Insurance Bonding

With years of experience working as an independent company, McLean & Shaw recognizes the need to protect owners from liability and minimize the risk of operating a company using bonding insurance.

Bonding is based on the services a company performs and ensures a guarantee of payment for incidences like client property damage or employee fraud. Several types of businesses from travel agencies and transportation companies to contractors and security firms benefit from the reduced risk in having some form of bonding insurance. Bonding insurance not only lends credibility to your firm, it’s also required by law for some businesses. In fact, most government contracts are required to work exclusively with bonded businesses.

Our team of experts will work alongside you and carefully explain the options available, such as contract bonds (which cover client compensation if contractual obligations aren’t met), fidelity bonds (which cover such situations as theft, fraud and property damage), as well as a number of miscellaneous bonding options that might benefit your business.
