USA Insurance

Hi, Starting to plan a trip with our UK registered Toyota Hilux, being shipped over to Canada/USA & finally shipped out from the west coast to Australia to finish our trip.

Can anyone offer us any advice on vehicle insurance required for America, any links to providers would be appreciated.

Thanks Dave.

Hi Dave,

I found Stephen Stewart's post pretty usefull:

Canada & Alaska 2012

I am will be booking my truck onto a boat to Brunswick later in the year and will be going with Seabridge. They offer pretty reaonable insurance in America but I am not sure if they are able to provide it if you are not shipping with them. For example, a vehicle worth under $10,000 will cost $1,114 per 6months if you are under 31. It's expensive by UK standards but insurance for foreigners with foreign registered vehicles will always be expensive.

We're aiming to ship in October and will be spending about 12months out there if budget allows. Maybe see you on the road?

Nick

Use progressive.com. All done online but you do need a US address so you may need to find someone on the forum who can help.

Note the cost of insurance varies by US state so,if you get several offers check out each one before rejecting them.
