HI
I just shipped my car to MA. Can anyone tell me if there is any formality that I need to take care for driving the car legally here.
The title and registration and state inspection are all Texas based.

Need help urgent.

Thanks in advance,
amber

Hi Amber,

I believe that you technically have three weeks to register your car in Massachusetts & you'll also need to get an inspection sticker (I think they run about $40 now). But you should be fine to drive it I would think with your Texas plates on it. When we moved to California I don't think I ever switched my plates. I kept MA plates and I never even had a CA license but I know you're not supposed to do that!

Thanks for the reply.
Geico doesnt provide auto insurance in MA. Which are the other good companies that I should consider for my auto insurance?
Is auto insurance in New Hampshire cheaper?

Inspections are $29. Commerce insurance is a pretty large insurance company here. If you have AAA membership, you can get a discount.

Check out the RMV website for your registration questions.

Most of the major insurers youdknow from Texas don't offer coverage here. I was baffled when I first moved here, did a lot of research, and got the best rates from Amica.

Will you be living in NH or Mass? You have to register and insure in the state you're actually living in, or you're not driving your car legally.

I've had good rates from Met Life. Depending on your employer, they might offer discounts (Met Life and some other companies offer job-based rate discounts).

Auto insurance almost anywhere is cheaper!! And what's not highly publicized is that 1. if you have Triple A (American auto services), you get a discount; also, if you end up buying public transporatation passes, if you save them you can turn them in for additional discount.

Commerce Insurance Co and Met Life are two biggies.

Good luck.
