You'll need to contact your insurance company and provide them with your new address. Once they have updated your records, they will send you a new insurance card with your new address. In most cases, you'll also need to update your DMV registration. Once you have purchased a new policy, you can contact your insurance company and cancel your old policy.
If you stay with your current insurer, it will automatically cancel your old policy once it issues the new one. In most cases, the easiest way to change the address of your car insurance policy is to contact your car insurance provider. A representative from your car insurance company will write down the information and make the necessary changes to your policy. Your location, where you park your car every day, is a key factor in determining the price of your car insurance coverage.
Cities also tend to have higher crime rates, but changing direction from anywhere with lower crime rates to higher crime rates can affect your car insurance. Depending on your car insurance provider, you can also update your personal information on the web or through a company-specific smartphone app. Your car insurance could increase or decrease depending on several factors, including the claim history of your new area. Each insurance company combines this information differently to help generate optimal premiums for them, so you don't usually see exactly the same rates at all insurers in an area.
