How do I compare bail bond companies service, price and hidden costs?
Qualifications for bonds are not just based on credit report as many people believe. They are based on several things such as who co signer for the defendant will be, job history length of time, income, if there will be more than one co signer, how long you have lived at you residence, history in city or county. You do not need to own property. Collateral is not always needed.
What is the difference in service: You are an important client and should be treated that way.

- No Haggle Pricing
- Payment Plans that work for you
- Clear explanation of terms
- Is there an annual renewal fee (bonds expire 1 year)
- What happens if there was an accident and I didn’t make it to court on time? Will they rewrite the bond or forfeit you and take you to jail? What are the cost?

The bond company is ultimately responsible for you showing up to court. They assess risk and have the right to surrender you at anytime. Your money will not be returned unless you go to a hearing in court and win it back. This can be a huge hassle and be distracting in an already difficult time.
Hidden cost: Make sure you consider the hidden costs such as annual renewal fees, reinstatement fees, late payment fees and interest.
