How do I get auto insurance if I am a forest ranger without a permanent address?
I am a full-time forest ranger and my employer provides lodgings when I am on duty. When I am off duty, I stay with my parents, which is usually a week a month. Now that I am shopping for auto insurance, I have no idea what to use as my address.
“You do need to have a permanent address in order to purchase insurance. There are two questions that need to be answered here:
- Where do you keep your car most of the time?
- Where do you receive your mail?
Understandably, a cabin high up in the woods might not be an address that the post office can deliver to. If this is the case, do you get your mail at your parents’ house? If so, your insurance carrier may be able to use their address.
For this unique situation, get in touch with a local car insurance broker in your area. Once they are familiar with your situation and needs, they can work with a carrier to find the appropriate coverage for you.

Why would another auto insurance company offer me a lower rate than what I'm currently paying?
I'm with Allstate right now and I requested quotes from other companies. There are a few quotes that are $200 less than what I'm currently paying. Am I being overcharged? Is there something I'm missing?

"I have always loved the C-10 Chevy trucks of the 1970s. However, they’ve gone way up in value lately and I would have to get a car loan to buy one. Another issue is finding one worth buying and getting the loan in a timely manner. How is this usually handled, and what is the best way to go about financing a classic truck? "
