Moved to Charlotte in August and I havent changed my address yet. But I might only be here until next year. My car insurance is about to expire and I don't know if I can get nj insurance while living in NC. Is it worth it to change my address when I cold be moving fairly soon? And can you get out of state insurance while living in nc?

You're legally supposed to change everything over after living in a new place for a number of weeks, I think it is four weeks.

But aside from that, New Jersey has the most expensive insurance rates in the country, and North Carolina is one of the cheapest car insurance states. I know I'd move all my stuff to NC as soon as possible.

North Carolina is NOT one of the cheapest car insurance states. I came from NY and my rates were slightly higher here. Not by much,but they were higher

According to this CBS news article, NC is the 7th cheapest, and NJ is the 18th most expensive.

I'd say 7th gets cred for "one of the cheapest".

Say what? Where in NY? My insurance here is about 40% of what I was paying on LI. Huge difference. I'd shop companies if I were you...

Hmm. Apparently New Jersey insurance has gotten a lot cheaper, or the other states have gotten more expensive, since I lived there. I remember it being the top of the list a few years ago.
