About NJM car insurance

has been a major player in the insurance industry for 108 years. Unlike its competitors, NJM focused its efforts on cutting deals with industrial plants, corporations, and trade groups instead of selling to the public. This made it possible for NJM to offer its employees automobile, boat, homeowners and worker’s compensation insurance.
NJM’s reputation as an insurance company that offered low prices and snappy customer service was quickly spread by its employees. Through word of mouth, NJM was able to grow its company to be incredibly popular without the use of extensive advertising and branding.
