If I don't remember who I have for insurance, how can I check?

What is the fastest way to find out the name of your insurance company? I set up my insurance at the dealership and I am embarrassed to say that I wasn't paying any attention. I don't think I even have any insurance paperwork! How can I check who I’m insured with?

Buying a car at a dealership can be so hectic that oftentimes people aren’t aware of who their car insurance provider is or what the limits are. Don’t worry, though—this is easy to figure out! The first places you should look are your email and your bank statements.
Most insurance companies will have sent a set of ID cards to your email, and you will see the initial payment to the insurance company in your bank account.
If you don’t see this information, contact the dealer who was directly helping you. They would have needed to get a copy of the ID card before you drove off the lot.
Once you secure your policy information, take the time to review your policy coverage, especially the liability and collision coverage. Most of the time, people focus on the cost, as well as the affordability of their monthly loan and insurance payments during the purchase process, but not necessarily the coverage.
If you aren’t happy with your coverage or price, it is time to shop around. If you want to do this easily, give Jerry a try!
