You just sold your vehicle, and now you realize
that hey, I still got my car insurance policy, and what do I do? My name is James, with The
Resurgence Group. We’re a full service insurance agency. We specialize in car insurance. The
first thing that I would suggest is that call your agent, or the carrier, or customer service,
and explain to them what’s just happened. It all depends on when you’re actually getting
rid of the vehicle, and when you’re turning the plates back into the motor vehicle, because
the one thing that you don’t want to do is have a car, or sell that vehicle and give
the plates away. Many people do that these days and they don’t realize the risk they’re
running, because if that person does not go out and get their own car insurance or their
own plates they could get into an accident and you could potentially have an exposure
there because it’s your plate and your car insurance that still are attached to that
vehicle. So, I would suggest when you’re sellin’ the vehicle immediately get your plates off
that vehicle, and immediately call your agent and cancel that policy; very simple to do.
My name is James. I’m with The Resurgence Group. We do this every day for our clients.
And what I would suggest is get with your agent, or an agent in your neighborhood and
just explain to them that you’re lookin’ to cancel your insurance, and they can do it
right there over the phone, or right there in the office.
