Buying car insurance is an essential part of buying a car. If you are purchasing a vehicle or insurance for the first time, then it's important to know the ins and outs of the process.
As this video explains, the first step to buying car insurance is to obtain a copy of your credit report. Find out the minimum car insurance you are obliged to buy; it's a good idea to buy more liability insurance than your state requires. Consider whether you want to invest in add-ons, such as roadside assistance or extra medical coverage. Once you decide on a company, choose the highest deductible available so you can pay the lowest premium possible. It's a good idea to pay the entire premium up-front to spare yourself a monthly fee.
