Making a move to another state is never easy. Packing up for a new adventure is an exciting time, but there are always details you’ll likely forget. Probably not top of mind, for example, your car insurance. If you’ve just moved to Florida, we’ve got a few tips that you’ll need to know about your out-of-state car insurance policy.
Make sure you're covered
Most of the time, you typically have between 30-90 days to register your vehicle in your new state. This period is perfect for shopping around with an independent insurance agent in Central Florida for a new policy. During this time, do not cancel your old policy until you have a new one. You should never drive without insurance, as it is illegal and incredibly dangerous if you were to get into an accident.
Your policy amount might change
Depending on where you move, your new insurance policy can fluctuate in price, even if you stay with the same provider. This is where working with an independent insurance agent really can benefit you. An independent agent, like me, can find a reputable company and get you the best coverage at the most competitive price. On top of that, if your rate goes up in the future, you just ask us to shop around, and we’ll do the work for you all over again.
Register your vehicle last
The last step is registering your vehicle. To register a vehicle in the state of Florida, your insurance policy and registration will need to match. So, don’t try to register your vehicle until everything is settled with your insurance after your move.
