BASU Your Signing Partner


On Call Notary Service was established in 1994 in Marin County to provide convenient mobile notary services at an affordable price. Based on the demanding work and family schedules of many people living in the Bay Area of Northern California and the support of local Title & Mortgage Companies, On Call Notary Service expanded their operations by establishing a loan document accommodation signing service (Bay Area Sign-Ups) in 1996. In 1999, Bay Area Sign-Ups became a statewide loan document signing company. Currently, Bay Area Sign-Ups services all of California & Nevada along with parts of Arizona.

In 2008, Bay Area Sign-Ups the statewide accommodation signing service went through a brand change to become: BASU Your Signing Partner. This branding change coincided with a new domain name for BASU’s website:


BASU operates 24 hours/7 days a week from a central office located in Long Beach, CA.
