If you have never needed to hire a bondsman in Hayward, CA before you probably have no idea what to look for. If you have played around on the Internet you have likely found out the cost to purchase a bond will be 10%. That fee is uniform across the state of California and it has been set according to state law. If every company charges the same does that mean they all provide the same service? Is there anything that differentiates bondsman A from bondsman B?
When you begin calling bail bonds companies you will want to ask the person you are speaking with a number of questions. Are they licensed through the Department of Insurance? How long has their company been around? Are they in good standing with the Better Business Bureau? Do they keep 9-5 business hours or do they offer 24-7 service? Will they require the cost of the bond be paid for up front in cash, or do they offer financing for Alameda County bail bonds? Can you arrange payment via MasterCard, American Express, Visa, Discover, Western Union, wire transfer or direct bank deposit? These are all important things to consider when you’re about to hire an expert bondsman.
Do you need to go to their office to fill out paperwork, or do they offer online bail bonds by fax and email? Many people find that bail by fax and email is the fastest and most convenient way to get someone out of jail. Lastly, you will want to ask yourself if you feel you can trust the person you are speaking with. That is probably the most important factor of all.
