Insurance Question from Beechhurst, NY

Asked on 06/09/2012

What insurance company allows me to purchase a policy and pay online. My car was recently towed by the Marshall for unpaid parking tickets. I paid the fine but was unable to retrieve my car from the impound lot due to lack of insurance, which had just lapsed for 3 days. I have had no luck in trying to aquire insurance so that I can get my car out of the impound lot. Any suggestions?

There are many online insurance companies that will allow you to pay online for the premium to get insurance started. However, some states require an inspection of the car before it can be insured, and if your car is in an impound yard, it will be impossible to get the inspection done. It is possible you could get liability insurance on the car and once you get it out of the storage you could then get the car inspected and add physical damage insurance on it.There should also be insurance companies that you could contact through an insurance agent that could insure the car, again for liability coverage only to start. If you are hoping to get the insurance and then pay for the insurance at a later date, that will be more difficult to arrange, especially if the car is not insured currently and that you don’t have possesion of the car.
