How do I buy insurance for a new car?

I've only ever bought used cars before, but this year, circumstances have been good enough for me to start looking for a brand-new one. The only problem is that I have no idea how to buy insurance for a new car! How do I buy insurance for a new car, and where do I even begin?

Buying a new car is always exciting! To get insurance for your new ride, you’ll need to start off by choosing your make and model.
From there, you can:
  • Go to a free site like Jerry to instantly get insurance quotes from multiple different providers.
  • Choose a provider and a policy.
  • Make sure that the start date of your insurance policy is the same day that you plan to finalize the sale of your new car so you can drive it home!
