How long does it take to switch car insurance?

I want to switch my car insurance policy; I don’t think I’m getting the best deal right now, but I really don’t want to spend all day doing it. How long does switching your car insurance provider usually take?

Great question! The times it takes to switch car insurance companies depends on how you cancel and how you sign up with a new provider. Typically, though, it takes 15-30 minutes to cancel your policy, while signing up with a new provider can take as little as 15-60 minutes.
Using the Jerry app can cut those times in half. Jerry is your one-stop shop for shopping, signing up, and canceling your car insurance—we’ll get you personalized quotes from over 50 top insurers in seconds, so that all you need to do is pick the plan that works best for you. Using these quotes, you can decide what kind of policy you need and your budget.
Once you choose a policy, Jerry can sign you up and help you cancel your old policy. If your current company allows third parties to be involved, then there’s no more work for you to do. If not, then Jerry will help you through your cancellation process. This way, you don’t have to shop around or cancel all by yourself, and you can rely on our agents every step of the way.
Best of luck with switching!
