When I bought my car, I financed it through my bank. (Service Credit Union) before I could leave they made sure I had insurance on it so I had to call my insurance and have them send over an "insurance binder." When I bought my first Harley last weekend, I financed it through my bank and there was no mention of getting insurance. I plan to anyway, but I was just wondering why they never said anything about it.
Very simply, it's not the dealerships problem.
A dealership that is set up to sell you the vehicle insurance, will insist on a physical damage binder. On the oft chance they can get you to buy from them.
I live in Mass., bought my RG S from Manchester Harley. Traded in an 06 Kawi, and drove away within 2 hours of arriving, on a Saturday. Financed by HD. Dealer knew, Massachusetts used to new trade in was covered automatically, by state law. I couldn't have gotten a binder on Saturday. I did have the sense to bring my policy with me. But, was never asked for it.
