1 – Faster Delivery

Process servers focus on completing their jobs as efficiently as possible. Many, like our team, offer service 24/7 (where legally applicable) and often with the first attempt the same day as ordered, or at least within the first 24 hours. A sheriff or constable may take significantly longer based on their other duties for the day or week. 

2 – Higher Priority

Unlike the sheriff, process servers are often more flexible and can work around your schedule. You may be able to arrange a time that is convenient for you, while deputies often have to work specific hours. A sheriff’s office may also be closed on weekends and holidays. This flexibility allows process servers to serve your documents even if they receive them when the agency is closed or when no one is there. They can reach the target party at any time of day instead of inside specific windows when they are “clocked in” to a sheriff’s job. 

3 – Better Communication

Process servers are better at communicating. They’re more likely to share with the client and the person being served, as well as the sheriff or court. 

4 – Specialized Attention to Details

A process server’s job is to serve papers promptly, with expert attention to detail. Process servers have specialized training and experience. They are experts at serving papers in the most efficient way possible, ensuring that your case will be handled with care by professionals who know what they’re doing. 

5 – Knowledge of Law Concerning Process Serving

A process server knows what laws apply, how they apply, and all of the legal information regarding the serving process. This is much different with a process server vs. a sheriff who has to understand the laws concerning many other topics like drugs, violence, property ownership, automobiles, and more. That is a ton of information to remember compared to the niche operations of a process server. 

6 – Higher Success Rate

The success rate is an essential factor in determining whether or not you should hire a process server. The success rate of a process server is the percentage of times they can deliver your court documents successfully. A sheriff’s office isn’t as concerned with success as much as attempts. However, process servers will happily discuss their success rates because that is a leading method customers use when picking one company over another.
