Why Use a Mobile Notary?
Although notaries can be found at UPS Stores and Financial Institutions, there are several advantages to using a mobile notary. First, there is no guarantee that a notary is available at a bank or UPS store. Second, they are not authorized to notarize all documents. In fact, they can be very limited. And finally, they are not always conveniently located. A Tucson mobile notary will come to you on your schedule and have the ability to notarize a range of documents and types.
Mobile Notary Availability
Availability can be an issue with traditional sources for notarization such as UPS Stores. Employees can be unpredictable and timing is everything. If an employee is sick or out to lunch there may not be anyone filling in to replace them.
Variety of Notarization Types
Limitation of services is another issue, common in banks. They are happy to notarize a vehicle title transfer at ‘no cost to members’. However, they are not interested in notarizing Wills, Trusts, or Power of Attorney documents. AZ Docs notarizes all three types of certificates in Arizona.
