Permit Express is a family run business located in Northern Virginia. With a background in the construction industry we discovered two main things that led to the start of our permit processing business.
1- Construction professionals hate pulling permits. They would rather be doing almost anything other than spending their valuable time in line at the planning counter waiting to process a building permit – they would rather be spending that time generating more profit for their company.
2- We’re actually pretty good at it. We have a thorough, patient approach with an eye for detail that lends itself to the permitting process and helps prevent time consuming errors.

And so Permit Express was born with an emphasis on delivering exceptional customer service and value to the construction industry.  At Permit Express our mission is to be the most cost effective, flexible, and reliable permit processing service in the Washington, DC metro area.  In so doing we create good quality jobs for good quality people who are committed to providing outstanding customer service reliably and in a professional manner.  We strive to develop and maintain a reputation for providing exceptional value for the permit expediting services we deliver and exceeding the expectations of our clients in the construction industry.
