If you’ve just purchased a new car, first thing’s first: congratulations! Car ownership is one of the cornerstones of the American dream and you’ll be cruising the roads, wind blowing through your hair, before you know it. If you want to learn how to insure a new car in Massachusetts or add an additional car, just know that Plymouth Rock is here to help. Just give us a call or contact your Plymouth Rock agent directly and we will update your Massachusetts policy accordingly.
If you’re in the market for a brand new car but haven’t pulled that proverbial trigger yet, there are a few key things you should know:
- Some types of cars are naturally more expensive to insure than others, based on things like their overall cost, safety features, the actual cash value to be paid by the insurance company in the event of a total loss, the rate at which certain models are stolen more than others and other factors. Researching the cost of insuring a specific make and model BEFORE buying is one of the best ways to save money on insurance coverage – without skimping on the scope of that coverage itself. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, otherwise known as the IIHS, is a great resource for identifying car models that generally cost less to insure. You can visit their official website right here.
- If you’re looking to save additional money when adding a new vehicle to your current policy, be sure to look for any discounts that are available to you. You can save by bundling your auto insurance and homeowners insurance policies together, for example. Likewise, with Plymouth Rock, you can get discounts for safety features like anti-theft devices. We also reward drivers with clean driving records.
- If you’re planning on financing or leasing your car, it’s likely that your lender or leasing company in Massachusetts will require you to carry collision and comprehensive coverage.
