Bond Services

Surety Bonds

Surety bonds are our specialty.  We represent all the major bonding companies and provide all types of bonds (except no bail bonds).
 
Surety bonds are very different from insurance policies.  Insurance protects you from events you don’t expect.  Bonds protect someone else from your failure or inability to do what you are expected to do. 
 
There are many types of surety bonds, but all are similar in that a surety, or bonding company, guarantees you will do what you say you will.  If you don’t the surety will step in and complete your obligations.
 
Unlike an insurance policy, if a surety pays a bond claim you are obligated to reimburse them.

Permit or License Bonds

Guarantees a permitee or licensee will comply with laws and ordinances regarding operations they are permitted or licensed to perform.

Notary Public Bonds
