What Our Clients Are Saying

Service was responsive, fast and affordable. I live in Vancouver and some places charge 4x more than idocs did. My biggest reservation was sending original documents across the country but I got them back safe and in good condition.

The service was excellent. I received prompt feedback to my questions! I will recommend the service to any friends or colleagues who might need this service in the future.

Sumeet Bhatti

Thank you for the update and for the exceptional service. I am glad we selected your company to assist us with our document legalization for overseas work. If we need further documents legalized we will definitely contact you again and will recommend you to others who may need similar service provisions in the future.
