How do I get car insurance in New York?

I'm getting ready to move to New York, and I need to get new car insurance, since my current coverage doesn’t meet the state minimum. How do I do that?

Congrats on the move! I’m happy to say that getting car insurance is usually a pretty simple process, although it can take a bit of time.
The easiest way to get a new car insurance policy is by using the Jerry app. We’ll get you customized quotes from over 50 top insurers, so that all you have to do is choose the plan that works best for you. (And if you find one you like, we’ll even help you switch!)
If you’d rather find your policy on your own, figure out your coverage needs and start shopping. Some insurers will give quotes online, but others will require that you call them directly to get a price quote.
When you compare different companies, don’t just look at pricing; check customer satisfaction ratings to make sure other people are happy with the service provided by that insurer. Once you’ve found a policy you like, go ahead and buy it. Just be sure to cancel your old insurance first, and you should be set!
Congrats again, and good luck with the move!
