For those picking up from out of state, how are you going to insure the vehicle for the road trip?

I am from Michigan with crazy auto insurance. I wouldnt mind securing an address in Texas for a couple of months to qualify for getting auto insurance there for the CT and using that long term in Michigan after the trip back.

Is this sensible? Or can the CT be insured at the giga factory with your original (out of)state auto-ins. over the phone and internet? Very curious. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

MI insurance may be crazy, I cannot address that. But my insurance automatically insures any new car I buy for 30 days. And once I have title, a phone call adds it to my insurance.

I doubt if you really face a problem.

That's good to know. Automatically insuring new vehicles is news to me. Highly convenient.

Can I ask what insurance you use and from what state?

Picking it up would be fun, especially since I have family to visit near there.

For those worried about insurance, etc. I bought a new car in CA and drove it back to WA. The dealer had no problem getting the taxes straight and working with my lender in WA. My insurance co was also very helpful, just called and gave them the VIN and done although I believe you have a short time to do that (like NBD).

Me and my wifey are planning to fly there and hopefully take a tour of the factory and then drive the CT back home. It’s been a while since we had a long drive so it should be fun.

Will most likely fly down with the wife, spend some time in Austin, pick up the CT, drive it back up along the coastline, stopping for some time in New Orleans, Savannah, and Raleigh on the way back up to Connecticut.

I would love to depending on what the weather looks like. Would be a great road trip back to the PNW
Where are you? I’m in Coeur D Alene and really looking forward to getting this truck. There’s a good chance I’ll fly down and do a factory pickup and drive back to Idaho

If given the option, I would like to fly down to TX and pickup the truck and then head to CA to pickup the Polydrops trailer to do a road trip across this great country of ours!
