How does someone buy a car?
I want to buy a car, but I don't really know where to begin. What do I need to do?
“Buying a new car may seem difficult, but it’s easy if you follow a few key steps!
First, you’ll want to decide how much you can spend on a car and what your budget will be. You’ll also want to consider how much you can afford to pay monthly if you need a car loan.
Once you’ve looked at your finances, look for vehicles that match your budget. Visit various dealerships to determine what your options are and test drive each vehicle.
After finding a vehicle and financing, be sure to look over your contract before signing. Review the terms and conditions and ensure you’re comfortable with the agreement.
Finally, you’ll need car insurance. Most dealerships require car insurance before taking your new car home, so you’ll want to get insurance first. At this stage of the process, using the Jerry app can make the final hurdle quick and easy. Download the app to compare rates from over 50 insurers at the touch of a button.”

Will my liability insurance cover me if I caused $1,000 worth of damage to another vehicle while driving a U-Haul?
I rented a U-Haul. I have liability insurance on my personal car, so I didn't get U-Haul's coverage. While moving, I hit someone's bumper on a parked car, causing $1,000 worth of damage. Can I file a claim with my personal insurance?
