If you have never been asked to help get someone out of jail before the idea of needing to hire a Berkeley bail bondsman can feel overwhelming. There are dozens of companies listed in the local yellow pages and even more if you turn your search to the Internet. All companies are required by law to charge the same, 10% rate. Does that mean they all provide the same quality of service?
Every company operates a bit differently from the next. You will want to ask the bondsman you’re speaking with lots of questions about how their company operates before you sign any paperwork. Some offer payment plans, others require you pay up front in full. Some accept debit and credit cards whereas others transact only in cash. Will they require you post collateral or can they help you with no collateral bail bonds? Are you required to come into their office to fill out the necessary paperwork or do they offer the option of online bail bonds by fax and email for added speed and convenience? Do they operate 24-7 or do they keep standard business hours? These are all important points to consider before you decide who you want to work with.
