Four Things To Know About Getting Car Insurance Fast


If you need a new car insurance policy quickly either because you just bought a new car or you are going to start driving after getting a license, you definitely want to know what the options are to obtaining a policy fast. Here are four things you should know:

  1. It's Slower in Person: First off, you should know that getting car insurance is much slower in person. Not only because you have to take time out of your day to go to the insurance company's office, but you probably also have to wait in a waiting room to be seen. If this is what you decide to do, be sure that you bring all of the information that you need, such as your social, driver's license, car information, and more. Without this, it's going to be a much longer process because all of this information will need to be gathered somehow to get your insurance policy activated. 
  2. It's Faster on the Phone: Calling the insurance company is going to be much faster than going in person, but still not as fast as it would be to just go online. The reason for this is that you might be put on hold. However, you don't have to worry about the drive there and you can have everything you need right in front of you. 
  3. It's Fastest Online: Finally, the best option is to just get an insurance policy online. There are absolutely no wait times for this and all the information you can just input yourself without there being any communication issues with the insurance agent. Once you're done, you should have an insurance policy activated and ready to be printed out or used through an app on your phone. 
  4. It's Even Faster to be Prepared: Basically, no matter what option you choose, you need to be prepared in order for the process to be as fast as possible. This includes having all the information you need, even including your bank account information to pay for the policy and set up automatic payments. You should also know what kind of insurance coverage you want so that everything is included on your policy right away. You should also know what you are able to afford to pay for the policy each month. 

When you know these four things about getting a car insurance policy quickly, you can choose an option that is going to ensure you are insured and able to get on the road instantly.

Health Insurance Haze: Clarifying The Policy Information

When I lost my job, I also lost my health insurance. I've never had to buy health insurance on my own before, so when I went to my insurance agent, I had no idea where to start. The coverage options, deductibles, co-pays, and premiums were confusing. I wasn't sure how to make sense of all of the tiers and doctor's networks. I created this site to help others who've never purchased health insurance before. The posts here are full of resources for insurance coverage, and I hope that it will help you to find the policy that's right for you.
