If you’re planning on importing a car into the United States there are a few things you need to do in order to make sure that your car is properly insured. Here’s a brief overview of the process:
1. Check with your insurance company to see if they offer coverage for imported cars. If they don’t you’ll need to find a company that specializes in insuring imported vehicles.
2. Make sure you have all the necessary documentation for your car including any registration and/or insurance documents from your home country.
3. Contact the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to find out what paperwork you need to fill out in order to import your car.
