I would've never thought about having a courier service be able to get
my birth certificate for me until the guy from TX Vital Records told me
about contacting a legal courier. I'm so glad he was sharp and that I
found Pro Courier. I spoke w/another company before I called you and
they sounded so unprofessional, not someone I would trust to go pick up
my birth certificate. I'm glad I found your company online.
firm has relied on Pro Courier for over 20 years. We trust them
implicitly with sensitive and intricate pick-ups and deliveries that
require speed and intuition. They are on time, courteous and smart
about their work. They have an understanding of our needs that goes
beyond just making deliveries. Duane and his team are an important
component of how we successfully conduct our firm?s business. Other
delivery services have asked us to give them a try but we know Pro
Courier is the best!
- Duane and Pro Courier are the most trustworthy courier
I have ever worked with. We have to obtain Birth Certificates for our
clients that are applying for overseas work visas. We have tried
several of the big name national services, we now use Pro Courier
exclusively in Austin for Texas Birth Certificates. When Duane says
he will walk your application through the same day he receives it,
it will be done. Others promised this level of service, but never
“delivered”. With Pro Courier we know it will be done as advertised.
You can't go wrong with Pro.

- I'm a legal secretary with a firm in Dallas. We started
Courier Service to handle our Austin courier needs a couple of
years ago. Duane and his crew always handle our "delicate" request in
the most professional and discreet manner. We love Pro Courier!!
- Dylan is a true professional. He has been outstanding
these deliveries out and I am grateful. I deal with so many people each
day who do not seem to take pride in their work, so it is a real treat
to run across people I have confidence in and trust. Kudos to you and
Dylan. If I could work with folks like the two of you regularly, life
would be easy.
found Pro Courier Service online when I learned that the Houston
Consulate had rejected a vital document form that I had submitted for
authentication. I had to start the entire process all over again, with
less than a month to go before my current visa ran out. Duane arranged
a courier in Dallas to get a new set of original documents, got them
authenticated in Austin, and had them overnighted to the visa agency
within 36 hours of my initial phone conversation with him...He
responded promptly and professionally to all my communications and
immediately anticipated a problem that would have caused my documents
to be rejected a second time. -- Robert M. (overseas)
