What to Do When You Purchase a Vehicle

If you just bought a new car for the first time or the first time in a while, you’ve probably spent the last few days thinking about paperwork and car sales. Before you move on from your car purchase, take these steps to make sure your car is safe and make it your own. 

Get Insurance

There are many kinds of auto insurance, from liability coverage to medical payments coverage to comprehensive coverage. Unless you’re in New Hampshire, you’re legally required to purchase some kind of coverage. For example, if you live in New York, you’re required to have a liability insurance policy. Failing to have a policy can lead to fines, vehicle impoundment, license suspension, and even jail time. Purchase your required policy as soon as possible to avoid these consequences.

Customize It

Have you been eyeing some bumper stickers or paint job ideas for a while?

Take a Road Trip

Once you’re used to your car and have worked out any unusual controls, taking a road trip is a fun way to enjoy your new wheels. Ask a friend or family member to come with you, and plan a route to scenic overlooks or your favorite stores. Road trips can be just a few hours or several weeks, so work with your schedules to plan the perfect trip for you.

Purchasing a car gives you the freedom to drive wherever you want without waiting on someone else. Protect and celebrate this freedom by taking these steps.
