How can I add a car to my insurance policy?

My son just got a new car and we wanted to put his car on our policy. What's the easiest way to add a car to my insurance?

To add a car to your insurance policy, you can either call your provider, manage your policy online, or schedule an in-person meeting. As the insured party, you’re always in control of your policy, so you can add a new vehicle whenever you want.
Before you update your policy, make sure you have the necessary information:
  • Your policy number
  • Make, model, and year of your car
  • Vehicle identification number (VIN)
  • License plate number
When you add a new car to an existing policy, your rate will increase. But it may also make you eligible for a multi-car discount. Be sure to ask your provider about their discounts when you add your son’s car.
If you’d like to make sure your car insurance rate doesn’t spike, try Jerry. A licensed broker, the Jerry app helps you gather and compare competitive quotes from top insurance brands in minutes. Jerry can even help you buy a new plan and cancel your old policy! That way, you can always be sure you’re getting the best rate for the coverage you want.
