Can I buy car insurance before purchasing a car?

I'm going to buy a new Toyota, but not for another month or so. Can I get the insurance beforehand?

Yes! It’s a great idea to get your auto insurance policy set up before purchasing your vehicle, as long as you have all the required information for the new vehicle. You’ll want the start date of the insurance policy to coincide with the day you are finalizing the purchase of your new ride.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
