“When adding an additional vehicle to a policy, you are likely to see a rate increase. How much your rate will increase will depend on the coverage you select.
If your new vehicle only needs liability car insurance, your rate will be lower than adding full coverage.
The type of vehicle can also determine your rate. A newer vehicle often will cost more to insure.
However, many car insurance companies do offer multi-vehicle discounts. By adding another vehicle to your policy, you may be eligible for an additional discount.
To find out what your new rate will be, you should reach out to your current carrier. They’ll be able to provide you with a quote that includes your new vehicle.”
