Considering Auto Insurance When Buying a New Car

When looking for a new car do you consider the cost of auto insurance? Wise consumers do this, and you don’t even have to do any extra work to figure this out. Just call your agent at Giles & Iten Insurance serving Surprise, AZ, and the surrounding area. Ask the agent to give you a quote for the make, year, and models of the vehicles that you are thinking about buying.

Here are some reasons why this is such a good move on your part:

  • You will have a better idea of the total cost of owning the vehicle.
  • You will get adequate insurance coverage for your needs.
  • Your agent will be ready to issue a certificate of insurance immediately so you can drive the new car that you buy off the lot.

There are some bad things that can happen if you don’t get your auto insurance agent on board for a new car purchase that you are considering. One of them is getting stuck with having inadequate coverage and perhaps also paying too much for it.

In the excitement of buying a car, the salesperson who is finalizing the paperwork will ask you about auto insurance coverage. They cannot allow a car to drive off the lot without it. If you don’t tell them you already have an agent ready to issue it, they will offer insurance from possibly some company that you never heard of before. You may not have the time or even the interest in investigating anything about the insurance you are going to get.

The other potential problem is that the cost of auto insurance can be a very significant monthly expense for certain types of cars. This may mean that those models are considered a higher risk. They might be more frequently involved in accidents. They might be a model that thieves like to steal more often. For whatever reason, if the insurance premiums are higher for a car model that is similar to another car, you want to know why.
