    2 minute read

    If you’re moving to California, you have a lot to think about – from choosing where you’re going to live to figuring out how to get here. It’s important to include buying California insurance in your plans. That way, you can focus on your move knowing that your insurance needs are taken care of.

    First Thing’s First – California Car Insurance

    When you move to California, you only have 10 days to get a California license and re-register your vehicle(s). Because that’s not a lot of time, you should schedule an appointment with the California DMV before you move to make sure you can get your license in time.

    Once you have your driver’s license, you will need to buy California car insurance. AIS Insurance offers policies from top California insurance companies – helping to find you the best coverage and price for you. In fact, AIS customers save $600 on average on car insurance.

    If you’re on a budget, it’s also a good idea to get a car insurance quote before you move to California, so that you can better plan your expenses.

    California Home Owner’s Insurance

    If you’re buying a home, you will need home owner’s insurance. The type of policy you need will depends on whether you buy or rent and if you buy is it a house or a condo. If you’re planning to buy a house, it’s a good idea to research California homeowner’s insurance prices before you buy. Only then will you know the true cost of owning your home.

    California Condo Insurance

    If you’re buying a condo in California, you may also need condo insurance. The coverage you need to buy is partially dictated by the condo owner’s association policy. It’s a good idea to get this information before you buy. Then, call AIS for a condo insurance quote.

    California Renter’s Insurance

    If you’re planning to rent, it’s a good idea to buy renter’s insurance. Renter’s insurance is basically an insurance policy for all of the things you keep in your apartment. Without renter’s insurance, you will not have protection against theft or damage. Plus, renter’s insurance helps protect you from being sued should anyone suffer an injury in your apartment.

    As soon as you know where you’re going to live, you can get a quote for renter’s insurance.
