Welcome to the Lafayette Process Servers LLC podcast. In today’s episode, we are going to talk about, Hiring Local Process Server Vs. Nationwide
Many law firms believe that working with a nationwide process server guarantees better quality service, but bigger doesn’t always mean better. Nationwide companies are charging a lot more, getting the job done slower, and using the same local guys that you could have called and hired yourself. When you use a nationwide process server company, you are paying them to call a local process server that they probably don’t know anything about and hire them to deliver your sensitive documents. Nationwide companies also tend to have poor communication and are less efficient in their work.
Below are six reasons to hire local process servers over nationwide process servers.
1. Lower Costs
Local process servers are usually much cheaper than nationwide companies. With a nationwide company, multiple people are involved with your case. There are extra fees to pay for. You will be charged more for express service and also for numerous attempts to serve papers. Local process servers are more straightforward to do business with than nationwide process servers. When you hire a nationwide process server, you will easily be paying double what you would pay for a local process server, and you would receive slower service.
2. Faster Service
If you use a nationwide company, your papers are first sent to the main office and then forwarded out to a local process server where the papers need to be served. When you work with a local process server, your documents are sent directly to the person serving them and can immediately go out for delivery.
3. Better Communication
Communication is direct and simple since you work directly with the individual serving your papers. You don’t have to wait for messages to pass up and down the corporate ladder before getting your response.
4. Smoother Process
Better communication and faster service make a smoother process. The more people you get involved in a case, the higher the chance something will go wrong. The last thing you want is to have the service process questioned; that could disrupt or ruin your case.
5. More Control
Having faster, more reliable communication gives you better control of your serves. Working with local process servers may mean dealing with multiple vendors, but it is worth it with better communication and more reliable, faster service.
Working with a dependable local process server means you’ll be working with a seasoned professional. They strive to ensure you receive great communication, speedy service, and zero problems. As well as someone who knows the area. Hiring local allows you to create solid longer-term business relationships that you wouldn’t be able to make with a nationwide process server company.
What Is A Reliable Way to Find A Local Process Server?
One of the best ways to find a reliable local process server is to look on Google Local. When searching for a professional process server, one thing to look for is to make sure they’re insured, and Google Local requires all of their listings to have business insurance.
Many people believe that process servers are equivalent to messengers delivering letters. However, Process servers are much more important than that. They uphold Americans’ constitutional right to due process by properly notifying them of court dates and other legal matters that need their attention. Process servers handle sensitive documents and must be considered with care. Why would you hire someone who will be hard to reach, who uses an ineffective system, and works slower than everyone else? By browsing Google Local, checking reviews, and making a phone call or two, you could have a more affordable, reliable process server than someone a nationwide process server would hire for you. Know who is handling your court documents, hire locally, and be assured that your documents will be handled with care and delivered quickly.
