Insurance when buying a used car

Before Buying   A Used Car

It's a good idea to get a car insurance quote before buying a used car so you have an estimate of how much it will cost to insure. In nearly every state, you'll need to provide proof of insurance before taking a used vehicle home from the dealership. If you don't have insurance, you won't be able to drive it off the lot   

After Buying   A Used Car

If you already have insurance,  add the used car to your existing policy. You don't need a separate car insurance policy for your used car, even if your existing policy only covers new vehicle(s). Simply inform your insurance company that you bought a used car and would like to add it to your policy. 

The cost of used car insurance

Insurance rates for used  cars will vary based on several factors including: 

• Your location 

• State minimum car  insurance requirement

• Your age

• The car's make and model

New car  versus   Used Car

Since used cars are generally worth less than new ones,  they can be cheaper to repair  or replace. However, car insurance rates depend less on whether the car is used or new and more on the details of the vehicle and  your policy.
