How do I insure a new car on the weekend?

My dealership said I can come pick up my car tomorrow. It's the weekend and I don't have insurance yet. How can I get insurance on the weekend?

Answer
“While most car insurance offices won’t likely be open on Saturdays and Sundays, it doesn’t mean you’re out of luck.
If you need to insure a new car on the weekend, you should be able to purchase a new policy online or by phone. Most major car insurance companies offer online services, as well as extended customer service hours on Saturdays and/or Sundays.
The easiest way to insure your new car is by requesting car insurance quotes online. The Jerry app can help! In less than a minute, Jerry will gather quotes from up to 50 top providers and deliver them straight to your phone—for free.
By requesting quotes online, you can see what the cost of insuring your new car will be. You’ll also be able to shop around and compare multiple quotes to ensure you’re getting the best rate for the coverage you need.
To provide an accurate quote, car insurance companies will need:
  • Your full name
  • Date of birth
  • Your new vehicle’s VIN or vehicle identification number
  • Address
  • Social Security number
  • Type of coverage you require
With this information, you should be able to purchase a quote directly from an insurance company’s website or app. If you have any questions about coverage or policies, you can also call the company’s customer service department. A customer service agent should be able to answer your questions and also issue you a new policy.”
