What Surety Agencies Provide that Insurance Companies Can’t

1024 683 Patrick J. Thomas Agency

While you have options when looking to obtain a surety bond, there is no better place to go than a specialized surety agency. It is possible to obtain surety bonds through commercial insurance companies, but the experience and service you will receive by working with an agency is something you won’t get anywhere else.

What can a surety agency offer you that larger commercial insurance companies cannot?

Experience and a Focus on Surety

A common issue with insurance companies is who your contact is and what do they actually know about the specific surety bond you need. There can be a lot of job turnover wihtin insurance companies so you may not talk to the same person twice. Surety agencies work on procuring surety bonds first. While some agencies, like The Patrick J. Thomas Agency, do work with clients on liability insurance, our primary focus is on getting you the bonds you need and being available when you need us.

No one understands the surety process better than our surety agents. Whether you need an injunction bond, supersedeas bond or any other type of surety bond, we will help you through the application and approval process.

Direct Access to Bonding Companies

A common result when working with an online insurance carrier is no direct communication. Your request is typically sent to a series of middle-men who put your farther away from the person who is reviewing, and ultimately approving, your bond application. This can slow down the process and add in unnecessary costs.

When you work with a surety agency who has direct connections with surety companies, you will increase your chances to becoming approved quickly. This is particularly important for attorneys who are working on time-constraints and need to get a bond quickly for court-ordered injunctions or appeals.

Better Bonds at Better Prices

At The Patrick J. Thomas Agency, we work with federal and state-approved surety companies. We help you through the process and provide end-to-end support and guidance. From determining which bonds fits your needs the best to ensuring that your costs are kept to a minimum, we do not stop working until you get the right bond at the right price.
