Contract Bonds

BondExchange has programs for contractors of all sizes and experience to help your contractor clients obtain surety bonds to grow their business.

License Bonds

Many businesses must purchase the proper business licenses and bond coverage in order to conduct business, including retail and medical marijuana, lottery retailers, and private investigators.

Motor Vehicle Dealer Bonds

New and used motor vehicle and power-sports dealers and salespeople must purchase surety bond coverage. Most dealers need a $50,000 surety bond to become licensed with the Auto Industry Division.

Mortgage Loan Originator Bonds

Colorado mortgage loan originators are required to maintain errors and omissions insurance as well as a surety bond. The surety bond can be purchased individually for each MLO in the amount of $25,000, or in groups. For groups of less than 20 licenses, the bond amount is $100,000, and for groups of 20 or more, the bond amount is $200,000.

Dishonesty Bonds

Dishonesty Bonds protect business owners and their customers in the event of employee theft. These bonds are common for businesses that perform work on a client's property, such as janitorial companies, home improvement contractors, or home health services companies.

Miscellaneous Bonds

These bonds fall outside of the categories listed and include utility deposit bonds, union wage and welfare bonds, and fuel supply bonds, among others.
