How do you transfer car insurance from one car to another?

My best friend is giving me her car and she’s going to buy a new one. How do I transfer my car insurance to this new car?

Wow, what a nice friend! All you need to do is call your insurer to get your new car covered.
Here’s the process:
  • You give your insurer the details of your new car
  • Your insurer tells you the total cost of changing your coverage
  • You make your payment
  • You receive your new policy documents
You may see your policy rate go up or down depending on how your new car is rated compared to your old one. The premium can also change if you add additional protection to your vehicle, like comprehensive or collision coverage.
If you’re unhappy with the cost of your new policy, you can shop for a lower rate using the Jerry app. Jerry will provide you with the best quotes from the top insurance providers and take care of phone calls, paperwork, and renewals for your top pick so that you don’t have to.
