"Due to extreme time constraints, CG Bonds helped me put a bond in place in 24 hours. Their extremely efficient process made our experience straightforward, which was appreciated in the highly stressful situation we were in. CG Bonds were very helpful with any queries that we had and got the job done swiftly. I would 100% recommend them to anyone who needs a bond."   

"We approached CG Bonds as we had zero options left! We had almost given up on acquiring a performance bond. After approaching several bondsmen and not getting anywhere, we came to CG Bonds with little hope. Needless to say, the entire team were accommodating, and they made the whole process quick and easy. We would recommend them to anyone who needs a bond, and we will definitely be using them again for future projects."

"I have previously shopped around different brokers and always found CG Bonds to be around 60% cheaper than alternative brokers. Every time I have placed a bond through them, I have been happy with the service which I received and therefore couldn’t recommend them any more!"

"I first came to CG Bonds after I searched [online] for a performance bond broker, as my knowledge on them was next to none! Through the excellent customer service that I received, I was able to understand what they were and how the process of obtaining one worked. The process with CG Bonds is always simple, and they are a pleasure to work with."
