California has over 300 surety bond types for several industries. Jet's comprehensive database covers it all—car dealers, mortgage brokers, insurance adjusters, contractors, and more.
Surety bonds protect the public and land in cases where the person holding the bond (the principal) fails to uphold their obligations. An example would be a California motor vehicle dealer tampering with a vehicle's odometer to sell it for a higher price. The customer that purchased the vehicle could file a claim against the dealer's license bond to recover damages. The surety company (Jet) covers these damages up to the bond limit, but then the dealer is liable to pay the full claim amount back. Read more in our Surety Bond Claims Guide.
With Jet, you can go through the application, get a quote, and purchase your bond within minutes. There are only a few scenarios where underwriter review is required—think large limit bonds (over $100,000) and riskier bonds (probate bonds). Eliminating middlemen brokers and agents allows us to have a streamlined bond process, no matter the bond type. This also means we can offer convenient monthly payments and file the bond for you when applicable.
