Do insurance companies provide coverage for options beyond the standard trim of a car?
My friend just did some cool customizations to his car and I kind of want the same thing for my car. Will insurance cover that?
Most car insurance companies offer the option to include customizations that go above and beyond the standard for your vehicle in your coverage.
With that said, adding these customizations to your insurance will raise your premium slightly. However, not telling your insurance provider about any mods you get may result in not being able to file a claim if you get in an accident.
It’s important to note that some mods are illegal depending on which state you live in. Always do your research before making any modifications to your vehicle, because what may be fine in one state may cause you problems in another.
If you want to guarantee that your mods are covered in your policy without paying a high premium, consider using Jerry to find a better deal without having to sacrifice your customizations. Jerry is a free app that compares quotes from 50 top providers to save you time and money.

Should I use my preapproval rate of 2.79% to negotiate a price with the dealer?
I went to a dealer and they offered me a financing rate of 9.49%, which I found unacceptable. I then went to my bank and they gave me a rate of 2.79%. Should I use the bank interest rate as a bargaining tool to get a lower price on the car, or should I just accept the rate as a discount on the car?
