Most people go their entire lives without ever needing to hire a bondsman. If the time comes where you are asked to help get a friend or family member out of jail you may be torn between wanting to move fast and wanting to take the time to make sure you get the best deal on a bond.
When people purchase big-ticket items retailers often give deep discounts if the client is able to pay up front, in full, in cash. You may be wondering if you can negotiate San Mateo bail bonds if you’re able to make your bondsman a similar offer.
Unfortunately this is not the case. The California Department of Insurance regulates the bail industry and they, not individual agents, set the rate at which we’re to charge our clients. That rate is 10%. It is actually against the law for people in our industry to offer 2% bail bonds service.
Some companies may advertise 2% San Mateo bail bonds but this is merely a deceptive marketing tactic used to get you through the door. That rate often refers to the amount the client would need to put down in order to be eligible for a payment plan. They soon find out the total cost will be 10% after all. On the other hand, if the bondsman is offering to sell you discounted bail bonds, you should know this person is committing a crime.
