Broker Bond: Special Rate for DAT Customers

Is your broker bond coming up for renewal on October 1? You're not alone. According to Adam Green of Integro Insurance Brokers, around 90% of his freight broker customers renew their bond on October 1 because that was the date the minimum bond requirement increased from $10,000 to $75,000 four years ago. They start calling him about renewal at this time of year.

If you think you're paying too much for your broker bond, consider getting a quote on the DAT Broker Bond. It has several advantages over other bonds, including:
