What type of Surety Bond do I choose?
A common question we receive from clients requesting a quote is “which bond type do I select?” We’ve found the best way to determine the bond type you need is to verify with the obligee (the entity requiring you to get a Surety Bond). The obligee should be able to provide you with a copy of the bond form, which ensures we quote you accurately. There are thousands of different types of Surety Bonds. If you submit the incorrect type of bond to the obligee, they will not accept your bond. The bond form should also specify the amount (or how to calculate the amount) you require.
Below you’ll find the most common types of bonds we issue in Georgia.

Certificate of Lost Title Bond
If you purchased a vehicle with a missing title or lost the title before registering the vehicle into your name, a bonded title might be your best solution to register your vehicle.
The first step is to contact the Georgia Department of Revenue to determine whether or not your vehicle is eligible for a bonded title. If eligible, you’ll need to get a bond with an amount equaling twice the value of your vehicle. However, please note the state will not accept a bond with an amount of less than $5,000. You are not responsible for paying the full amount of the bond. In fact, most of our clients only pay $100 for their lost title bonds.

What does a Georgia Surety Bond cost?
When calculating the cost of your bond, there are a few factors to consider. Such as the bond type, bond amount and maybe your credit. Bonds with a larger amount usually require more premium due to the additional risk involved. However, a great deal of our Georgia Surety Bonds start at only $100.
If the bond you need requires a credit check, which many don’t, we’ll perform a soft-pull on your credit to calculate your quote. Don’t let a credit check deter you from requesting a quote. A soft-pull will not adversely affect your credit score. If approved for the bond, individuals with good credit can expect to pay 1%-5% of the bond amount.
Will I get approved for a bond with bad credit?
It is possible to get approved for a bond while having bad credit. The cost of the bond could be between 5%-15% of the bond amount for individuals with non-standard credit. If the bond you need a quote for doesn’t require a credit check, then your credit doesn’t affect your approval or bond cost.
Don’t let bad credit prevent you from requesting a Surety Bond quote. Our team is happy to work with you to discover an affordable solution.
