What happens to my car insurance when I sell my Buick?
I'm going to buy a new car and I want to sell my old Buick. What happens to my insurance coverage once I find a buyer?
“Once you find a buyer and exchange the necessary paperwork with the new owner, it’s your responsibility to notify your insurance company that the Buick is no longer in your possession.
While you’re at it, you can add your new vehicle to your car insurance policy. Many insurance companies offer a grace period of seven to 30 days to add a new vehicle to your existing policy.”

Can I make a claim on my new Cadillac XT6 if it isn't added to my current policy?
The dealership said they would provide insurance for the first 10 days. A rock ended up cracking my windshield. I'm already insured with AAA and was going to wait to add my vehicle to my policy until the dealership's insurance ran out. Can I just add the car to my policy and submit a claim?

What happens if I add full coverage to my car the day after hitting a deer?
I hit a deer last night, just weeks after paying off my car. Because I had paid it off, I switched to liability. But now I'm thinking of switching the policy back to full coverage to avoid paying out of pocket. Can I do this?

Do I still need to call Allstate in an accident if it's not my fault?
"Do I need to call my insurance if I'm not at fault? Another driver ran a red light in Florida and hit my car from the side, so it was pretty clearly their fault. I plan to call their insurance company (Allstate) to pay for the damages."
