Frequently Asked Questions

What is the bond process?

Apply, receive a quote online, sign the surety agreements, pay online and then we will ship the bond out.

Where can I get a utility bond form?

The utility company will provide their own form. If not, we have generic utility bond forms on file. If you would like to use one of our template forms, it is a good idea to ensure it is acceptable to the utility company prior to purchasing, as bond premiums are "fully earned" for the first year.

Will the utility company turn on utilities before I get a bond?

Usually, no. The utility company generally wants a bond in place before turning on the utilities.

Are utility deposit bonds required by both private and public utility companies?

Yes. Both may require bonds as they protect the utility company from individuals who historically miss payments.

Can I obtain a utility revenue bond without collateral?

Yes. However, you will need strong personal credit. Apply online and get a bond collateral free.

What if a false claim is filed?

You must contact us immediately, as we have a team of claim specialists here to find a resolution for you. Keep in mind, it is crucial that you work with an expert in the surety industry. Learn more about how to ensure you choose the proper bond company.
