Why is car insurance so expensive in Georgia compared to Florida?
I paid $100 a month in Florida. When I moved to Georgia and changed my policy address, my insurance company told me it was going to cost $300 a month for liability only. Why is my rate so much more expensive here?
“The main reason why your insurance may be more expensive in Georgia is that its state minimum car insurance requirements are significantly higher than Florida’s. When you changed your address, your policy’s coverage limits were adjusted to match Georgia’s minimum requirements.
The area you moved to could also be influencing your rate. If there are a lot of claims and accidents where you live, your insurance rate will reflect that.
If you’re not able to afford the new rate with your insurance company after changing your address, you should look at other carriers. You can request car insurance quotes online to see if there is a better rate available elsewhere.

"Do you need to know what car you are going to buy before getting approved for a car loan? "
"I need to buy a car but it has been years since I last bought a car and I really can’t remember the process. I think I had picked out the car first and let the dealer arrange for financing, but I do remember being shocked at the interest rate. This time around I would like to get my own financing to get a better deal. Do I still need to pick out the car before getting approved for a car loan?"
