Rooted in Tradition but Beyond the Traditional
We've been in the insurance business for a long time. Long enough to know that true business success requires going beyond the traditional brokerage model.

Our mission is to help you navigate the complex insurance world and prioritize what’s best for your business, while avoiding the risk monsters lurking around every corner. Through our expansive resources, we can help you take a holistic approach to coverage, while bringing to light the coverage gaps you didn’t even know you had.
Solutions Tailored to Your Business' Needs
No matter who you are or how complex your business is, we can offer customized solutions that evolve with your business. Our results-driven process quantifies the value of our collaborative efforts, so we can plan to stay ahead of risk.
I have been using SCS Agency for my commercial insurance needs for a few years now. Anthony has always been honest and extremely timely in helping me with all my needs. From last minute insurance certificates to replacement car insurance ID cards on the weekend, they’re great! Each year they prepare a report with the best renewal options and recommendations for me to review. The process is so easy. I cannot recommend a more professional and competent insurance agency.
What an awesome agency to work with! Earlier this year, our college was in need of a comprehensive insurance package for commencement at Madison Square Garden. The insurance company we were working with previously did not provide the coverage required by the venue. Cheryl Charles, from SCS, was able to expeditiously, diligently and professionally ensure all of our insurance needs were met. I highly recommend SCS Agency for your insurance needs.

R. Baker has been in business for over 75 years and has preformed work throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. When we met over 35 years ago, we only had 5 employees and performed around $150,000 in sales per year. We were referred to SCS by a long term customer when we lost our insurance and could not find anyone with the ability and knowledge to place our business. Within one week you provided us with a solution and afforded us coverage which helped pull us from the brink of disaster. Over the years we have worked together through many good times and unfortunately through many hard times. It's in those hard times when you see the true colors and worth of a person. I am confident to say that in those hard times you never wavered, and always held true to your word and commitment in assuring a successful outcome for R. Baker, my family and I.
