Commercial Surety Bonds

Coverage Direct Teams meet in Des Moines office

Coverage Direct Joins ZipBonds

Coverage Direct Surety Bonds is now part of ZipBonds – a commercial surety bonds broker providing instant and secure access to thousands of bonds. Here’s the backstory on how this relationship got started.

Back in 2016, before ZipBonds existed, co-owners Zach Mefferd and Ryan Swalve ran an independent insurance agency out of Des Moines, Iowa, called Coverage Direct. One day, Jim and Diane Brown, owners of Coverage Direct Surety Bonds in Texas, dropped by the Des Moines office.

“Both Zach and I were a little nervous,” Ryan mentioned, “but there was no need to be. Once we realized they were not stopping by to serve us papers, we all laughed and enjoyed meeting some really great people.”

“We have remained friends with Ryan and Zach for the last 7 years, and I was one of the first agents on the ZipBonds platform,” Jim shared. “Sadly, in December 2021, Diane passed away unexpectedly. It was a natural transition that ZipBonds acquire Coverage Direct Surety Bonds.” Jim added, “We are a family, and this is going to be better than ever!”

ZipBonds will retain Jim Brown on a part-time basis. The same great service you’ve come to expect from his team will continue with ZipBonds, and Jim will remain a point of contact.
