When you are looking for professional help with something, the amount of time the company has been in business should be a deciding factor for you. Another, just as important, factor to consider will be how past clients feel about the company. You should consider both of these factors when looking at any company, especially a bail bond company.
Nobody likes the idea of needing to bail someone out of jail. Unfortunately, thousands of people are arrested every single day. There is a good chance that you may need to bail someone out in the future.
When looking at a bail bond company, you need to consider how long the company has been in business, and how many past customers complain about the company. In the bail industry, there are many companies out there that love to take advantage of people in desperate situations. As such, these companies have many bad reviews against them on sites like Yelp or Google. However, when it comes to bail bonds, the worst reviews are found on the California Department of Insurance’s (DOI) website.
The DOI monitors all bail bond companies, and when a client says that a company took advantage of them, the DOI will investigate the claim. If the claim turns out to be true, it is labeled a Justified Complaint and the company will be fined. The more Justified Complaints a bail bond company has against them, the more times they have been investigated for taking advantage of a client. Van Pool Bail Bonds in Richmond has no Justified Complaints against us, meaning we have never been investigated by the DOI.
On top of our clean record, Van Pool Bail Bonds in Richmond has been helping clients bail their loved ones out of jail for the past 30 years. We are one of the oldest companies in California, and we know exactly what we need to do to help our clients, and we never try to take advantage of them. Our competitors, however, cannot say the same thing. Many of our competitors have numerous Justified Complaints from the DOI. Some even have more complaints against them than they have years of being in business.
