    Plates for Vehicles Bought Out of State

    describe the imageWe occasionally have clients that purchase vehicles from out of state dealers.   Sometimes the dealers will suggest that the client drive their new car home with temporary plates obtained in their state.  The problem with this is that Massachusetts does not issue Temporary Plates to its residents per MGL Chapter 90, Section 9.   So, if a Mass. resident were to purchase a car in NY and obtain temporary plates there and drive it into Massachusetts, they could be pulled over for operating an unregistered vehicle which would involve a fine and also a surcharge on your insurance.   

    The best thing is to register the car in Massachusetts, put the new Mass. plates on it and drive it home or have the vehicle delivered to you by the dealership and register it as soon as possible so that you can then drive it.  In any case, always give your agent a call when you are buying a new car to discuss the registration options and insurance coverages.

    Renewal Reminders

    Dont forget to renew your automobile insurance policy with auto from Andrew Gordon Inc Norwell MAWho has forgotten to renew a license??  Get the inspection on the car done on time?  Not been aware that a registration was not renewed because of a forgotten parking ticket?

    In these days, with everybody so busy, it is easy to forget something that happens once a year (inspection sticker) or once every five years (license renewal).  The registration plate renewal comes in the form of a bill that needs to be paid, so that is harder to miss.  However, if you have an outstanding parking ticket your registration could be non-renewed and you would not even realize that.

    Well, there is an easy solution to this so that you do not get stuck and possibly surcharged or have your vehicle towed.  One of our insurance carriers (Plymouth Rock Assurance Corp) offers a service to all of our customers, whether you have your insurance with them or not.  They will email you reminders for your license, inspection, and registration renewals.

    All you have to do is go to to sign in.  You will get an email reminder telling you what needs to be done – simple!

    If you have any questions at all, of course feel free to give us a call and we can check on the status of any of these items. Learn more about auto insurance here
