Finding out someone you care for has been arrested in Alameda County can be an extremely stressful. You may be torn between wanting to get them out of jail as fast as possible and taking the time to make sure you get the best deal on bail. You may even be considering opening up your Yellow Pages or hopping on the Internet in order to get a list of companies to call in order to shop rates. Unfortunately, this does little more than waste valuable time.
The bail industry in this state is regulated by the California Department of Insurance. They, not individual Alameda bail bonds companies, set the rate at which we’re to charge our clients. That rate is 10%. It is against the law for bondsmen to charge more or less than the legal rate. If a person’s bail has been set at $10,000, you can expect to pay $1,000 to purchase a bond.
You should know there are companies that use deceptive marketing in order to get clients through the door. They may advertise offering discount, 5% bail bonds but you will soon find that 5% if the amount you’d need to put down in order to be eligible for a payment plan. The 10% total rate will still carry.
At Adelante Bail Bonds we may not be able to sell you discount Alameda bail bonds but we can offer you professional, confidential service.
