There are hundreds of different bail bonds agencies out there and you want make sure you picked a good one. You want to make sure that the agency you picked a bail bonds agent that you can trust with your friend or loved one’s release. Here are five signs we at Contra Costa Bail Bond Store feel show that a bail agent is worthy of your trust.
Their bail bondsman license number is displayed were you can easily see it.
You always want to make sure a bail bondsman has a current bail agent license. Don’t ever be afraid to ask to see it. If the agent refuses to show it to you or tries to talk you out of seeing it, walk out and find someone else. It is illegal to bail someone out of jail without a current license and you don’t want to deal with something illegal..
They’ll give you information over the phone.
A commonly practiced sales tactic in all types of business is for the agent to make you come down to the office. It is believed you will be more willing to agree to a price once you’ve put in the time to go down to the office. If they won’t give you any information over the phone, they are trying to trick you into paying more for the bail. The more information about the bail they’ll give over the phone, the more trustworthy the bail agent is.
They accept multiple forms of payment.
You here all the time of people giving money to scam artists claiming to be something they aren’t. Once they get the cash, they disappear. Cash is harder to trace and refund if whoever you paid runs off with it. It is why crooks will only accept cash. Bail agencies that only accept cash should be avoided.
The company has been in business and helping people for a long time.
The longer a company has been in business and the more people they’ve helped, the more trustworthy it is. Companies have to treat their clients well to stay in business because word of mouth is the best form of advertisement. Too many bad reviews and a company will go out of business.
They explain the back of the surety bail bond agreement for you.
Any bail agent can give you a contract to sign, but a trustworthy one will explain every inch of the document to you. Before signing a contract is the time when you need to ask any questions you might have and the bail agent should answer all of them. If they don’t then you may want to consider going somewhere else.
