About Us

We Take Care of the Things You Worry About

Whether you’re a new homeowner, renewing an auto policy, or have a growing business or family, there is a 100% chance that the team at Gilbert J. Costa knows exactly what you are going through and has the experience to help you through it.

Gilbert J. Costa Insurance Agency BuildingFounded in 1964 by Gilbert J. Costa and his wife Patricia, our agency has been a local, independent, and family-owned and operated business for over five decades. Our company was built on providing the highest level of personalized service and developing long-term relationships. To that end, our team treats every client like the real person, family, or business owner they are, rather than just a number.

As our client, you are assigned to one account executive who will get to know your unique set of needs and will have the knowledge to handle all your insurance requirements, including home, auto, personal umbrella, or small business. However, that doesn’t mean they are the only one who can assist you. On the contrary, every staff member at Gilbert J. Costa is instilled with a sense of responsibility to you, our client. We are all here to actively listen to you and act as your trusted advisors, not just your insurance agents.

The Gilbert J. Costa Agency is comprised of your neighbors; born and raised in New Bedford MA and the surrounding Southeastern Massachusetts communities. As such, we are fully dedicated to your safety and security. We promise to be with you every step of the way, through the good and not-so-good times, just as we have been there for generations of families and business owners over the past fifty years.
