Obtaining License or Permit Bonds

License or Permit Bonds:  In most instances, it only takes a few hours to get license or permit bonds.

How will I get my license or permit bonds?

Most License and permit bonds are electronically sealed and can be emailed directly to you for your signature. If the entity requires a raised seal on the bond it can be sent overnight for an additional $20.00, otherwise regular mail for free.

How much will the bond cost?

The price depends on the amount of the bond and the entity type requesting it. Most of the bonds will cost around $100. State license bonds generally are in the $200 to $300 range depending on your state, your credit score, and type of license you are applying for.

Are license or permit bonds based on credit?

Ninety percent of these bonds do not require a credit check.  Most State Contractor license and permit bonds do require you to have a credit score of above 700. If your credit is below that minimum we are still able to get you the bond but they are just more expensive.

What information do you need?

We just need to know the name of the entity requiring bond (city, village, town or state), the amount of the bond, your company name and address and type of contractor you are (plumbing contractor, roofing contractor, general contractor, etc.). If the type of bond requires a credit check, we will need the Social Security Number of at least one of the owners.
