How can you be completely confident that you have the Most Effective Bond Program available in the marketplace today?
Simply put...by choosing the most Reputable and Effective Bond Agency to represent your needs. How do you do this? By inquiring within the industry focusing in on:
Make certain the Owner of the firm is actively involved and is well respected in the industry. They have a vested interest because their name is on the door and their reputation is at stake.
Make certain they have an extensive background in the Surety Industry. Have they spent time on the Bond Company side in Local Office and HO leadership positions? This is uniquely invaluable and critical as they will have acquired the rare inside interworking knowledge of how to most effectively manage the process which will ultimately maximize all aspects of your Bond Program.
Make certain that they have a large base of Surety Company Appointments. This is important because if your operations experience change, positive or negative, they always have several options to keep you covered. Critical to this equation, going beyond just having appointments with Bond Companies, is that they must have long term, time tested, trusted relationships with each. Call each of their Bond Companies direct for a reference on them.These qualities of your Bond Agent will always get you the benefit of the doubt in any situation to meet your needs...the added earned advantage and trust in tough situations. A Bond Agent with losses, legal issues, Bond Company terminations, and who have a poor reputation, no matter the name on the door or their history, will inhibit your ability to get all of your needs met. These are all yellow flags to watch out for.
Relationships are everything in business. A unique characteristic of a solid Bond Agent is one who has also developed close personal relationships with the key people at each of the Bond Companies. This ocurrs by the Bond Agent having spent time on the Bond Company side in Local and HO positions and has known and worked alongside of many of the Bond Company Local and Home Office staffs in the business today for years.
In House Underwriting Authority provided by the Bond Companies to the Bond Agency. A testimony to the Bond Companies trust in them. This also provides quick turnaround time on bond issuance and approval.
Power of Attorney to execute all bonds in the Bond Agency's office. This is critical to maintain control over the delivey of all bonds in house.
