Florida Motor Vehicle Dealer - New for Clearwater
The Florida Motor Vehicle Dealer - New is a $25,000.00 bond.
This bond is available in 1 year term.
The Franchise (New Motor Vehicle Dealer) Bond is very similar to the Used MVD bond that we offer. The difference is that franchise auto dealers sell new vehicles (they can sell used vehicles also). A surety bond protects the consumer against damages due to fraud, defaulting on a contract, or other negative and wrongful behaviors on the part of a business providing the service or product. In the case of new or used motor vehicles, the bond guarantees that the dealer will comply with the federal, state, and sometimes local laws related to motor vehicles.
Ashton Agency has a 99% approval rate and offers the Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond for Florida car dealers for one, two or three years.
