What he didn’t factor in was that he was out of state at the time. When he came home and registered the vehicle, boy did he ever have a shock! Premiums were triple the original price. That’s when I gently reminded him state residency plays a big part in rates as does age, sex, and marital status. Chalk the whole thing up to experience. Next time around though, he was sure to ask for all the facts.
