How do you swap insurance from one car to another?

What's the best way to swap car insurance from one car to another? I am buying a new car, and I want to transfer policies as soon as I can.

Answer
Swapping insurance to a new car should be pretty easy, so long as you communicate with your provider. To swap insurance, just call your insurer and give them:
  • The year, make, and model of your new car
  • The odometer reading on your new car
  • Your new car’s vehicle identification number (VIN)
  • The registration or title
If you use an agent to swap policies, remember to have them remove your old car from the policy when they add your new car. If you’d rather swap policies online, you can do so from your provider’s website by adding your new car and then removing your old one.
