About East Coast Agency of Tabor City

There are many options available for insurance, but unless you have a background in the industry, it can be hard to know which policy is right for you. At East Coast Agency, we help clients throughout Tabor City and surrounding areas find the right insurance to meet their unique needs.

Founded in 1997 by Bruce McPherson, East Coast Agency of Tabor City sits on the border of North and South Carolina.  We are a short distance to the beaches of NC and SC and insure many properties along the coast. This allows us to serve areas well outside of Columbus County, NC.

Like all the East Coast Agency offices, Bruce believes in supporting the communities that we serve and has been an integral part of the Columbus County community most of his life. 

He has served as the MC for the annual Tabor City Yam Festival, Halloween Parade, Christmas Festivities, and Fourth of July events.  Bruce has even been named Tabor City Citizen of the Year. He is active in his community, serving on the North Carolina Manufactured Housing Board and the Columbus Regional Foundation Board.

As the agency has moved to its next chapter of joining the East Coast Agency family, we will not lose sight of Bruce’s vision and will continue to be a part of the community – proudly supporting all that we can.

Types of Insurance Offered


Personal insurance is a broad term used to cover several categories of insurance that apply to individuals and families. When you need vehicle insurance, home insurance, or life insurance, or a combination of policies, our agents will help you find exactly what will work best for you.

Umbrella Protection

Concerned about the future? With umbrella protection, you can set all your worries aside and rest assured that your future earnings and assets are covered.

Life & Health Insurance
