How do I add a new vehicle to my existing car insurance policy?

I just bought a convertible for leisure driving on Sundays, but I still need to get insurance. I've only ever had one car before, so I'm not sure how to add my new car to my existing plan—how do I add another car to my policy?

“Congratulations on officially being a multi-vehicle owner! Typically, you can quickly and easily add a car by calling your insurance provider, or alternatively, through their website or mobile app.
You’ll need to provide the following information for your vehicle:
  • The year
  • The make
  • The model
  • The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
  • Your license plate number
  • Your auto insurance policy
Adding a vehicle to your policy is often a cheaper alternative than having separate policies for each of your vehicles, oftentimes because of multi-car discounts offered by your provider.
However, if you want to make sure that you’re getting the best deal possible on your coverage, try using Jerry. We’ll get you multiple customized quotes from different top-of-the-line providers so that all you have to do is pick the best plan for you and your cars. And if you do decide you want to switch plans or providers, we’ll help with that, too! That way, you can focus all your energy on getting out on the road.
Enjoy your Sunday drives!”
