Why did my auto insurance double in Oklahoma after moving from Virginia?
I drive a 2016 Nissan Sentra. I just moved from Virginia to Oklahoma, and my car insurance nearly doubled. Currently, I have full coverage with a $500 deductible. What gives?
“Even if you’re a great driver, it’s not always you that’s the problem. Over 13% of drivers in Oklahoma are uninsured compared to just 10% in Virginia.
Though three percent may not seem like a a big difference, from the insurer’s risk perspective, it’s problematic. This is most likely the reason why your insurance rates have nearly doubled: risk.
Your new zip code could also be worrying to your insurance company. Maybe your new neighborhood has higher rates of crime, accidents, or natural disasters.
If you want to save money on car insurance, the Jerry app is a good place to start. A licensed broker, Jerry does all the hard work of finding the cheapest quotes from the top name-brand insurance companies and buying new car insurance. Jerry will even cancel your old policy for you.”
