Locksmiths generally offer "on premises" residential and commercial services can benefit greatly from fidelity bond protection. The coverage is an inexpensive way to offer peace of mind to customers and legally advertise as a "bonded locksmith". This type of crime coverage is often referred to as a "third party fidelity bond" or "dishonesty bond". These business services bonds may be written on a blanket basis that cover all clients or client/contract-specific basis for a individual and entities that require dishonesty coverage as part of their vendor requirements. A third party fidelity bond covers the dishonest acts of employees that provide services "on the premises" of clients. Employee theft of client property is common. Approximately seventy five percent of retail and labor employees steal from their employers or employer's clients at some point. Those losses often account for a painful portion a firm's total income. Your carpet cleaning business may be vulnerable to losses like these.
Background and reference checks are helpful practices however there is no guarantee that a cleaning service will not commit a dishonest act. One large loss can zero a handyman company's total annual income or worse. A client lawsuit against a contractor can result in bankruptcy and irreparable reputation damage. Employee theft is the cause of over a quarter of business failures. A locksmith bond in full force and effect can mean the difference between closing the operation or running a profitable business that enjoys the trust of its community.
