About Our NJ Insurance Agency

Central Jersey Insurance Associates has been in business with over 50 years of insurance experience. We are committed and passionate about providing excellent coverage at a competitive price. Our team of experienced professionals understand the importance of taking the time to discuss and explain important issues that are important to you or your business.

We believe insurance is not just a commodity, but an important tool to protect your business and family. Insurance should not be a cookie cutter policy like you get when you don’t use an independent agent. Your policy should be tailored to meet your specific needs.

At Central Jersey Insurance Associates our mission is to create lasting relationships with our clients so that we may continue providing excellent service for many years to come. Whether you are shopping for auto insurance, home, business or life insurance, our highly experienced staff of NJ insurance agency professionals can help you find the right coverage at the lowest price no matter what your needs are. We look forward to working with and helping you!
