Do I need car insurance before I buy a car, and what is the best insurance company in Washington?
I'm moving to Washington and will be buying a new car. I'm not sure what car I want and don't know if I'm supposed to get insurance before or after I decide. I also want to find the best and most affordable insurance company for coverage.
“To buy car insurance, you will need to know what vehicle you will be purchasing. While you can shop around prior to buying a vehicle, knowing the make and model gets you a more accurate quote from car insurance companies.
Most car dealerships also require that you provide them with proof of insurance prior to going home with your new vehicle. You should be able to buy insurance on the same day that you are purchasing the vehicle. Just call your carrier while you’re at the dealership and secure your coverage.
As for the best and more affordable car insurance company in Washington, I don’t have a clear-cut answer for you here. Rates vary significantly among carriers and they’re heavily influenced by your personal profile. To find the best deal, you have to shop around and get multiple quotes.
