Hello All.

Can anyone recommend a good company that specializes in Surety bonds for Canadian transportation brokers.

I've noticed an extreme increase this year. just looking at different options.

Thanks.

We use The Guarantee Company Of North America, 954 Dundas St. Woodstock, ON 519 539 9868. The bond is obtained through our insurance broker, so I am not sure if you can go direct to this underwriter or not. The premium for us last year runs around $3000.00 for the 75k bond. I wouldn't be surprised if the rates have or will be going up this year. If you find someone who offers the bond at a significantly lower rate, please let us all know. As a broker, you know we're always looking for the "lowest rate"!

Marsh was about +/-$3000 also. Great company to work with, we've been loyal for many years.

Keep well,
Mike

Agreed Mike Jr. We use Marsh Canada for all of our other insurance needs, contingency cargo, general liability, errors and omissions, etc. Very knowledgeable and great to deal with.

$75,000 Freight bond is currently being offered at $3000 US.

There may be another option in the new year for about $2700 US.

Does anyone know any insurers that are willing to work with new freight brokers (> 3 years)?

The Guarantee Company Of North America has stated they are unable to insure us because we are a new company without full collateral.

Youngtea,

We have access to a insurer that will post your 75k bond with 0 collateral if you so wish.
