UPS notary service better alternative - mobile notary in NY

Did you know that using a mobile notary service is actually the better alternative to using a UPS notary?

It’s true! You could potentially waste your time and money if you use a notary at the local UPS store near you.

There are a number of reasons why this is the case, and we’ll share some of them with you here. But first, let’s talk about what can go wrong with a UPS notarization.

Major Problems With a UPS notary

Most New Yorkers only have 1 or 2 UPS stores nearby – often requiring miles of travel to get there. Let us help you with the possible pitfalls of using the United Postal Service notary public so you don’t waste your time, gas, and energy.

UPS does NOT notarize all documents

Some complex but vital documents will get denied for notarization at UPS. This can include power of attorney, I-9 employment verification, and certain mortgage papers. Your valuable document is guaranteed to be accepted by a full-time notary company like ours.

You risk being denied for:

  • Wills
  • Power of Attorney
  • Large loan signing (such as a NY Cema refinance)

Limited UPS Store notary availability

Not every UPS location has notaries on staff. If one is available, they’re often only free for short windows during business hours. This can make it difficult or impossible to get your documents notarized if UPS timings are not reliable.

Bad appointment process

UPS uses a complicated and often error-prone online appointment system for all several thousand locations. This system doesn’t consider the mountain of work employees already have on their hands and could cause you to wait long past your set appointment time.

UPS Notary Cost

I’m guessing the top question on your mind right now is how much does UPS charge?

The UPS store notary fees vary by location and can be anywhere between $2-$25 in New York and other states. You can expect to be charged for every signature but there is no way to know exactly how much UPS will charge until your appointment.

This lack of transparency led to UPS being sued for overcharging customers for notary services.
