Can I get auto insurance on the same day that I'm getting my new Toyota Sienna?
The dealership says I'll need to provide proof of insurance when I pick up my van. What would be a good company? Can I get insurance on the day that I'm able to pick up my van?

“It is possible to get insurance on the same day that you’ll be getting your van. But it’s recommended that you shop for quotes before you head to the dealership to pick up your new ride, if possible.
To get insurance quotes, you’ll need to know the vehicle identification number (VIN) for your new Sienna. You should also confirm with the dealership that they don’t require you to carry any specific coverages, like comprehensive insurance and collision car insurance.
Aim to get at least three to five quotes, which you can do very easily online. Once you find the quote you want, remember to jot down the quote number.
Once you’re at the dealership and you’re ready to finalize the sale, you can call up your chosen company, provide them with your quote number, and buy your policy on the spot.
Which company is best for you depends on the type of coverage you need and your budget. Each carrier has their own coverages and policy terms. You’ll want to compare quotes to decide which one fits your needs best.
