Why Smart Contractors Choose The Common Sense Surety

May 22, 2017

Contractors have probably heard the misleading messages: “That surety is small; their T-listing isn't high enough; we are bigger so we're better." When in reality the company this focused on common sense surety, onflexibility over one-size-fits-all formulas, and has the backing of trusted reinsurers to cover a contractor’s larger needs, is also the one that gives them first class service. Ask any contractor or professional surety agent. Merchants’ common sense underwriting and first class service are hard to beat. 


Merchants Bonding Company™ is among the 15 largest sureties in the United States (SFAA May 2017), with an A.M. Best rating of "A" Excellent of better since 1958. (Best's Review July 2016). We operate both Merchants Bonding Company (Mutual) and Merchants National Bonding, Inc. under the Merchants Bonding brand; and our brand promise is "common sense underwriting and first class service." 


We write account of various sizes. We do not have a minimum premium requirement so we can write smaller accounts with infrequent bond needs all the way up to large accounts with our reinsurance partners. 


Professional surety agents understand that biggest isn't always the best. Ask your surety agent about the power of common sense underwriting.
