How to get a Surety Bond in Washington?

Do you need a Surety Bond to fulfill a client request, court demand, license requirement or other responsibility? If so, we’re happy to assist you with getting the best deal for your Washington state Surety Bond. View instant Washington Bond quotes from leading Surety Bond companies using our dropdown menu below. We just need to know the bond type and bond amount you require to start.

What Surety Bond amount and type do you need?

When shopping for a Surety Bond, know the type of bond and bond amount is important. There exists a large variety of bond types. If you purchase and submit the wrong type of Surety Bond, chances are the Obligee (entity requesting the bond) will deny your submission. We recommend verifying the bond type and bond amount you need with the Obligee to ensure they will accept your Surety Bond.

Here is a list of popular bond types for the state of Washington.

Washington Suety Bond requirements:

If you lost your title before registering your car or bought a vehicle with a missing title, a Bonded Title might be your best solution.

Your first step is to contact your local Washington DMV to ensure your vehicle is eligible for a Bonded Title. The state requires the amount of your bond to be 1.5 times the value of your vehicle. However, this isn’t what your bond costs. Most of our clients pay $100 for their Certificate of Lost Title Bond.

Licensed contractors are required by the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries to have a Surety Bond. Unlike a traditional insurance policy, the Surety Bond is in place to provide security to your clients, not you as the contractor. If you give unethical service or perform shoddy work, your client can make a claim against your bond to recover the financial loss. This leaves you with the responsibility of paying the surety company back in full.

Before you start a new project, you may receive a request to secure a Contract Bond. The most common types of Contract Bonds include Bid Bonds, Maintenance Bonds, Payment Bonds, Performance Bonds and Warranty Bonds.

What kind of Fidelity Bond are you needing?

  • Business Service / Janitorial Bond: This policy covers your client if an employee steals from them.

  • Employee Dishonesty Bond: This type of policy is also known as a “Commercial Crime Fidelity Bond”. You and your business are protected if your employee steals from the business.

  • ERISA Bond: The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) requires administrators of employee benefit and pension plans to have an ERISA Bond. The beneficiaries of the plan are safe from financial loss if the plan funds are mishandled by the administrator.

Washington Mortgage Brokers must meet the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions’ Surety Bond requirement to receive their license. The bond is a financial safeguard for your clients if you perform fraudulently or unethically.

Vehicle dealers selling new and used cars must meet the Washington Department of Revenue’s motor vehicle dealer license requirement of having a $30,000 Surety Bond. This requirement ensures dealers don’t perform unethical business practices. Motorcycle dealers in Washington only need a $5,000 Surety Bond.

How much does a Washington Surety Bond cost?

Most of our Washington State Surety Bonds start at $100 for a 1-year term. The cost of the bond is determined by the bond amount and type of bond you are needing. Larger bonds mean a bigger risk. So, a higher premium cost is expected for the amount of coverage.

We also take into account credit score to calculate the cost of some bonds. However, we only perform a soft-pull on credit. Your credit score is not adversely affected when a run a credit check. With good credit and approval, you can expect to pay around 1%-5% of the amount of the bond.

Getting a Surety Bond with bad credit

Getting a Surety Bond in Washington State with bad credit is possible. However, if you receive approval for your bond with non-standard credit, the cost of the bond could be as high as 5%-15% of the bond amount you require.

Fortunately, many of our bonds don’t require a pull on your credit. In this scenario, your credit doesn’t affect the cost of your bond.

Just because your credit isn’t good, doesn’t mean you can’t get your Surety Bond. Apply today to get free, no-obligation quotes.

I bought a surety bond for my business. The name on the application has my middle name on it and the policy didn't. That would or could have created a problem. I wrote to customer service to complain. Well not complain but ask for it to be changed. Since it was Thanksgiving weekend I wasn't expecting to hear back till this week sometime. Well to my surprise it was "Very" Quickly. JD was very helpful and professional. Fixed it then contacted me with the corrected version. Couldn't be happier. " Good Business is Good Business"

Surety Solutions is a fantastic company to work with. I was in a unique situation and was having trouble finding a company willing to underwrite an estate conservatorship bond for me. Surety Solutions took the time to listen to me and shopped around with their underwriters and found someone willing to underwrite the bond. Having to experience the probate system is a major headache; however, Surety Solutions makes sure the bonding portion of it does not have to be 🙂

From applying for a bond quote to purchasing and receiving the bond was simple and efficient. My questions were answered promptly with upbeat attitude and patience. Customer service definitely exceeded beyond my expectations. I would certainly use their service again in the future.

I worked with Cryssi at Surety Solutions in order to secure a $900,000 conservator bond. Their quote was by far the best out of several companies I requested quotes through ($2,110 vs. $3,500). Cryssi was always very helpful and responded very quickly during business hours and often during after hours via email. I will continue to work with and renew with their company especially if their quotes and customer service remain this excellent. Thank you again! MikeSo just an update to my original post. It was time to renew the conservator bond this year and Cryssi at Surety Solutions made the process extremely streamlined and convenient. I received an email stating it was time to renew the bond with a link to pay online. My rate didn't change at all and it took about 30 seconds to renew my bond. This has been an easy, convenient, and one of the most affordable companies to work with. Some of the best customer service in the market which is sometimes hard to find these days! Thank you again for an affordable quote which was seamless to renew. Thank you Cryssi!

Beau was super helpful when I had questions about buying a used car from a seller with an unusual title situation. I have not bought a used car before, so it was very reassuring to talk through my concerns about the situations and the safest ways to move forward. He thoughtfully responded to my inquiries without pestering for my contact info or trying to sell me products - such customer service is hard to find these days! Thank you!

I had been dreading the red-tape of obtaining a surety bond for a lost vehicle title. I had just obtained a quote from another company online and was not pleased with the price. Surety Solutions was less expensive---by far---and their service was outstanding: efficient and polite. The quote was obtained, approval given, and the transaction was complete in a just a couple of hours. I could not be more pleased!
