Business Services Bonds Information
Business Services Bonds
Business Services Bonds are also know as Janitorial Bonds, Fidelity Bonds or Employee Dishonesty Bonds. They are the only bonds in the surety classes that do not have a definitive obligee. These bonds are used to give a level of security to clients that hire your company to preform a function, such as dog walking, cleaning your home or office, handyman repairs and so on. This bond will not insure an injury or breakage or even the completion of the job. It insures that in the event that something is stolen by one of your employees, your client may file a claim on the bond. If the claim is paid out by the surety company, you will then be responsible to repay the surety company. Business Services Bonds are great marketing tools used by legitimate businesses to stand out from the competition, and purchasing one can be the difference between winning a job or losing out to your competition. Almost all potential clients require proof that a business is bonded prior to awarding them the job, because having a bond demonstrates trustworthiness and credibility to both current and future clients.
Which Bond Amount Should I Choose?
The most important thing to consider when deciding how much coverage you need is where your company will be providing services. Because business service bonds protect your clients from theft committed by one of your employees, some business types require greater bond amounts than others.
