    Hi all,

    I'm looking for recommendations on good surety bond companies.

    We have good credit, partner has been an agent for a few years, and now have direct shipper accounts that we can broker.

    Any recommendations on good surety bond companies? My research shows some, but can't seem to find any reviews on them:
    -Great American Insurance
    -Pacific Financial Group
    -Liberty National Financial Corp​

    Any recommendations?
    Thanks for the help.

    Carriers may stay away if you sign on with Pacific Financial. They've gained a bad rep for not honoring claims against bonds.

    They appear from the carrier's perspective to be the bond carrier that the really sleazy brokers resort to in order to protect their bond. I'm not saying your group is like that but it could be a case of guilt by association from the perspective of a carrier.

    The thing with Pacfic Financial is they make it easy for you to get into the business. I like them.

    I will say we have Hudson banned. Any broker using Hudson is because they’ve screwed over people before and they’re the only ones who will take them.

    Most of the time the past repeats in the future.
