Repair menAs a business owner, you may recognize the value of offering your would-be customers and clients with as much confidence and assurance as possible that working with your business can be a truly successful venture for them. That is not always easy to do. Many of today’s businesses need to know that your company should provide the highest level of financial protection to meet their needs and that you’ll have no trouble meeting their goals. However, surety bonds can provide you and your would-be customer with an additional layer of support in these situations.

A surety bond is a type of contract that is signed by three parties. It is a type of agreement – not a type of insurance product. It includes the principal, or the person or company that is obtaining the protection, the surety, the company that may provide the bond, and the obligee, the entity that is requiring the bond, such as the customer. The goal of this agreement is to provide confidence to the buyer. The surety can financially guarantee that the principal should perform and act in accordance with the terms of the contract the guarantee is written to the obligee.

More clearly, a surety bond works to provide a level of financial protection to your customer or client when working with you. The simplest explanation is that surety bonds work to guarantee that some tasks can be fulfilled according to the details of the agreement. For example, if the obligee does not feel that you performed the task required to the highest level promised within the contract, he or she may file a claim against the surety bond. If the claim is deemed to be valid, the surety should then pay the reparations. The amount paid cannot be higher than the bond amount. However, this is not the end of the bond. The underwriters for the surety bond expect that you, the principal, can pay for any claims that had to be paid out on your behalf.

Understanding how surety bonds work is important. If you operate a construction, contractors, or other professional level service in which the quality of your workmanship is vitally important, obtaining these bonds can provide security to the client.
