Can I garage a car in Connecticut when I live in Brooklyn and still find insurance?
I bought a classic car. But living in Brooklyn, it's not cost-effective to garage or park a car that I only drive on occasion. I want to leave it at a garage in Connecticut with my in-laws. Can I get insurance in this situation?
“The crux of the issue is where your car is registered. If it’s registered in Connecticut, you shouldn’t have any problems getting car insurance to garage it there.
If your car is registered in New York and garaged in Connecticut, you might run into some problems. Most insurance companies will only insure you in the state that the car is registered.
Since you rarely drive the vehicle, you might be able to get away with it. The best idea is to call a few insurance companies and see what they say.”

If rental cars already come with state-minimum liability insurance, why should I buy additional coverage?
"I am going to rent a car this weekend for a trip. I do not have insurance right now, but my credit card will provide $75,000 worth of coverage for damage to the rental car. The rental contract stated that the state minimum for liability coverage is already included. If so, why are they trying to get me to buy more coverage? "
