It’s a fact. You cannot live in MA and legally drive your car without insurance. The question is not whether you should get auto insurance. It is where to get it. Some companies have been quite successful selling one-size fits all insurance plans. In fifteen minutes they can get you “legally insured”. For those people who buy auto insurance solely because the state makes them fifteen minutes is probably all it takes.
At Columbia we know that there are a lot more people who view auto insurance as an important part of their financial plan. Those people may want to spend more than fifteen minutes discussing how their auto policy can be tailored to fit their plan. When you hire Columbia Insurance our time is your time. Whether you need fifteen minutes or fifty we will work with you to design your policy to meet your needs. And, we will come to your office so you don’t have to come to ours.
Our Workplace Programs cost the employer nothing but give their employees the opportunity to receive additional discounts on their personal automobile insurance. Their employees may pay less for their car insurance but the service they receive is not less. In fact, we believe they receive far better service through our programs.
As you may have heard the RMV began issuing the Real ID at the end of March. Beginning in 2020 your current MA driver’s license will not serve as a valid ID to allow you fly, enter a federal building or serve jury duty among other things. The advice from the people on the Registry floor is that if your license is coming up for renewal you might as well just get the Real ID instead. You can only get the Real ID at a RMV branch. Renewing on-line or at an AAA office will only renew your current license. That means you will most likely end up visiting the RMV sometime in the next two years to get your Real ID anyway.
Note the Real ID requires you to produce more documents to prove who you are and where you live. You will need to provide these documents even if you have a valid MA driver’s in order to get the Real ID. The list of required and acceptable documents is pictured to the right.

“I needed to renew my Insurance through my prior company, and unfortunately my insurance went extremely up with them. I spoke to Klynn Bagaco at Columbia and he worked very very hard and saved me a ton. He got my monthly payment lower than what I was paying the previous year, and everything was done online and was fast & simple. Highly recommend!”
