Those who are buying, trading, or selling (consignment included) melted or junk metal or other items of personal property must be licensed as a secondhand dealer with the City of Las Vegas. The $5,000 Secondhand Dealer Bond is used to ensure that the dealer will refund purchasers when refunds are due.
Jet offers the Secondhand Dealer Bond as a financial guarantee to the City of Las Vegas that you will not cause harm to its citizens through your business dealings; if you do, the bond will reimburse those that were injured.
You can purchase your Secondhand Dealer Bond for as low as $10 with Jet’s monthly payment plan. Or, you can buy the bond by the year as shown below.
The costs displayed in the chart above are guaranteed for your Secondhand Dealer Bond. No waiting for approval or credit checks required.

Jet will mail the original bond form to the City of Las Vegas for filing unless you chose to mail it yourself. You can choose to do so during checkout if you need to submit the bond with other paperwork. Once ready, the bond must be mailed to:

Monthly payment plans will stay active as long as payments go through, but bonds purchased by the year will need to be renewed. Jet will send you a notice via mail and email that you can easily fill out to renew your bond.
If you do not need the Secondhand Dealer Bond anymore, send our team an email to [email protected]. We will notify the City to begin the 30-day cancellation process. Monthly payments will end after the cancellation is official, and annual terms will be calculated into a refund for the time left of the bond term.
The main objective of the Secondhand Dealer Bond is to provide refunds when the dealer has not completed a full due refund. A dealer may be required to provide a refund, for example, on a transaction for a piece of property that has been illegally obtained or recorded. A secondhand dealer must comply with Title 6, Chapter 74 of the Las Vegas Municipal Code, as well as Sections 647.105 to 647.132 of the Nevada Revised Statutes.
If the dealer does not record the item or parts accurately in the books of records or otherwise falsifies the records there may be issues with the sale that lead to damages to the purchaser. Additionally, if the dealer has reason to believe that item of personal property or metal scraps in their possession has been stolen, the dealer is obligated to report it to the chief of police or sheriff; selling such an item would cause loss to a purchaser. If any kind of misleading or fraudulent behavior causes monetary loss, the dealer still has a chance to avoid bond claims by fulfilling the refund once the issue has been brought to attention.
If the purchaser is not refunded, they may file a claim on the bond to get their money back. Contact Jet immediately if you receive a claim filing. We will review the evidence and see if there is a way to reconcile the claim. If the claim is legitimate, we are bound to pay out the claim up to the full $5,000 limit. You are ultimately responsible for your actions that caused the claim and will be required to pay Jet back.
