The Texas ready-mix surety bond is a maximum $15,000 surety bond required of trucks who transport concrete within certain municipalities, cities, or towns in Texas.
The bond has a single purpose: It protects the localities from any damages caused on the highways by a truck which transports concrete and weighs more than 34,000 pounds.
Of note the Texas ready-mix surety bond protects others.
This surety bond is does not, therefore, protect the ready-mix driver, the company, or employees in any way.
Rather, the bond is a financial guarantee that damages --- up to the bond’s face amount --- will be covered in the even of an accident on Texas highways where the bond is required.
Unlike an insurance policy, any claims paid on a surety bond must always be reimbursed in full by the owner (also known as the principal) of the surety bond.
Once issued, this surety bond is valid for one year and must be renewed annually to remain in compliance with the statutes.
