Choosing the perfect insurance company for yourself can be quite overwhelming, especially with thousands of insurance businesses out there vying for your attention. However, State Farm Mutual, an insurance provider supplying millions of customers in the U.S. and Canada with coverage since 1922 is a top favorite amongst consumers and currently ranked #34 on the Fortune 500 list. Founder George Jacob "G.J." Mecherle established his company based on one major principle; integrity, often saying, "Honesty isn't the best policy - it is the only policy." With a company mission to be the first and best choice in products and services, and Mercherle's vision to operate fairly and in the best interest of the customers, which is evident in their infamous slogan, "like a good neighbor, State Farm is there," it's a no brainer why State Farm insures more cars and homes than any other insurer in the United States.
Aside from being a top leader in the insurance sector, there are many other pros to becoming a State Farm customer. For instance, not only does this company provide top notch auto insurance, but State Farm customers are also offered a variety of products and services suitable for any need or want. With an estimated average of 35,000 claims processed a day, State Farm ensures all policy holders that this is a company that is without a doubt committed to making sure their customers are satisfied. The three different package options that you will receive can be compared against other insurance providers. In addition to the possible discounts you may be eligible for, another benefit to becoming a customer is that because of the large area coverage, you can find a State Farm office literally anywhere you go, an agent is always standing by, ready to take your call and answer any question you may have.
There really aren't too many cons to a company that has been around for so many years and has excelled nationally and internationally. However, the biggest concern among State Farm customers seems to be with the company's website. Many have complained that the online help isn't much help at all and that the website is hard to navigate for the less technologically inclined.
