#6: They work in your location (or many locations!)

If you’re looking for the best surety bond companies, and you work in more than one state, you’ll want to look for a provider who can provide bond services in the many locations where you work. Some bond companies/brokers are regionally based, others are nationally licensed.

You will want to make sure that the broker you go with has a license to sell surety bonds in the state where you need a bond. This is also an important factor for businesses that may be small now but want to expand in the future.

#7: They work with small or large business

Before you decide to work with a surety bond company, make sure that the company has experience working with your type and size of business.

If you’re a small businessperson, choose a company with a track record of providing bonds to small businesses, rather than one that works primarily with larger companies.
The best surety bond company will work with businesses of all sizes, so they can service you at startup and throughout your growth.

#8: They provide your bond quickly

Business owners don’t make money by working on compliance issues that do nothing to build profitability. So at the end of the day, speed is very much a consideration.
The more time you spend executing a surety bond, the less time you have to do what you love. Choose a surety bond broker who is built for speed. Who can get you the right bond, at the best rate in the quickest time frame possible?
