What Documents Do You Need to Get an Auto Insurance Quote?

To get your auto insurance quote rolling and to help us get you the most accurate quote possible, there are a few documents that’ll be helpful to have on hand:

State IDs for all insured. The full name, date of birth and driver’s license numbers for all members of your household.

Contact information. Your full name, address and phone number.

Vehicle ID. You’ll need the vehicle identification number (VIN) and also the year, make and model of the car you want to insure.

Usage details. Info on how often you use the car, and what you’re using it for.

Policy coverage basics. An idea of what coverages you’d like — your agent can walk you through all the options. If you have a “declarations page” that lists your coverages, your agent can use this to help focus on getting you the specific coverage you’re looking for.

A voided check. This one’s optional, but if you bring along a check from the account that you would like Automated Funds Transfers to pull from, you’ll be doing yourself a big favor. Your agent can help you set this up and also enroll you into paperless billing and policy access through My Account (Opens in a new tab) where you can pay with credit cards as well. It’s a convenient online service that can help to qualify you for even more savings and discounts!

Take Advantage of Our Safe Driver Programs

Once you’re a proud, card-carrying member of American Family Insurance, you’ve got a lot of resources at your disposal. Here are a few highlights of how we’re helping our members turn into safer drivers:

Enroll in KnowYourDrive. A usage-based program that helps you to take control of what you pay for insurance, KnowYourDrive tracks how you drive and sends the info back to us. The safer you drive, the more you can save money on your car insurance premium.

Help make young drivers better drivers. Our Teen Safe Drive Program is a smartphone app that helps new drivers to understand what areas of their driving habits need improvement.
