What is a performance bond?

A performance bond is essentially a form of guarantee provided to an employer by a contractor/sub-contractor. The bond provides protection for the employer against the risk of a contractor not fulfilling what’s been agreed in their contract.

Guiding you through the process

Performance Bonds have long been a part of large construction contracts. If you’ve never had to supply a performance bond before, it can be a confusing and unnerving process.

Here at Trade Direct Insurance we know how important it is for bonds to be handled correctly for your business to win jobs and grow. We’re able to access Performance Bonds from some of the major bond providers, so that your bond and your business are secure.

Making it simple

Construction contracts are becoming more and more complicated with additional requirements being imposed on sub-contractors.
With 30 years in the industry, Trade Direct Insurance understand the possible difficulties involved of obtaining Performance Bonds and aim to make the process as smooth as possible, providing your employer or contractor with confidence in your business.
