moving house: new home? new state? new auto insurance?

Whether you're moving across town or across the country, you'll need to inform your auto insurance company of your new address. And in some cases, you may even want to adjust your auto insurance coverage levels so that you're adequately protected in your new location.

Change of address

It's a good idea to let your auto insurance company know about your change of address as soon as possible. Your auto insurance company may adjust your premium for your new address.

You could end up paying more for your new auto insurance, or you could find that your auto insurance premium has decreased in your new location! Your auto insurance rate depends on many factors, including insurance laws in your state and your area's loss history.

Don't wait to report

If you wait too long to update your contact information and you're involved in an accident, your auto insurance company could refuse to pay your claim. To help ensure your claims are paid, always pay your auto insurance premium on time and make sure your account is up-to-date.

It's easy to update your address and ZIP Code when you're an Esurance policyholder. You can make changes to your policy, print your insurance cards, and report claims any time day or night.

More assets can mean more auto insurance

Once you're settled into your new digs, check in with the Coverage Counselor® to see whether your recommended limits and levels have changed.
