A bid bond is a type of bond that is used in the bidding process of construction projects on a regular basis. When a large construction project is about to be started, the company that is contracting out the work will sometimes require contractors to submit a bid bond with their bid.

The bid bond is a type of bond that must be purchased by the contractor in order to guarantee that they are able to undertake the project that they are bidding on. This is a way to provide a guarantee to the company that is accepting bids. Without this type of bond, there is no way for the company to separate the real contractors from those that are not qualified for the job.

In some cases, contractors are unable to complete a job because they lack the financial means that are necessary for the process. By purchasing a bid bond, they certify that they have the financial means that are necessary to complete the job.

If the contractor does not go through with the process after submitting a bid, the company will receive the money from the bid bond so that they can be compensated for their time.
