How about this? It was the responsibility of the Insurance Agent for State Farm who sold me the policy to inform me this policy was an auto-renew policy, in contrast to the auto-insurance I had with State Farm.
There is a happy ending though. For my auto coverage, I have since switched to Liberty Mutual, which insures me for auto coverage for over 25% less per year (my auto insurance policy with Liberty Mutual, for the same amount of coverage, is over $250 per year less expensive than my auto insurance policy was with State Farm). Also, I can save time and pay my entire year of auto insurance at one time, in contrast to State Farm, which required me to make two half-payments per year.
I will recommend that everyone in my family drop their coverage with State Farm. After all, who would not want to save hundreds of dollars per policy?
