How much does a $30,000 surety bond cost?

The cost of your $30,000 surety bond will, in most cases, be a yearly premium in the 0.75%-2.5% range. This translates into payments between $225 and $750. This sum, however, applies to applicants with a good credit score. Bad credit applicants usually pay between 2.5% and 10%, i.e. between $750 and $3,000 a year.

Getting a $30,000 surety bond with bad credit

You can get a $30,000 surety bond even if you have bad credit, but– as the table shows– the lower your score, the higher your premium. If you have past due items or other red flags in your credit report, this can further impact your credit score.

However, in most cases you will still get bonded. If you are receiving a quote which you think may be too high, you can talk to one of our surety bond agents and they will happily provide personalized advice on how you can build a stronger application.
