There are many reasons to use a Mobile Notary. Perhaps the most important one is that the mobile notary is dedicated to the notary profession, a specialist. Of course you can go to the bank and use their notary, hoping they are up to date on current laws, have the proper insurance coverage, and have a supply of notarization forms for when the requisite notary wording is missing, etc.
Banks also tend to be very selective about what they are willing to notarize, sometimes requiring you have an account with the bank.
Many times we are called to notarize when several people must sign the same document and all of the signatures are to be notarized, as in the case of a will. It would be very difficult for a group to "walk around" trying to find a notary! It is far more practical, considering the witness's time, to have Ken Edelstein appear on schedule.
Sometimes the affiant cannot get to a notary. Obvious examples are hospital and senior citizen situations. At these times the skilled and patient professional notary can assist in the process; assuring all that the procedure is completed correctly. I have a page on my web site devoted to the mobile notary function; it contains a checklist to assist in your selection of a properly prepared notary: http://kenneth-a-edelstein.com/mobilenotary.html
It can also just be a matter of convenience, avoiding the need for a couple to venture out in bad weather, possibly with a small child; so the parents can have a document notarized. Many of my clients are professionals; the time spent "looking for" a notary can result in missed calls; broken appointments; and often cost more than my modest fee.
