Morris Insurance Agency has been providing the people and businesses of Eastern North Carolina with insurance services since 1933 when the Morris family founded the agency.
Our goal is to know our clients and their unique needs and design an insurance program around those needs. Whether personal, business, or life and health insurance, we don’t just copy existing policies and try to beat the rate, we study our clients true needs and design a program that fits the business or individual. We strive to live by our motto “Exceeding our client’s expectations”.
We offer a wide array of coverage options for home, auto, life, commercial property, worker’s compensation, and personal liability. We look forward to hearing from you and providing a tailored quote to fit your needs.
