Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does a Surety Bond Cost in Alabama?

The type of bond you obtain determines the cost you will have to pay. Bonds typically have different amounts in every state. There are some exceptions, which have the same amount across the country. Your surety bond cost, also known as your premium, is a fraction of your bond’s full amount.

Your premium is determined by sureties on an individual basis. Sureties review your financial status, and watch your personal credit score particularly carefully, as an indicator of your financial reliability.

They also take into account other aspect of your finances, such as your financial statements, both personal or business ones. Furthermore, your personal industry experience is also of importance.

If you have a high credit score, your Alabama surety bond rate will be between 1%-4% of the total amount of your bond. So, for example, the cost of obtaining a $25,000 Alabama auto dealer bond would be between $250-$1000.

Alabama Bad Credit Surety Bonds Program

Many types of bonds can still be obtained even if you have a bad credit score. Applicants with a low or nonexistent score are invited to apply for a bond under our Bad Credit Surety Bonds program, which makes it possible for them to get bonded despite their credit difficulties, and at only slightly higher rates.

Rates under the Bad Credit program are higher, to accommodate the risk involved in bonding such applicants. They typically range between 5%-15% of the total amount of a bond.

Lance Surety Bonds always makes every effort to ensure that our applicants get only the lowest rates possible. Furthermore, all of our bonds are backed exclusively by the best sureties.

Licensed and bonded contractors in Alabama can also obtain their contract bonds through us at Lance. These bonds serve to guarantee the quality of contractor performance in accordance with the project contract or, in other cases, that contractors will fulfill all their obligations towards subcontractors and suppliers.
