Given Seal of Merit As "Nation's Best Buy In Auto Insurance" The mystery of the "best buy" in auto insurance, the tangled web that most motorists know little or nothing about, has been solved by the , editorial research board of Car Life Magazine, in an exclusive article appearing in the November issue. After two months of study and evaluation of 39 auto insurance companies by the national magazine's research team, the Stale Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company of Bloomington, Illinois, was awarded the Car Life Magazine Seal of Merit Award for the "nation's best buy in aulo insurer""." "When you are ready to buy your policy." Car Life found, "you need not shop for one that offers everything and a little extra. Today, all policies have standard provisions and most companies use the standard policy. But what you do need to consider is this: The kind and amount of protection your particular needs require. The cost of the policy and the reputation and stability of the company insuring you." "However, these are by no means the only or most important factors to be taken into account in buying auto insurance," the magazine article continues. "What is important is what happens when you present your insurance company with a claim." "Is the agent or representative easily reached? Is he cooperative? Does he represent you as well as the company? Will the company try to talk you out of your claim, or reduce it? Will you have to wait a long period for settlement? Will the company force you to go to court? In short, will your insurance policy do what it claims to do?" Taking all these factors into consideration, the magazine editors found that State Farm Mutual Insurance Company compared better with the rigid code of specifications than any of the 39 auto insurance companies studied. The company is represented in Algona by Harold C. Sundet. GREAT AMERICAN PUBLICATIONS, Inc. Seal Award Certificate awarded to STATE FARM MUTUAL AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE CO.
