Bid Bond Season
Non-standard Bid Bonds
Spring is the season of Bid Bonds in many parts of the country. Contractors often wait until the last second to acquire Bid Bonds which can leave insurance agents scrambling to place them. If you start working with a new client that needs bid bonds, remember that the surety typically requires the same level up underwriting for Bid Bonds as they do for Payment & Performance Bonds. Making sure you have all pertinent information during the Bid Bond process helps ensure that there will not be issues with the Payment & Performance Bonds. Credit score problems or other issues may pop up at any point in the bonding process. Reach out to CCI Surety for Bid Bonds, Payment & Performance Bonds, and other bond needs early.
