How can I keep my car insurance if I don't have a permanent address?
My car insurance company is cancelling my policy because I don't have a permanent address. I currently am moving around to different places within Oregon. Can I use a PO box or a friend's address on my car insurance policy?

“Car insurance carriers require that the garaging address on your policy reflects where you garage your vehicle at least 51% of the time. If your vehicle is garaged at your friend’s house most of the time, insurance carriers will have no issue with you listing their address.
If this isn’t true, you would be committing insurance fraud by listing their address. If you’re in an accident or your car is damaged, your insurance company could deny your claim.
As you start looking into new insurance carriers, be honest with them. Every carrier is different. Requesting car insurance quotes online is a great way to find an affordable price and learn more about the offerings from various insurance companies.
One option could be updating your garaging address every time you move. While it may seem like a hassle, it would prevent your insurance from being canceled or a claim denial. “
