Many bail bondsmen, particularly in Baltimore City, will advertise to their clients that they are the quickest bail bonds posters in town. Almost all of them are lying to your face. It is important to understand that there are many factors that may come into play which slow down the process.
To understand what we mean you have to take into consideration the "underground-nature" of this business. It is quite possible, that when you are dealing with a Baltimore City Bail Bondsman you are dealing with someone who is not even licensed to post bail bonds in Maryland. As a client considering a bail bonds company for hire ask to see their bail bonds license.
When you have paid a bail bondsman to post your bail, ask them if a bail agent from their respective company will be taking care of the bond. The reason that we are informing you of this is so you can realize that once a bail bondsman lures you in under the illusion of being the "Quickest Maryland Bail Bondsman" they have no intention of posting the bond themselves. Rather, they are calling the bail in to a separate office that then has to call the bail into a licensed bail agent who has no affiliation with the company you paid the bond with.
You might now be asking, what's wrong with this? Well simply the bail agent called to post your bail does not care if your bail gets posted right away or 6 hours from the time he gets the call. He might not even answer the phone call from the secretary calling the bail into him. The bail agent might find it more convenient to grab a coffee first, or say hi and chat to a girlfriend, or find a delectable chicken box off Monument Street to snack on. This simple fact could delay your friend or loved one from getting released for several hours.
When using Big Boyz Bail Bonds to post bail you can be assured that you are always dealing with a licensed bail agent and a contracted employee of this company will always personally handle your bail. We do not call the bail into another party to wait for them to post the bail. If you want to see for yourself and follow our agent to the respective location to post the bail we'd be more than happy to show you. And when we have a bail for Baltimore County and it's after the 8:00pm cut-off time we still post the bail and drop the release the following morning by 8:00am when the jail re-opens. We do not wait for a random bail agent to wake up from his slumber to waltz into the Towson Commissioners at whatever time he pleases.
