Introducing the Mobile Notary Annual Pass for Los Angeles Businesses

Introducing the Mobile Notary Annual Pass for businesses in Los Angeles.  We have never done this before, and as far as I know, this is a first!

For the introductory price of $300, businesses can pay us to visit their locations on any business day (holidays are excluded), for a call fee of $30 per visit.   With each call, your business will receive up to 5 notarizations (included in this price).  This offer can be used once a week (excluding holidays).  Notary visits must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.

If your business needs Mobile Notary Services often, this Annual Pass can save you.

We normally charge a $40 travel fee, plus $10 per notarized signature.  We earn a minimum of $50 on such trips.  With the Annual Pass, you will receive up to a $90 value per trip, for each scheduled trip.  You have about 50 days to schedule us. Additional notarized signatures (over 5) will be charged $10 per notarized signature.

Here is how our regular pricing compares to the Annual Pass pricing (assuming 5 included notarizations with the Annual Pass):

Regular Pricing                    Annual Pass

Visits #6     $540                                $480

# 7            $630                                 $510

# 8            $720                                $540

#9            $810                                 $570

#20          $1,800                              $900

#30          $2700                               $1200

This Mobile Notary Annual Pass can pay for itself after about 5 visits (especially if you have a lot of signatures that need to be notarized). By visit number 20, you are already saving up to  $900.     By visit number 30, you are paying $1,200 and receiving up to $2,700 in Notary Services.   Remember, you can schedule us up to 50 days in the year. Even if you need Notary service  only once a week, this service can save you a bundle!

Due to the commitment to service that we have on this Annual Pass, we currently will only sell one of these Annual Passes to clients, and to a limited area only. We will sell this product to exactly 2 businesses, selected from interested parties in Downtown Los Angeles, Culver City, Hancock Park, or Beverly Hills.

How We Save You Time and Money on Getting Apostilles

California Apostilles

California Apostilles

Why Our Apostille Service is Your Best Choice

Hollywood Notary Dot Net has been accepting documents from local, interstate and international clients since 2007. Companies rely on our experience and expertise in handling their critical documents. We exercise great care and caution in handling your documents, and work to assure time-definite delivery of your processed Apostilles.  In the long run, you will find that our service saves you time and money in getting your California Apostilles,  or U.S. Federal Apostilles, because we know what we are doing, and we do it right the first time!

Why To Use Our Service, and Not Mail It In To The Departments of State

When getting Apostilles from either the California Secretary of State or the United States Department of State, many people take it upon themselves to either send their documents to the appropriate State department.  What they don’t realize is the possible tremendous turnaround times that either the California Secretary of State’s office or the U.S. Department of State’s office will take in processing the documents.  Despite what it may say online, we know from experience that it can take up to 3 weeks to receive your documents back from the State of California, and up to a month to receive them back from the U.S. Department of State.

The Wrong Documents

Another reason to use our California Apostille Service or Federal Apostille Service is that often people will deliver documents to these Department of State offices themselves, with incorrect paperwork.

    Each and every day, at least 100 or more people come to the California Secretary of State’s office in Los Angeles with documents that cannot be processed for Apostilles or Certifications, for the following reasons:

  • Vital Records which bear signatures that cannot be authenticated by the Secretary of State.
  • paperwork which requires notarization from Notary Public has not been notarized.
  • paperwork has not been properly notarized by a Notary Public.
  • other reasons

Every day people drive from far away with their important documents (from places like San Diego, Santa Ana, Oxnard, Bakersfield, Santa Barbara, Ridgecrest, Riverside and San Bernardino), or fly in from other states with their documents, in an urgent effort to submit their documents to the Secretary of State in Los Angeles. Many of these people are turned away when they find out that their documents are unable to receive authentication from the Secretary of State, and therefore that they have wasted their money and time.

We Can Help You

For several years now, Hollywood Notary Dot Net in Los Angeles has served thousands of clients in obtaining Apostilles and Authentications from the California Secretary of State and the U.S. Department of State. We provide individualized customer care- our service to our clients is important to us, our clients themselves are important to us, and their documents are important to us. We provide 1-Day Apostille processing and Fed Ex overnight shipping, to provide you with an excellent customer experience. Using our service drastically reduces the risk of your documents being delayed by rejection at the Secretary of State!

Document Review

Before placing your order with us and sending your documents, we review your documents and make sure that they will be accepted at the respective Departments of State. This ensures a happy client experience, and brings us return customers!   This Document Review process is free, with no obligation to use our service, and we quote you after the review.

Many types of documents are notarized by Notaries Public every day!  These documents come from many sources- lenders, escrow companies, the California Department of Motor Vehicles,  banks and other financial institutions, city government agencies, law firms, private citizens, agencies of the state government, federal government agencies, foreign agencies and law firms,  local private companies, and other places.
