Where do I start if I'm looking to get my own auto insurance for the first time on a leased car?

I have been on my parents' policy for the last four years. I am going to pick up my new lease tomorrow and I am ready to get my own insurance. Where do I start? How do I know I am getting the best price?

Answer
“Congratulations on your new car! Buying insurance for the first time can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be.
Since you are leasing the car, you will want to have the name and address of the leasing company; they will need to be listed on your insurance policy.
Leases also usually require liability coverage limits of 100/300/50, as well as comprehensive coverage and collision coverage with deductibles no greater than $1,000. This is standard, so any insurance carrier can meet these needs.
These days, you can get car insurance quotes online and on your phone.
