How do you switch car insurance companies?
How do you switch from one insurance company to another? I don't like the coverage on my current car insurance policy and want to go with a new company.
“If you’d like to switch car insurance companies, you’ll first want to find a company that you like.
To do this, you can request car insurance quotes online to find a policy and coverages that best fit your needs. You’ll want to shop around with a few different insurance providers to make sure you’re getting the best rate.
Once you select a new policy and provider, you’ll want to inform your current insurance company that you’ll be switching. Although you can cancel an insurance policy at any time, be aware that some companies charge cancellation fees if you end your policy midterm. So you may want to wait until your current policy is about to expire to make the switch.
After informing your current insurance company, you can purchase your new policy. Depending on the company, they may offer to cancel the old policy for you. If not, you’ll want to cancel directly with your current insurance company. Just be sure to wait to cancel until you’ve started your new policy, as you don’t want a lapse in insurance.
The Jerry app makes shopping around for new insurance easier than ever. Jerry can gather competitive quotes from over 50 top insurers in under a minute. Swapping is just as effortless. Jerry takes care of all the paperwork and phone calls and even helps to cancel your old policy on your behalf—oh, and it’s free!”

If my Nissan 370Z was hit by another motorist, will their insurance company give me the check or give it to the repair shop?
I was in an accident in my Nissan 370Z when I was hit by a driver not paying attention. It did extensive damage to my vehicle. However, I want to get some estimates rather than use the other driver's repair shop. I currently own the vehicle. Will their insurance give me the check so I can choose where it's fixed?

Do I need gap insurance for my new 2021 Mercedes GLC300?
Should I buy gap insurance? I recently got a 2021 Mercedes. The purchase price was $49,000 and my loan is for $33,000. I was offered gap insurance through the dealership but declined because I didn’t think I needed it. But now I’m wondering... what would happen if the vehicle was totaled?
