AmeriPro Surety Bonds provides the Utah body shop bond for both first-time applicants and those applicants who need to renew an existing bond.
Below, we provide some information on licensing; however, again, we stress that existing Utah body shop businesses who want to renew their bond should also call our agency.
Utah Body shops are defined as the location(s) where the repair of vehicles damaged in accidents take place.
In Utah, body shops are regulated by the Motor Vehicle Division.

The main purpose of the $20,000 Utah body shop bond is to protect consumers from any fraud, and willful criminal activity committed by a licensed body shop in the course of business.
The body shop bond is therefore for the benefit of the consumer; it is not a form of liability insurance for the company at all.
All Utah body shops, no matter when a license is issued, have a renewal date of June 30th of each year. The Utah body shop bond should be issued so as to run concurrent with your license and so there are no gaps in bond coverage.
A lapse in coverage could result in suspension by the state of Utah.
