“First off, you need to buy a policy from a new car insurance company. Gather quotes from at least three to five providers for the coverage you want.
Once you find a quote you like, call the company to set up your insurance and pay your premium. Your new company should time the policy so it begins right as your old coverage ends.
Once your new policy is in place, call your old insurance company and tell them you would like to cancel your policy.
If you’re hesitant to switch plans or insurance providers because you’re worried about the work involved, don’t be. The free Jerry app does all the paperwork for you. You’ll never have to print out anything, go to the post office, or deal with long phone calls. Jerry handles it all. Really! “

Why should I keep full coverage on my Honda Pilot if my rates are already high?
"I currently have full coverage on my Pilot, but I'm considering dropping it due to my high premiums. I'm 20 and pay $2,000 a year for insurance. I know if I submit a claim, my insurance rates will increase even more. Is it worth even having full coverage?"
