How often in our busy lives do we wait until the last minute even for the most important things? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve received a phone call and the person needs their Power of Attorney, Advance Health Care Directive, Medical Power of Attorney, Special or Limited Power of Attorney, Deed of Trust, or Permission to Travel for a Minor notarized today!
I often get asked can you come right now? More often than not, the person has known that they needed to take care of this very important Power of Attorney, Advance Health Care Directive or Medical Power of Attorney weeks or even months before.
Sunday night I received a call from a gentleman inquiring about my mobile notary services. He had a form from work that needed to be notarized. He said he had it for months but needed it notarized by 7 AM tomorrow. When I took the call I paused the movie I was watching at home with friends and excused myself. The time was 7:45 PM. Before he communicated that he needed the notary that night, I gave him a quote for mobile notary services based on traveling to the San Fernando Valley. I explained that I’d be traveling from Simi Valley and the mobile notary fee would reflect that—not to mention I’d be notarizing after 9 PM. He seemed surprised that making a come-right-now appointment on a Sunday evening for notarization might cost a little more than if I were already in the area. I then offered to provide mobile notary service first thing in the morning. I always try to accommodate my clients schedules.
Though I can’t please everyone all the time, I still try! I pride myself on good service and wanting to satisfy all my mobile notary clients, and realize that often in our busy society we expect things to be done right now! And it doesn’t matter that we’ve put it off to the last minute. We except the person providing service to come now!
I understand that we all have last minute emergencies in life. So I’ll do everything possible to accommodate you and try not to be so hard on myself when I can’t meet someone’s urgent notary requirements.
The moral of the story? Plan ahead if you can but call me, Andrea, for your last minute mobile notary when you can’t. I’ll be there including nights and weekends—even 9:00 PM on a Sunday night! Or 7 AM Monday morning!!
