Do car loan companies contact your employer?
I want to be prepared and notify my employer if a car loan company is going to be contacting them. Is this likely to happen?

Yes, loan companies usually contact your employer during the application process to verify both your income and the date you started working. This is necessary because even though employment information does appear on your credit report, it may be out of date or incomplete.
Most employers require verification calls to go either to their HR department or to a third-party company that provides the requested information. Less formal companies may direct these calls to the employee’s supervisor. This can cause problems for the company, though, so most require HR involvement for consistency, accuracy, and privacy reasons.

Can I drop car insurance on one of my vehicles if my other vehicle has coverage?
"I have a financed vehicle with full coverage, plus liability, uninsured motorist, and property damage coverage. My other vehicle is significantly older and only worth about $1,000. I have the same coverage on it as my financed vehicle, except for the full coverage. Can I drop all insurance on the older vehicle since I have the same coverage levels on my financed vehicle? Does my insurance follow me or does it follow the car? "
