How Much Does a Colorado Surety Bond Cost?

The cost of a surety bond in Colorado depends on the bond type. For example, a $50,000 bond is required by law for auto dealers, but you are not required to pay the full bond amount. You can purchase the bond from a surety company by paying a premium. 

The premium ranges from 1% to 10%, so the auto dealer bond cost starts at $500 for well-qualified applications. We provide many types of surety bonds.

For all Colorado surety bonds, applicants with a 700-credit score or higher may receive a 1% to 3% bond premium. The premium rate for applicants with a score between 600 and 699 is 3% to 5%. For lower credit scores, the cost is 5% to 10%.

In addition to personal credit score, the cost of a bond is determined by the applicant’s professional experience, liquidity and assets.
