How to Spot a Bad Bail Bond Company

How to Spot a Bad Bail Bond Company

At Andy Callif Bail Bonds, we are committed to helping to get your loved one out of jail in the most simple and cost-effective way. However, not all bail bond companies provide honest and reliable services like us.

The following are several signs you cannot trust your bail bondsman:

  • You receive a low quote – According to Ohio law, the initial payment is 10 percent of the bail amount. Anything lower means they’re taking shortcuts to reduce their price.
  • No license – One of the most important questions to ask any bondsman is if they have a license in the state. You could also ask for their license number. If a bondsman is reluctant to provide with their license details, you must avoid those who have something to hide.
  • Unable to answer questions about the bail process – The bail process is quite complex, which is why an experienced bail bondsman can help you navigate the intricacies of your loved one’s case. If a bondsman cannot answer important questions about the process, look elsewhere.
  • Negative online reviews – Many people do their due diligence and read online reviews of products and services before making a purchase. The same goes for bail bondsmen. Although one negative review shouldn’t deter you, if most of the reviews are negative, you should get a firm understanding of how a bail bond company treats their clients.

Since 1960, our Columbus bail bonds agents have helped many people through the bail process. Whether your loved one is facing state or federal criminal charges, we understand what it takes to help your loved one back home.
