How do I get car insurance in Florida?

I'm moving to Florida from Georgia. I've never had to get car insurance in another state. How would I get insurance in Florida?

Answer
You have a lot to think about when moving, especially when crossing state lines. To make things easier, thinking about things like car insurance now is a smart move and takes one more thing off your plate.
Although every state has different car insurance requirements, obtaining insurance is basically the same process everywhere, including Florida.
If you currently have insurance, contact your insurance company. Many major insurance companies operate in multiple states, so you may be able to stay with the same company.
Next, gather quotes from other companies that offer insurance in Florida. While you may be getting a good rate with your insurer in Georgia, you may not have the same rate when you move.
Since location is a significant factor when companies determine premiums, shopping around can ensure you get the best price possible. Reach out to major companies like Allstate and Travelers, as well as smaller companies in Florida.
If you’d like help switching insurance companies, go to Jerry. Jerry can easily find you the best rates with top insurance providers in Florida. Once you find a quote or policy you like, you can purchase it. Since you’re shopping in advance, you can set your effective date to the date you plan on moving, ensuring you have one less thing to worry about!
