Hawaii Auto Dealer Bonds

A dealer bond is made to protect purchasers from dealers not following the law. If a dealer commits fraud or misrepresents the vehicle in any way that leads to a purchaser paying above the value of the vehicle, the bond will reimburse the purchaser. However, the dealer is not off the hook – they will still have to pay back the surety. Click Apply Now below and let Jet get you covered.

The bond amount for dealers in Hawaii depends on the type of vehicle being sold and the number of vehicles sold per month. See pricing and find more information below.
