On this page Apostille Texas is doing something that no other apostille and authentication document filing services company in the world has ever dared to do.
That is to list thirteen different companies Texas apostille services prices, website URLs, and turnaround times (TAT) with screenshots from their websites as proof so you can verify and compare them head to head with us.
A factual apples to apples comparison (actually we’re a badass Texas orange) to help you make the most informed decision possible for yourself or the company that you own or work for.
All nationwide or worldwide apostille document companies that market online and state they apostille and authentication documents in all fifty U.S states use middlemen and third party companies to do their bidding for them.
This fact is the dirty little secret in this small niche industry.
Because of this fact you will see below that these international apostille companies must set their apostille and authentication document service prices accordingly based on needing middlemen and having to dramatically mark up the cost to you so they can still make a hefty profit.
Since none of these apostille and authentication document courier companies are actually based in Austin, TX, where the lone Texas Secretary of State’s office is located at.
Even Texas based apostille and authentication document service companies that aren’t based in the Austin metro area need to bid out all or most of there rush Texas apostille and authentication document work to Austin, TX local courier contractors and companies.
This is also why these apostille company’s fastest turnaround times are a turtle slow 3-21 days and why they can’t provide same business day or even next business day Texas apostille courier filing services like we can.
One of the most disturbing things unbeknownst to the general public (that’s YOU) is many of these nationwide apostille and authentication companies hire random strangers (many times off of Craigslist where we have seen their ads posted firsthand) to handle your sensitive, private, and original documents.
These national apostille companies hope and pray that the Craigslist mercenaries they hire are reliable, trustworthy, and they don’t lose or steal your one of a kind documents.
Kind of a scary thought isn’t?
Apostille Texas by comparison is actually based in beautiful Austin, TX (please DON’T move here though because we’re beyond full).
We’re located just fifteen minutes from the Texas Secretary of State’s office, where all apostille and authentication document filings for corporations, businesses and individuals in the State of Texas are done at.
Apostille Texas doesn’t hire random strangers or rogue contractors and only experienced State of Texas background checked employees handle and file your legal documents to be apostilled or authenticated at the Texas Secretary of State’s office in downtown Austin, Texas.
