Surety Bonds

You may think you’re fully covered, but sometimes you need a bond to guarantee a financial obligation.

General liability insurance, professional liability insurance, commercial auto insurance, worker’s compensation insurance, commercial umbrella policy and cyber insurance may not be enough in some circumstances. Cragin & Pike can perform an in-depth review of your business and financial wellbeing and make sound recommendations.

A bond, also known as a surety bond, is an agreement between three entities: the principal (the entity that purchases a bond), the obligee (the entity that receives the benefit) and Cragin & Pike. The bond doesn’t pay for claims, but provides a financial guarantee that the entity purchasing the bond will reimburse the obligee if the principal defaults, fails to fulfill its obligations, or a claim is made.

Surety Application Process

When applying for a bond, we bring to the table a thorough  understanding of how surety companies work, as well as an accountant’s mindset. We help you dissect your financial statements and present them to the surety company in a way that enhances your story.

Throughout the process, we will guide you so can avoid many of the common pitfalls. We help convey your story and highlight the qualifications that make you the right contractor for the job.

Confidentiality Matters

The surety application process can be quite invasive. In some cases, we end up knowing more about you than even your spouse. That’s why building trust is critical. Our pledge to you is one of respect and confidentiality. Much like your attorney, our lips are sealed.

Expanding Your Capacity

We are your first call when you bid a project that is outside of your capacity. We take the role of the negotiator with the surety company and present why the risk is acceptable. You can feel confident that we are championing for your success and always positioning you in the most favorable light.

We have associations with both clients and surety companies that began over 60 years ago.
