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
  • Address
  • Occupation
  • 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.
