Background Investigations Overview

A “background investigation” means something different to everyone. For example, a certain piece of background information considered to be of importance to one person may be valueless to another. To assist clients in selecting the proper background investigation we have several pre-packaged background reports that are commonly requested.

Any of these pre-packaged background reports can be ordered online. If you don’t see what you are looking for, please contact us. Once we hear the situation, we can quickly give you options ranging from a quick check to a complex background package.

We have had many years to refine background research methods and develop local, state, and federal sources with access to information not easily attainable. Each background is processed by a licensed and experienced background research investigator. Our sources of information are deep and, while it has its place, we do not rely automated “Internet Checks.” These reports generally contain inaccurate and incomplete data from unreliable databases recycling lesser quality data. We also do not hide behind disclaimers; we provide reliable and accurate reports which we stand behind. Our reports contain real findings that can be counted on to make real decisions instead of generating more questions.
