We also underwrite the Financially Responsible Officer surety bond.

While many sureties no longer write the Florida Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond, we at Bonds Only, Inc. still have a large and competitive market for this license bond.  The Florida Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond is required by the State of Florida and is in place to protect the customer in a retail or wholesale transaction and protects the consumer in the event the principal breaches a written contract made in connection with the sale or exchange of a motor vehicle or violates the provisions of Chapter 319 (titles) or 320 (dealer licensing). Note, we also write Motor vehicle Dealer surety bonds in most states, including California, Louisiana, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, to name a few.

We are licensed in most states.  We also have aggressive markets for the Georgia Agricultural Products Dealer Surety License Bond.  This bond is required by the state and it guarantees the principal shall truly and faithfully make payments to all producers, agents or representatives for agricultural products bought from, handled or sold as required by Georgia Laws 1956, P617.  The bond penalty amount varies for this bond. Note, this particular bond is required by several States:  Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and Delaware, to name a few.

Bonds Only, Inc. also writes various Court bonds, such as personal representative bonds, guardianship bonding, probate bonds, and replevin obligations  This bond is typically required when a person has been appointed by the courts to handle the estate or property of an incapacitated person.  This surety bond generally protects the ward against fraud by the personal representative appointed by the Court.

The advantages of Bonding with our agency/our surety companies are as follows:

In order to expedite the bonding process, our agency is licensed with over twenty different surety companies. Once a bond has been approved, we can write the bond freely in our office, and send it to you immediately, upon receipt of any final items needed.

A surety company's credit is usually secured with simple signatures from the principals on an indemnity agreement, and does not usually encumber or lien specific assets.

We have the most aggressive surety companies in the market, typically with A.M Best Ratings of "A" or higher and U.S. Treasury listings.  We procure the most competitive rates in the business.

Our Agency is designed to best assist, develop, and pre-qualify the contracting company through our surety underwriting methods, before submitting to one of our many surety companies, maximizing bonding amounts or programs.

Bonds Only, Inc. also specializes in surety bonding with bad credit. We also lead the industry in SBA Surety Bonding (US Small Business Administration). We bond 8A contractors, disabled veterans, and WBE's (women and/or minority business enterprises). If your personal credit had slow pays, liens, or a bankruptcy, give us a call. We know how to mitigate risk for the sureties in order to get surety bond approval terms for most construction companies.
