How Much Does It Cost?

If you travel to me and meet me at a place of my choosing (general notary public services), I charge $10.00 per Notarized document on Monday through Friday.

On Saturday, each document is $15.00 .

(I currently do not offer Sunday service, except in an emergency situation.)

My notary fees are due in cash at the time of the signing.

If you need me to travel to you (mobile notary services), I charge a trip fee that is $25 anywhere in Shelby County or $50 anywhere in Tipton or Fayette County. (Those are the only counties I cover at this point.)  

The trip fee is in addition to the notary fee, so if you have one document and you have me travel to you during the week, that would be $35 total. On Saturday, it would be $40. Each additional document means another notary fee (but only one trip fee is charged, no matter how many documents are notarized.)

As with my notary fee, the trip fee is due in cash when I arrive.

I may also charge a waiting fee if I’m waiting there for more than 15 minutes for the signer(s) or witness(es) to be available with acceptable forms of i.d. We can discuss whether that applies in your situation and how much it is when you call or text to make your appointment. 

If you have many documents to be notarized, please note that I do offer a package deal that includes a discount for more than 10 documents notarized at the same time. Ask about that if you have more than 10 documents to be notarized. 

For Notary Signing Agent, courier, or other services, my fee will be set when you call with the assignment, as it depends upon the scope of work.

Please see What About I-9 Forms? for information about the cost of completing those forms.

    • Tim Gatewood says:

      Cleve, a Bill of Sale is a Bill of Sale. Unless what you’re selling is obviously something you couldn’t own (the Statue of Liberty, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Grand Canyon, and such) or something it would be illegal for you to own (a tank, a nuke, illegal drugs), what you’re selling is not my concern. So, yes, if your Bill of Sale for a gun purchase needs to be notarized, I can notarize it.

      Depending on your circumstances, I may need to check to see if there are any new laws or regulations about your gun sale. Otherwise, I’d be happy to help you. Please contact me about the particulars on your transaction for a more definite answer and to make an appointment.
