about us

Washington Express (WEX), a leader in D.C. area courier services, provides professional, competitively priced line-standing and seat-holding services for congressional and judicial hearings along with high-demand local events. For over 20 years, we have developed significant expertise in all details of seat-holding and line-standing services. 

service highlights

  • Our rate for linestanding is $45/hr with a 3 hour minimum.
  • We constantly check the demand for individual hearings so we can accurately suggest the proper line standing start times. 
  • We regularly survey committee websites to check for hearing re-locations and postponements so that your line standing is done at the right place and time. 
  • We will call you and suggest an earlier linestanding or seatholding start time if the demand for a particular hearing appears to exceed available seating in that room. *While we have a very high success rate, we cannot always guarantee entry/purchase for high profile events.
