How can I check on my car insurance?

I traded in my car on a whim last week, and the dealership helped me update my policy. It all happened so fast that I don’t really know what coverage I have. How can I check on my car insurance?

Car purchases are always hectic, and it is very common to leave the dealership unsure of what is going on with your car insurance policy. Don’t worry; it will be simple to sort out!
The easiest thing to do will be to check your car insurance online or on your insurance provider’s app. Once you’ve accessed your account, you will find all of your coverages listed on the declarations page. Since you traded in your car, the dealer most likely kept the coverage the same.
Here are the coverages you will want to double-check:
Make sure your comprehensive and collision deductibles are at a limit that is comfortable for you. If you have trouble understanding your coverage or making any changes, call your insurance agent directly.
Anytime you make significant life changes, like getting a new car, it is good to evaluate your insurance and make sure the coverage and price still work well for you.
