We are now among the largest commercial and contract bond surety producing agencies in the U.S.

South Coast Surety has used or uses most of the available admitted surety markets in the area. Please see our Market List for some of the surety companies we either presently or have previously written with.




Included in our many surety bond programs is our Bad Credit Surety Bond Program.

We have a number of surety companies that will approve commercial and miscellaneous surety bonds for individuals and companies with less than standard credit.

While The Above Program is not for Contract Bonds,
We do have an 
Express Bond program that provides aggressive support.

Almost any commercial and miscellaneous bond may be written through our Bad Credit Surety Bond Program, as long as there are no prior surety losses nor child support issues.

This includes Mortgage Broker Bonds, Finance Lender Bonds, Motor Vehicle Dealer Bonds, Contractor’s License Bonds, Court Bonds, Permit Bonds, General License Bonds and most other surety bonds.

Many start up businesses are also subject to bonding declinations. This is not because of bad credit, but a LACK of credit history to review. New companies may also qualify under this Bond Program.
