Georgia Surety Coverage with BondExchange

BondExchange provides comprehensive and complete access to every surety bond that the state of Georgia and its local municipalities may require from local businesses. Agents can utilize our platform to locate the exact surety bonds that their clients need, instantly provide those clients with quotes online, and then complete those applications and bond purchases with a few clicks. This quick and easy process takes just a few steps from beginning to end. Below are just a few of the different types of surety bonds that you may need to quote for Georgia business clients.

Lottery Retailer Bonds

Convenience stores that sell lottery tickets in Georgia must file a bond with the Georgia Lottery Corporation (“GLC”) to become a vendor in the state. The bond amount is determined by the GLC based on the size of the contract entered into between the vendor and the GLC.

Motor Vehicle Dealer Bonds

Under Georgia law, businesses need to secure a surety bond if they want to operate a used motor vehicle dealership or a used motor vehicle parts dealer. These bonds, which are issued for the benefit of the state’s Board of Registration Used Motor Vehicle Division, can range in value from $10,000 for the parts dealer to $35,000 for the auto dealer.

Financial Services Bonds

Providing financial services in Georgia often means taking out a surety bond. Whether operating as an appraisal management company, collection agency, insurance broker, insurance counselor, or securities dealer, your clients will require a surety bond to operate legally.

Alcoholic Beverage Bonds

The sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages in Georgia often requires companies to be bonded. There are brewpub license bonds, distilled spirits representative bonds, tax bonds for liquor brokers, manufacturers, importers, and wholesalers, retailer bonds for selling wine and malt beverages, and bonds for wine wholesalers and manufacturers.

City or County Surety Bonds

A number of cities and counties in Georgia require companies doing business in their jurisdiction to hold specific surety bonds. Examples include erosion and soil settlement control contractors in Kennesaw, pawnbrokers in Savannah, and electricians in Valdosta.

Miscellaneous Business Bonds

A number of unrelated businesses in Georgia require surety bond coverage. They include small firearm sales, scrap tire carriers, agricultural product dealers, and septic tank contractors.
