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.
Tucson Mobile Notaries Availability
Availability can be an issue with traditional sources for notarization such as UPS Stores. Employees, including notaries, can be unpredictable and unavailable when you need them. If an employee is sick or out to lunch there may not be a notary filling in to replace them.
Variety of Documents and 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 have limited their notary services due to their lack of profit from the service. They are not interested in notarizing Wills, Trusts, or Power of Attorney documents. AZ Docs notarizes all three types of certificates in Arizona.

Scheduling Flexibility for Signing
Convenience is the major benefit to working with a mobile notary. With mobile notaries you can schedule a time and place to meet, a home or business is best. So you don’t have to worry if there is a notary nearby, they come to you. While there is a travel fee, the actual notarization fees are similar to traditional notaries.
Remote Online Notarization
Starting July 1, 2020 the state of Arizona will introduce remote electronic notarization. This was created as a convenience for those in need of a notary authorization. There is a technology requirement that may limit this option for some people. Please see our Press Release for more information.
