Many Perris bail bonds professionals have worked with clients who have tried to haggle them on price. If people have never needed to hire a bondsman before it is not uncommon for them to be unfamiliar with the process. Most people think the bondsman’s fee can be haggled or negotiated. Can you get a better price if you pay in full? Can you get an even deeper discount if you can pay right now, in cash?
The cost to purchase bail bonds in Perris is not set by individual agents. You may be surprised to learn that the fee a bondsman charges their clients is set according to state law. The commercial bail industry is overseen by the California Department of Insurance (DOI), and the DOI has set that rate at 10%. If a bondsman charges more or less than the set legal rate they can be stripped of their license, be fined, and can even face criminal prosecution and jail time.
There are some unscrupulous companies that will put up signage offering 2% or 5% bail bonds. This is little more than a deceptive marketing tactic. Once the client enters their office and begins the paperwork process, they soon learn that the reduced percentage on the sign refers to the amount of money they need to put down if they want to move forward with a payment plan. The full 10% will need to be paid after all.
