The new $75,000 transportation broker surety bond, also known as an BMC-84 bond, is now available via an online application from Surety1. The BMC-84 Surety Bonds or ICC Transportation Bonds are required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Effective October 1, 2013, the required amount of the surety bond is increasing from $10,000.00 to $75,000.
Licensed property brokers and freight forwarders will have until October 31 to have the bond in place or face suspension of their license. Forwarders and Brokers of household goods will be required to post a $25,000 surety bond versus the current bond amount of $10,000.
Christine Boscacci, Vice President of Surety1, says, “The overall surety industry is very competitive right now. As such, we have more markets available to provide quotes for the $75,000.00 bond than we did for the $10,000 bond that is the current requirement." Surety1 will be able to provide multiple quotes for most applicants and secure the lowest possible price and the best customer service in the industry.
