|Recent Questions||Do I need to put everyone in my household on my policy?|
It's usually recommended to add everyone who lives in the household on the same policy if it's likely they will be driving the insured car, and insurance companies generally require everyone in the household of driving age to be listed on the policy. But if the others in the household already have their own insurance and vehicles, this would be unnecessary.How many cars can I have on my progressive policy?
Hello, Most companies — including Progressive — will allow four cars per policy. Of course, it's always a good idea to check with your insurance company if you are unsure about whether or not your cars are covered.Why won't my insurance recognize or cover Tesla labor rates?
Each insurance company has different guidelines when it comes to how they handle claims and repairs. As long as they are following the guidelines agreed to within your policy documents, then they are meeting the requirements on their end, so refer back to your policy and check what's covered and what's not.I'm selling my car and canceling insurance. When I buy another car a few months from now, will I get higher rates for a lapse in coverage?
