bonded title guy near conroe?

Hey mh. Is there areputable guy near conroe that can do a bonded title near conroe? I heard chad, the magic man, does these for people, but i dont really want to go all the way out there. If he's the best around though, screw it, ill do it. I want to get this ball rolling on monday. Anyone closer to conroe or montgomery? Also, will the bike need to be inspected or running? Because its not there yet...

There are people all over that do bonded titles just Google it you will find someone in conroe. There isn't really a person that is the best at it. All they are doing is issuing a bond saying they will assume responsibility if someone tries to make a claim on the title in the future. This sticks with the title for 2 years. You take this bond down to the courthouse and they issue a title. To get the title issued the bike will have to be inspected they will ask for a copy of it. I did a bonded title on my stang it was a nightmare. It took almost 4 months to get a title. Never again will I deal with that. The most important thing is make sure there are no leins on the bike because they will find them and it will be just more headache. Good luck and if you got questions or need help with it give me a shout and I will try to walk you threw it. Your best bet is to get it running first.

There are plenty of threads that discuss the bonded title in detail. Nothing difficult about it just time consuming. You can even do it all by mail if you're not in a hurry.

Bike doesn't need to be running and/or inspected for a title. Get your bonded title rolling and then after bike is running get it inspected and do the registration. But if you never get bike running you've basically just wasted all that money spent on sales tax and surety bond.

Exactly why do the title work if its not running you can't get registration if its not inspected. Bonded titles are not cheap by any means. Probably gonna be couple hundred just for the bond. Better to get it running and inspected. But to each his own.

An issue of time. Doing bonded title by mail will take months, doing it in person will take weeks. Registration and inspection can be done in a couple hours but only after you have the title. OP states he's in a hurry so will have to decide if the risk is worth it. Same risk he is taking doing a bunch of cosmetic restore on his bike build prior to knowing if it starts, runs and shifts.

i did my bonded title in one trip to the TxDOT VTR, 1 phone call to my insurance company/bank, and 2 trips to the DMV in a few days. If my insurance company were local, it could have been done all in one day, but I had to wait for my bond to arrive in the mail. If I didn't have a typo on the bond paperwork, it would have only been 1 trip to the DMV.

The bond didn't cost much. I think the rate that I paid was $20 / $1000 bond through my insurance company. I recall them being higher than calling around, but I like to deal with them. I think the bond value had to be 1.5 times the NADA value of the vehicle.

So if the value of you vehicle is $10,000: you would need a bond for $15,000 and through my bank, I would have had to pay $300.

The bonded title process isn't as daunting as people make it out to be.

I got my title done today. Everything was done in 3 visits, and it was fairly painless. I went to the title office on Washington street, paid $15 for a letter. Then an insurance co in conroe did my bond for $100. Today i took everything i had amassed from this point to the local title n reg office and paid $98 for title and plate. I had to get insurance to get this last part. I got a year through progressive for like 140... Now i just need to get the starter problem to be done with.
