Website: This seems to be very clear, but not to others. Click on their site after you have searched on the internet for this particular company in your city. Just take a look around. You are going in the right direction if there is more information on the web than content attempting to sell their services. Some businesses do nothing but try to offer their services to you, i.e. 5 percent down, zero down, available financing. If you’ve seen references of these on their whole website, exit. If you see a lot of details and nothing but outstanding information about the operation, give them a call and see if they can back it up.
Ask a lot of questions: Call them once you have settled on a few firms. Start asking them questions about the mechanism, how things work, how much it costs, and how long it might take. If the organisation is responding with patience and knowledge to the questions, continue with them. Hang up and call a different bail agent if they start getting irritated and it seems like they only want your money and continue to ask you to sign papers and also avoid the questions you may have.
License: Ask the organisation for its licence number for the bail bonds.
Better Business Bureau and others: Search the Better Business Bureau icon on their site. And if it’s not there, head over to the BBB website and look at it. See what the ranking is for them. It is important to avoid any company below an A-. In this sector, it’s very straightforward to have outstanding customer service because if the company has any grievances, their grade would be lower and can therefore be avoided.
Zero down: Don’t call a business that advertises Zero down, 5% down, 5% bail, or some iteration of the above. Also, 90% of the businesses that advertise like this are typically not a good business to call. There are corporations that want to push the law and morality too far, as in all industries. Look the other way if you find yourself staring at a website or advertising with these kinds of comments. It’s called, first of all, bait and switch. These individuals are going to do anything to “get you in the door.” Then they let you know what the actual terms and conditions are while you are there. There is no discount or percentage off the cost of the bail bond, as you will find out.
