About Cingo

We've been protecting families in the southeast since 1974. What began as a one-man operation in Dublin, Georgia has grown to a team of 100 and is still owned by the Allgood family. The name Cingo literally means to secure and surround, conveying our commitment to protect you and your family. And we have a lot of respect for those who take it upon themselves to make protection a part of what they do, too. That's why we've launched Circle & Shield, our award to those who help make the world a better place, a safer place.

Cingo operates in markets throughout Georgia and South Carolina. You will find us in Atlanta, Augusta, Charleston, Douglas, Dublin, Milledgeville, Savannah, Vidalia, Waycross and all points in between.

We attribute our success to a simple business plan built on core values that shape our culture and guide our actions and customer commitments to ensure a flawless customer experience.
