Most people have never needed to hire a Millbrae bondsman before. It is not unusual to have a lot of questions about what to look for and how the process works. A quick Internet search will indicate the cost to purchase bail bonds is 10% of the defendant’s bail amount, and that this rate is the same throughout California. Does this mean that all companies are alike?
Not at all. Every bondsman in Millbrae is required to charge 10% but that is not to say that all companies are the same. Some offer their clients the option of online bail bonds by fax and email. Others always require people come to their office in order to fill out paperwork. Can the person you are speaking with offer you a monthly payment plan? Will they charge interest or financing fees? Are you permitted to pay with a debit or credit card or does the company only transact in cash? Do they offer no collateral bail bonds? Some companies always require collateral be posted, others will only request it under very certain circumstances.
Lastly, do you get the sense that you can genuinely trust the bondsman you’re working with? Do you feel as if they care about your individual situation, or does it seem as if they are trying to “wheel and deal” you? Being asked to help get someone out of jail can be one of the most stressful things you will ever experience. Hiring a bondsman you can trust doesn’t have to be.
