Preparing for a Home Insurance Quote

Requesting a Car Insurance Quote

Before you sign the paperwork for that sporty dream car or hand over cash for a used second vehicle, you need the required auto insurance to drive away legally. An accurate insurance quote beforehand can also help you decide whether to buy that particular vehicle, or not, according to the bottom line of monthly costs. Are you adding a new or teenage driver to your policy? Getting a new car insurance quote is a smart idea.

 Here are some facts to have on hand to help our insurance broker provide you with the best, most accurate quote:

  • Make, model, year, special features, and VIN for vehicle 
  • Details, including dates, about each driver’s record:
    • Last 3 years for violations and/or licence suspensions
    • Last 10 years for motor vehicle collisions and accidents
  • Average distance you intend to drive the vehicle annually
  • Use of vehicle for business or personal use
