What’s the Cost of a $25,000 Indiana Auto Dealer Bond?
Getting bonded doesn’t mean paying the whole bond amount. Instead, you have to cover only a small percentage of it, called the bond premium.
Your bond cost depends on the strength of your finances, with your credit score having the biggest importance. The higher it is, the lower your premium would get.

When you apply with your surety, it will take a close look at your finances. It may consider your company finances, fixed and liquid assets, and professional experience. You can consult our detailed surety bond cost guide for a complete breakdown of how your premium is determined.
