Coverage for new cars varies by insurance company. Most will cover the new car for 10-15 days from the date of purchase. If you traded in a car, the coverage on that car determines what coverage you have on the new car. If you did not have comprehensive and or collision coverage, than the new car will not automatically have it.If the new car is an additional car, the broadest coverage on the other cars will determine the coverage on the new car.When you call your insurance agent or company you will then tell them what coverages you want on the new car. You can ask for quotes for various deductibles to determine what you want to buy.If you do not call your insurance agent or company within the time frame determined under your policy then there is no insurance on the new car. It is very important to call your insurance company promptly when you get a new car. Since most companies have 24/7 phone access you should not have a problem getting the new insurance started.
