example, you might be required to add comprehensive or collision coverage if you are taking out a loan on the car.

However, even if you need to adjust your insurance for your new car, your current policy may cover you for a short period of time after the purchase of a new vehicle.

Check your declarations page to be sure.

If you’re unsure whether you’ll be covered, provide the vehicle information to your car insurance company before you complete the purchase. Your agent should be able to let you know what you’ll need.

If you’ll be changing companies, make sure to find out exactly how long your current car insurance will extend, and make sure you have an exact start date for your new policy and end date for your old policy.
