How to switch car insurance providers?

I'm considering switching insurance providers. What steps do I need to take?

Answer
People switch car insurance providers for many different reasons. Here are some steps to follow when finding a new provider.
First, decide how much coverage you need. Every state will have a minimum coverage requirement. If you drive a car on loan, you’ll probably have to purchase collision and comprehensive insurance.
Then, get some quotes from different providers. By getting a quote from multiple insurers, you’ll make sure you’re getting the best price. The best way to shop for insurance is to use Jerry. Jerry will collect insurance quotes for you, making the process quick and hassle-free.
You’ll want to make sure that the company you choose has a good record. Check out the customer service history of the insurer you choose to learn how they handle customer complaints and claims.
Once you settle on a company, let your current insurer know that you’re changing your policy. Your insurer may offer a price match, so consider whether or not you’d stay with your current plan for a lower price.
If you use Jerry to find your quote, the app will help cancel your current insurance for you.
Finally, make sure your new policy starts right as your old policy ends. Driving without insurance is illegal, and you’ll also have to pay out of pocket for any accidents that happen during the lapse in coverage.
