Are car insurance quotes free?

You should never have to pay for a car insurance quote. Since auto insurance is so specific to each person, it would be impossible for companies to advertise a set price to take out a policy.

Does the color of your car affect your insurance cost?

While there are many factors about your car that can affect the rate you pay for insurance, the color isn't one of them. The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on your car tells the insurance company a lot about your vehicle, including the color, the country where it was built, and the plant where the vehicle was assembled.

Can I get car insurance without a home address?

Why didn't my insurance company give me a defensive driving discount for completing the course?

<span data-sheets-value="{&quot;1&quot;:2,&quot;2&quot;:&quot;Discounts vary by company, state, and situation so there is no guarantee that a carrier will provide a discount just from completing the course. Because taking a defensive driving course costs money, you always want to check with your comany to see if they offer a discount before wasting your money on something that won't provide any additional benefit on your rate.

Can't take car out of impound without proof of insurance

The only real solution in this case would be to purchase a basic auto policy as quickly as possible since the impound lot will not release the vehicle until you can prove that it is insured. Asking for the absolute minimum coverage will at least meet the requirement to take your car home.

<span data-sheets-value="{&quot;1&quot;:2,&quot;2&quot;:&quot;In the majority of instances, it is less expensive to add your child to your existing policy than getting separate coverage. This is mainly due to the fact that your child will not qualify for as many discounts on their own as they will by being added to your policy.
