Line Standing and Seat Holding Services

Anyone can get into public congressional and judicial hearings. All you need to do is stand in line before the hearing starts. Or you can use a courier service.

The cost per line-stander is $24, plus $36.00 per hour. For services that begin before 8am, the cost is $100.00, plus $48.00 per hour. If a line-stand begins before 8am and ends after 8am, the waiting time charge will be reduced to the lower rate, starting at 8am. The minimum charge for a line-stander is $60.00.

There is no charge for cancellations received 16 or more hours in advance. Any cancellations must be confirmed by Best Messenger or the assigned courier - otherwise, the minimum charge may be applied.

We monitor the supply of and demand for seats at every hearing, based on variables such as the size of the room, the interest in the hearing, and number of witnesses taking up seats. We watch as other line-standers begin to line up, for your security.

Using a courier is very easy, even the first time. No account setup is required, and you can pay with your credit card.
