I took an auto loan from a local credit union to buy a car. Imagine my surprise when the credit union asked me to fax the proof of auto insurance to their fax number. How do you fax in 2018?!
Sending a fax requires an actual phone number, so you will not get any free services to do this online. The most popular paid service I found to fax online was eFax.
Thankfully, I found that my auto insurance provider (Geico) had an option hidden away where they can fax the company financing the car.
Here is how to do that:
Add your finance company to your policy: You must have your finance company added on your auto insurance policy. If you have not done this, it is easy: from the top choose My Policy Details → Vehicle → View/Edit. Click the View/Edit button displayed below your car. In the dropdown box choose I want to edit finance company. You should be able to type the name of your finance company and find it listed with full address and add it in.
Fax your policy to finance company: From the top choose ID Cards and Documents → Documents → Other proof of coverage. In the Proof of Coverage wizard pick Binders. Later in the wizard you should be able to pick your car and enter the fax number of your finance company and Geico will fax them your insurance info in a few minutes. You can also choose email to get the same emailed to yourself.
