Do I need to order documents in advance?

Only if you want to use original documents between 4.15pm and 8pm on a Wednesday evening, in which case you need to order before 2pm. Contact us to order by phone or email.  During the daytime Monday to Wednesday we produce documents on demand and usually there is only a short wait.
