First of all, you have to prepare a list of all the insurance companies which are providing their services in bonding businesses. You can search the companies on the internet by the help of any search engine. You have to make sure that all the companies which you have searched are providing their services at present because there are many which have stopped operating or not selling any policies for the time being. In addition, you can also search for the potential companies from the yellow pages, but make sure that the pages are up-to-date. After making a good list, you have to contact with their representative in order to evaluate the most suitable companies for you.
After gathering all the necessary data regarding the companies, choose the one which provides you the most convenient and reliable bonding service for your business.
Now, gather all your data including your date of birth, name of business, office address, home address and social security card number. If you are running a partnership business, it is extremely important for you to give the same information to all your partners as the insurance company may randomly ask any question to any partner at any time to authenticate your application.
Then, you require the person who is going to be protected (obligee) at your place, at the visit of the insurance agent. It is really important for you to keep all the information confidential to avoid any kind of inconvenience afterwards. Moreover, you should discuss all the conditions of the bonding contract with the agent before submitting your application so as to keep your side safe.
You will have to submit your financial records to the agent along with your application. You must have some funds in your bank account to prove your solvency to the insurance company.
