“Car insurance carriers need to know your mailing address and the location where you garage your vehicle. If you receive your mail at your sister’s home and park your vehicle there, insurance carriers would not have an issue with you providing your sister’s address.
However, car insurance is often rated based on where you live. If you’re claiming to garage your vehicle somewhere and it’s actually not at that location, that is considered to be providing false information. Carriers would have a right to cancel your policy based on this. It could also impact your coverage if you file any claims or get into an accident.
You can reach out to insurance carriers to find out what their policies are. Some may have specific policies that cover those who often live in their car or follow a nomadic lifestyle. While it may not be the most affordable option, it would ensure that your vehicle is properly covered. “

Why is my employer making it so difficult for me to file an uninsured motorist claim?
"I'm a delivery driver and have a commercial policy through my employer. I also have a personal auto policy since I drive my own vehicle. I was hit by an uninsured driver and they were at fault. I've submitted a claim through my employer's insurance, which covers uninsured drivers. I don't understand why the entire process has been so slow and difficult, as it seems like I should be covered for the damages. "
