Nearest Notary to Me

What is the easiest way to find the nearest notary?

The answer is simpler than you may think.  You see, the nearest notary to you is always going to be the notary that will come to you, also known as a mobile notary.  They take the hassle out of arranging notary services for yourself or your business.

The Old Way to Locate a Notary

People used to go to great lengths to get documents notarized.  In fact, a friend who was a notary was a boon to most people.  You might go to the local bank, or search the yellow pages for the nearest notary to you.

This system worked great, except for the actual getting the documents notarized part.  You quickly found out how hard it is to get everyone together at the same time and same place, and actually have a notary that is open at that time.  You see, there are several types of business that offer notary services, but they often have long lunch breaks and close early.  So, having everyone take off from work early wouldn’t even work a lot of the time.

So, even though finding the nearest notary was pretty cheap, it got expensive quickly when you realized that time is money.  And don’t forget the hassle of all the planning between the parties.

The Best Way to Locate the Nearest Notary

The nearest notary to you is the one that will come to you, period.

With mobile notaries, you are no longer tied to the 9-5.  Or, more like the 9 to noon, then 1:30 to 3pm many notaries work.  A mobile notary works around your schedule, offering their services when it is most convenient to you.  They even travel to your business, your home, or just about anywhere else you and your client or adjoining party might be when you need the document(s) notarized.

So, then how do I find a mobile notary near me?

The easiest way to find a mobile notary is to use a mobile notary service.  They have a database of notaries willing to come to you.  They can quickly find you a mobile notary, even on a tight schedule.  The vast array of professionals at their fingertips makes it easy to locate the right notary for you.

Then all you have to do is focus on your business, feeling secure that the nearest notary is coming to you.

Why You Need a National Signing Service

When faced with the choice of using a single notary, versus using a national signing service, there are several things a business needs to consider.  Not least of which are staffing/availability of your notary.

One must also consider the culture of their company and if an on staff notary helps them achieve their mission statement.  And on top of it all, a business must always think and plan about the future, the prospect of growth, and how that will affect company operations.

When You Need a National Signing Service

Every business that needs documents signings has to make a choice on how to get the job done.  Here are a few key questions we have found companies need to ask when making the decision on getting a national signing service.

Does an on staff notary help the company reach its goals, without detracting from its core focus?

Especially for smaller companies, hiring is a big decision.  There are training, taxes, the bottom line, and the journey to find someone who is right for your team.  Then there is the fact they must be certified in every state you do business, or plan to do business.

If you only do a few signings in a local area, it might be the right decision for you.  But, you then have to weigh the cost/benefits to have them on your staff.

You can find an individual notary for your services, but what do you do when they aren’t available?  And is it a good use of company time to be tracking down notaries all the time?

Is your company growing or primed for growth?

Growing a business is hard work.  It takes supreme effort across a range of company goals to achieve.

And it is a proud moment when you do it.

As your company grows, your needs for notary services grows with it.  You can no longer rely on an individual notary, so a national signing service becomes your best option.

Why?  Because you need to focus on the three things that makes your company tick!  And I bet hunting down notaries is not on that list.  So you go out and find someone who specializes in that, so you can focus on your core business and increased growth.

Are you looking to expand your hours?

In recent years, this has spread quickly in real estate, but also for signings involving individuals with 9-5 jobs.  In real estate, investors strike fast and they do the deals when they can be done.  This is often outside the range of normal business hours.

A national signing service have networks of notaries that are available after conventional hours.  So, if one is not available, they have twenty more that are.  So you never get stuck out of town, at the table, with no way to close.

In business, every minute means money.

Where Can I Find a Notary?

Needless to say, you aren’t the first person to come to this page and ask “where can I find a Notary?”.

We say, in mother Russia, notary finds you.

That is quite tongue in cheek, but the fast paced business environment today often requires a notary come to you, and not the other way around.  Business is no longer tied to the old nine to five, and important signings can take place almost at any time.  Antiquated are the days when all parties to a document trudged their way to notary office, because nowadays no one has the time, and let’s face it, the notary in the office is probably out to lunch or closed.  It is just so much more convenient to have the notary come to your site so you can go about your business uninterrupted.

Enter the Signing Service

A signing service is a network of mobile notaries that will come to wherever you do business to supervise and notarize the document process.  They use their vast resources to find the notary that is right for you, and that can meet you at your location when you need them.  A good signing service has already vetted thousands of notaries, performed background checks and made sure they are certified to do what they do.  So you can rest assured you have a qualified professional doing the job.

Talk about saving your business time, eh?

We Can Find a Notary for Individuals, Too

So, here is a recent story of mine, and the trials and tribulations I had to go through to find a notary I could actually use.  I had a tree on my property line I wanted to cut, but part of it was on my neighbor’s yard, so we needed to sign an Indemnity agreement.  We came to terms and had the docs drawn up.

But, we could not find a notary we could both see at the same time.

See, most of us have jobs, and it is hard to get everyone to the notary’s office during those hours.  So, the best solution was to get a mobile notary, from a reputable signing service.  That notary met us at our houses in the evening, so we could both go on with our lives, and I could cut down that garish tree.

So Where Can I Find a Notary?

As it turns out, you are at the exactly right place to find a notary, whenever you need one.  Sunshine Signing is a nationwide signing service that has a vast database of tens of thousands of mobile notaries.  We are open for business 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.  We operate in big cities and rural areas, and most often can have a notary at your location in less than four hours.

Traveling Notary – What are They

A traveling notary is more commonly known as a mobile notary.  They are notaries that travel from location to location to perform document signings.  A traveling notary will go to:

  • your place of business
  • a home or residence
  • the coffee shop around the corner
  • or anywhere else you need documents notarized.

A notary public is defined as a public officer who attests or certifies writings (as a deed) to make them authentic and takes affidavits, depositions, and protests of negotiable paper —called also notary”.

At Your Beck and Call

A traveling notary can be found just about any hour of the day and any day of the week.  Many of them specialize in after hours closings and rush document signings.  And they are located all over the country.

While commonly used for real estate transactions, a traveling notary can be used for just about any document that requires notarization. (In some states, for some documents, a lawyer is required.  But, don’t worry, there are traveling lawyers, too.)

In many cases you can find a traveling notary in a matter of hours … if … you use a service that gets you access to a network of traveling notaries.

A Signing Service has Access to Your Traveling Notary

A signing service is like a matchmaker between you and a notary.  For example, at Sunshine Signing Connection we have a network of tens of thousands of notaries across all 50 states.  We will connect you with a notary in a matter of minutes.

Finding a Notary Near Me

You are here because you are wondering where to find a notary near me.  Whether you are purchasing a house, updating a deed, creating or updating power of attorney, or executing just about any type of legal document, you need a notary to certify these documents. If you run a business you might need notary services frequently, but even the average person needs a notary on occasion, whether it be to:

  • Create or update a will or living trust
  • Execute a document with a neighbor for work to be done on the property line.
  • Notarize a formal IOU for a personal loan.

Challenges of Finding a Notary Near Me

If you are in a decent sized city, finding a notary in your area is usually pretty simple. However, finding a time that they are open, and in which you can get all parties to the notary’s office can be quite challenging.

That is where a signing service comes in.

We have a database of thousands of certified notaries across the United States. Big cities or rural areas, it does not matter. These notaries are great in that they come to you, and take all of the hassle out of getting your document(s) notarized.

Now you can rest assured next time you ask yourself “Where do I find a notary near me?”

What are the Rules in My State for a Notary

Some states simply require a notary to be present when a document is signed. For some types of documents, in some states, an attorney is required to be present. Then there are states that require a witness to the document(s), for certain notarized documents.

It can get confusing quickly, and a document that is not notarized correctly is not a valid document.

But, when you use a signing service that has been doing business in each of these states for over a decade, you are bringing on the expertise that comes along with it, to ensure your documents have all of their i’s dotted and t’s crossed.

We also stand by our work. 100%.

Next time you want to search for a notary near me, consider instead using a signing service, like us, to take care of the process for you. We remove the hassle out of the process, and better yet, we bring a certified notary to your office, meeting place, or door.
