FAQs About Instant Issue Bonds
We want you to feel comfortable working with our surety bond company and realize you may still have questions. Our FAQ section below will help you understand more about our business and what we do. Let’s learn more!
What's An Instant Issue Bond?
Can I Get Surety Bonds with Bad Credit?
Surety bonds requiring underwriting consideration have to go through a longer process than our instant-issue bonds. Our team performs a soft credit check to see where you stand credit-wise. However, don’t worry if your credit is bad.
Your credit check tells us what market you’ll fall into and whether you require more documentation. If you can get an instant-issue bond, you won’t need to send business/personal financial statements. However, bad credit applicants may require them to supplement the credit report and help us get a clear picture of their needs.
Overall, bad credit surety bonds vary significantly by bond type and your state. We offer the lowest rates to our customers, but it might not be instantaneous. Likewise, the price you pay might be higher than most bonds.
