Bond Requirement Waived
Many contractors limit their growth by trying to get contract bond requirements waived or by avoiding bonded projects all together. As agents, you can help your contractor, especially smaller contractors looking to grow, by getting them in consistent and stable bond relationships. A contractor with clear and consistent bonding relationships is less likely to make other compromises to get a bond requirement waived.
Calling in a favors, or getting an exception from a standard market can be only a one-time solution for contractors and may not help them on the next project. Credit based quick programs may also provide temporary avenues for bonding, however, those programs have size restrictions. If they do not access to larger bond programs the contractor will once again have to try to get a bond requirement waived. CCI Surety is always handling non-standard accounts and can set up a program to consistently meet your contractor’s bond needs as well as help them grow into larger projects.
