Frequent Questions

Where can I get a supply bond form?

We have the standard AIA supply bond forms on file which most obligees use. The obligee may have their own special bond form with their own bond language; in which case you need to obtain it from them.

Can I get a bond for a new business?

Yes. We have credit based programs available for smaller contracts which allow new businesses to obtain contract bonding. However, this is not possible for larger contracts unless the owner(s) have substantial equity within the company and an impressive resume of past experience.

Will the supply bond guarantee installation?

No. They specifically exclude the guarantee of any installation. They only guarantee the supply of materials and goods.

I also need a performance bond. Do I need a separate application?

Only if you need a standalone supply bond. You do not need a separate application if it is required alongside a performance and payment bond.

Why do you look at my personal credit?

To determine your likelihood of triggering claims and your ability to pay them. This is important, as surety bonds are a form of credit to you, not insurance. Sureties will look to you for reimbursement on any legitimate claims.

What if I have a false claim filed against me?

It is your obligation to provide proof to the surety that the claim is false. It is always a good idea to document any disputes to ensure a proper paper trail to defend your actions.
