Free Illinois Courier Service
If you’re registering an out-of-state business or filing an amendment for anything other than a domestic name change, you’ll have to physically show up at the Secretary of State Office to expedite. The problem is that’s not always convenient. We solve this problem by hand delivering expedited paperwork for our clients via courier.
We offer a FREE Illinois courier service to clients who used our business formation service and currently use our registered agent service. If a client only hires us for Illinois registered agent services then our courier service is $35 per filing (plus the state’s filing fees).
Why Illinois Courier Service is Necessary
Illinois courier service isn’t just for fun. Many filings in Illinois take a month to process unless filed in person.
- You’re Out of State. If you are registering an out-of-state business, you are probably not here, in Illinois. Since most businesses don’t want to wait a month for their paperwork to go through, they end up hiring a courier service to hand deliver their paper work to the Secretary of State. But one of the many perks of being an Illinois Registered Agent client is that we’ll perform this task for you, for free.
- You Have a Time-Sensitive Amendment. Usually an amendment of any kind is going to be time sensitive. If you file by mail, the Illinois Secretary of State can often take a month or more to process. Hire us and we’ll do it for you same day. (The cut off for same day delivery is 2:00 CST.)

How to Order Our Illinois Courier Service
One of the great benefits of using our business formation service is that you will have FREE courier service as long as you remain a registered agent client. Our foreign registration and amendment filing services are just $100 plus state filing and expedite fees.
If you’ve only signed up for our registered agent service , you can still use our courier service for just $35 per filing (plus state fees). We will deliver the documents you provide directly to the Secretary of State office. Unlike our formation service, the do-it-yourself approach doesn’t guarantee it will be done correctly. When you use our formation service, we guarantee your business entity will be filed correctly, plus you’ll have free courier service for as long as you stay with our registered agent service.
