At first glance, notarizing documents with your local UPS notary seems like a great idea. And for some people it is, as you only need your ID and the document(s) you need notarized. (in certain cases)
But, what separates a UPS notary and a certified signing service like Sunshine Signing?
Is a UPS Notary Really More Convenient?
For a single document, both can be convenient. Depending on traffic a trip to your local UPS might not be so bad. But, a signing service can send a notary to your location. With emerging technologies, online notarizations can be done quickly, with little to no hassle. All you need is a computer and internet access.
But, does the UPS notary have an appointment time open? Will the UPS store even have a notary in house when you need a document notarized? While they do have thousands of locations, it can still be a problem to match a time that works for you. And if you need documents notarized frequently, this can become even more of a pain.
And believe it or not, a signing service can save you time and money.
A signing service like Sunshine can have a notary at your door, or place of choice in 4 hours or less. Online notarizations can be done even more quickly. If you are looking for a notary near you, you cannot beat a certified signing service.
Witnesses and Marital States and the Challenges Associated with a UPS Notary
Some states require a witness or witnesses to the signing. Other states are marital states, where the spouse must be present for certain types of signings. And depending on the state, the notary cannot be the witness.
This is another reason a signing service is superior to a UPS notary.
You need a team with the knowledge and ability to sort all of this out for you, make sure you are on the right side of the law, and ensure everything is done the right way, the first time.
How About Professional?
In this case, you simply cannot beat a mobile notary and online notary service. Notaries are all vetted, insured and are the most professional in the industry. While the UPS store does have notaries, they are not required to become certified like the notaries that Sunshine Signing uses.
They also might be performing many tasks that are not related to notarizations, as the UPS store has more important services they provide.
To them, not you.
Notarizing documents is just an add on for them, but for a signing service like Sunshine, it is the only thing we do, and we do it better than anyone else.
What is a Mobile Notary?
A mobile notary, also known as a traveling notary, is a notary that travels to your location.
Be it your home, your job site, your local coffee shop, it really does not matter. There are mobile notaries that do this 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, which a UPS notary simply cannot match.
This is even more convenient for people who work nine to five. And documents that need to be signed by more than one party. Getting multiple people to meet at the UPS store is just not easy. A mobile notary can be at a location that is beneficial to all parties, making the signing much easier.
A mobile notary is simply a superior option.
What is an Online Notary?
This question answers this one itself. The signing is done with a certified agent over the computer with internet access. There is no going anywhere and no one that has to come to you. You can just gather around the computer and get it all done, which is an option you cannot find with a UPS notary at this time.
There is a downside to this, though. Laws differ from state to state and area to area. There are also documents like living wills and more, that must be done in person.
Signings that require multiple signers and witnesses can also complicate the process.
There are also states that require some signings be supervised by an attorney. A signing service like Sunshine has a roster of attorneys at our beck and call, who are ready to notarize your documents. Some of these also do after hours and weekend signings, so you can rest assured your document will be notarized in a timely fashion.
Expedited Document Courier Service
Yes, we will concede when you need something shipped, that is the UPS’s wheelhouse. No doubt about it. But, sometimes you need documents delivered, and we are about the only one in the industry that offers document courier services.
Sometimes, it needs to be there locally, and it needs to be there now.
Our network will deliver the documents for you, be it a walk through recording, to the courthouse or anywhere else you need it delivered.
