Excellent experience – So I needed to sign some papers in front of a notary. I looked on line and chose the closest place to where I lived, which happened to be the FedEx on 2nd and Harrison. I walked in and the manager told me "oh, we do not have a notary here" How the hell can you advertise a service you can't provide??? Anyways, the guy gave me directions to a place "a couple blocks away" I spent a good 30min trying to find this place and finally gave up. Went home and this time I looked at the reviews online to find the place with the best service. Everyone was raving about the ups store on Howard. So I walk over there. They let me bring my dogs in while I was doing my business, and on top of that the owner of the place (a very laid-back friendly guy named Ivan) gives me a beer!!! Not a crappy Bud or Miller either, an Import. I will be going back here for all of my shipping needs. Did I happen to mention they also make keys and have P.O. boxes there? I highly recommend this place.
Dear Customer - Thank you for the feedback....it gives us great pride to receive such kind reviews. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Terrific Passport Service At The UPS Store – I needed my Irish Passport Photos taken to meet Consulate standards, and went to four places trying to find someone to help me. Finally, after an internet review, I traveled to the UPS Store and had all the Irish criteria satisfied in one visit. Can't say thank you enough. Cost was fair and in line with services. And they gave me a coupon for my next visit. JoeD
Dear customer - new bio-metric photo standards used by most countries now require very strict adherence to proper measurements. The Irish Consulate has long recommended our location for these standards. Our camera can be programmed for almost every country's immigration, passport and ID standards. We guarantee every photo - if they are rejected for any reason (proof in writing), we will either re-take the photo or refund your money. Thank you again for your kind words!
On time delivery, Reliable – The Ups Store is very important for me. Sending packages is very doubtful these days. You don?t know whether your parcel will reach its destination or not. But it is not so with Ups store. They are very neat when it comes to service. I trust them completely. They deliver it right on time. So when it comes to courier, for me its Ups Store.
Thank you for entrusting us with all of your shipping...don't forget that The UPS Store offers Next Day, 2nd Day and 3-Day guaranteed options in addition to its well-known Ground service. Freight and moving services are also available!
Outstanding service. Why wait at the post office, fedex, or any other shipping place, when you can go HERE! – The owner/proprietor, Ivan, is very helpful. His specialty services are excellent. He can pack and ship just about anything, from fragile to huge, fast and safely, to anywhere at any speed. The packing is so much better than I can do at home. Plus, the convenience of the location is outstanding.
We know your boutique law firm trusts us with your packages - thank you also for trusting us with your litigation duplication and document services. Small successful attorney firms know that we can provide mailroom and duplication services at a fraction of in-house cost. Thanks again!
Best Passport Photos & Notary Service in San Francisco...Hands Down! – Passport photos are so easy with these guys...they have an awesome camera that makes passport photos for almost any country. They produced a photo for me and my girlfriend for our Irish passports and then resized them for Canadian Immigration purposes from the same image. The UPS Store on Howard Street was recommended to me by the Irish Consulate because they seem to be the only place downtown that can do correct sizes for foreign passports - the photos at Walgreen's and Kinkos were the wrong size for Ireland and I wasted my money at both places before finally getting the advice of the consulate. They also notarized our Irish passport applications after being rejected by two other notaries public in town - the owner of the store told me that all of the employees have notary commissions so they always have someone available. Few places in San Francisco provide this level of service...it's like the old days, so to speak!
A special thanks to the Irish Consulate of San Francisco for the referrals for our notary public and passport photo service. Please call us if you have any questions about passport visa or or immigrations photos. Our camera has settings for Latin America, Asia, EU countries and most other standards.
Very indefferent customer service. No money back policy at all. Bad quality passport photos. – Came there to get passport pictures and got bad quality photo and aske the clerk to get another one . They refused. I could not belive that waisted my money. Never will do business with them again.
You were clearly misinformed about our passport photo policies. We guarantee our passport photos for any published standard. Most countries share a new biometric standard, for which our staff is trained to handle. Disgruntled customer, please come back and let us provide you with the quaility photos and customer service you expected and deserved.
The Best in San Francisco - Hands Down – The UPS Store on Howard Street has the most customer-oriented staff I have ever encountered at a business center. All staff members have a notary commission which means they have notary services available 24 hours - if you are ever in a tight situation, these guys will rescue you. When I told them I was thirsty and tired the last time I refinaced my home loan, they offered me a beer ("is this for real or am I dreaming?" was all I could think). As far as I am concerned, there is only one place for notary services in SF and you found it!
