Congressional Line Standing

Apple Courier & Washington Express provide professional, competitively priced line standing and seat holding services for congressional and judicial hearings. If you need to attend a congressional or judicial hearing but don't have time to stand in line yourself, give us a call.

Apple & Washington Express have provided line-standing and seat-holding services for over 20 years, and have developed significant expertise in all of the complex details of seat holding and linestanding for congressional and judicial hearings. Our rate for line standing is $40.00 per hour.

The Apple & Washington Express Advantage:

  • Our professional line-standing team specializes in monitoring the hearing schedules, and also keep an eye on the demand for particular hearings.
  • We regularly survey the commitee websites to check for any hearing relocations and/or postponements.
  • We constantly check the demand for individual hearings so we can accurately suggest the proper line-standing starting time.
