Learn More About Car Wash Bonds

New York City and the state of California require car wash owners to file surety bonds to ensure payment of employee wages, which means they're required for car washes in those jurisdictions to be licensed and legally operational. Car was bonds can also protect consumers by making sure car wash owners maintain healthy and safe environments.

Contact one of our experienced surety experts to apply for your Car Wash Bond today.

How much will my car wash bond cost?

California and New York City car wash bond amounts are both set at $150,000. Annual premiums for highly qualified applicants start at 1-3% of the total bond amount. Application underwriting, which includes a review of the car wash owner's credit, is required to price each bond.

SuretyBonds.com also offers an exclusive bad credit bonding program, which means we can approve 99% of applicants regardless of credit. Nonstandard applicants with poor credit might be required to provide financials for underwriting and should expect to pay premiums calculated at 3% or more of the bond amount. Because they guarantee financial payments, car wash bonds cannot be financed.
