Van Meter Surety Bond Overview

Surety bonds are the life blood for companies in the competitive and high-risk business of contracting. At Van Meter Insurance, we understand that securing a bond program requires an all-encompassing look at a company – not just their balance sheet. The quality of management is of the utmost importance – this ensures that a company avoids risks and creates conditions for success. Our goal is to develop a lasting personal relationship with each and every client – we want to understand every in and every out of your business. We believe that our expertise in the surety business and the partnership we create with your company will ultimately help to improve your operations. Through our in-depth knowledge of how sureties underwrite and assess your business, we are in a position to negotiate the best surety program terms and conditions available in the marketplace.

Based on our large number of construction clients spanning all areas of contracting, we have become familiar with strategic management decisions and can also help provide our client partners with advice and counsel on many important management issues.

Our surety bonding professionals have expertise with:

  • Job Cost/Accounting systems
  • Bid/Contract specification and bond form reviews
  • Annual review of account rates, capacity needs, and indemnity
  • Financial Planning/Analysis to maximize bond capacity
  • GC-CM/Subcontractor/Project owner prequalification

Van Meter Insurance understands the importance of bonding. It can be the difference in whether you are awarded a contract or not. With the climate of the construction marketplace, there has been no time where this is more important. We are staffed to deliver superior service, dedicated to our client assignments, and have the experience to handle any and all specialized bond needs.
