How do you insure your first car?
I just graduated college, so I'm about to buy my first car. How do I get insurance for it?
That’s very exciting news, congratulations!
To get car insurance, the first step is finding a quote that makes sense for you. You can search on your own by reaching out to companies online, via phone, or in-person. Regardless of how you get quotes, you’re going to need a list of information to help find your rate. This list includes:
- Driver’s license
- Date of birth
- Marital status
- Education level
- Driving history
- Vehicle identification number (VIN)
- Vehicle’s date of purchase
- Type of coverage you require
Once you have all this information together and you’ve searched through your options, simply sign-up with the one you think is best and they’ll take you through the process. Once you’ve selected your policy, it shouldn’t take more than a day!
If the thought of these process makes you break out into a cold sweat, don’t worry! The Jerry app has made it easy! After providing you with a comprehensive cross-analysis of the best policies across providers, Jerry will handle the phone calls, paperwork, and renewals for your top pick so that you don’t have to. Jerry’s friendly agents are even available by text to answer any insurance related questions.
Best of luck on the roads!

How much is a car mirror?
My car mirror got damaged. I was parking on the street and forgot to push my mirror in and someone clipped it. No clue who did it, but I figure it’s such small damage that if it’s affordable (under $500), I’d rather not file a claim.

How do I buy a car with no title?
I want to rebuild a car with my kids; I have twins who are about ready to drive. We have a junkyard nearby with all these old cars. I was talking to the guy who works there, and a lot of the cars don’t have titles. Titles are an essential part of owning a car, I know, but how do I buy a vehicle that has no title?

How do I buy a car with a cosigner?
My credit is terrible, but I want a car and I can afford it. I just don't want to end up underwater due to the interest rate. My cousin said he'd cosign my car loan. He has much better credit than I do. How do I buy a car with a cosigner?
