Through out the trip from Florida to California, Jerry always kept in contact with me regarding my golden retriever. He even sent me a picture of him. And when the trip was shorter than they anticipated and they arrived with my dog before I did, Jerry brought Bullet to his house. Very professional.

My 2 dogs were transported from Florida to North Carolina in the summer by Jerrt. He sent me pictures and updated me every couple of hours. My dogs looked happy and appeared to be well taken care of. I would recommend Jerry to anyone who needs a pet transporter. My dogs seemed to like him too.

Needed to get a rescue dog from Michigan to California. Had never done this before and was nervous as could be. Not only did Jerry have one worried woman worrying about this dog, but in California her adopter's mom was worried as well. Jerry was getting messages and emails from both of us on a regular basis, and he always responded. Diamond arrived ahead of schedule in her new home safe and sound (even though the weather was awful for a major part of the trip). I would highly recommend this man to transport your animals.

Comment:

We adopted Buddy, a 7 year old golden retriever and Jerry brought him out to California (from Denver) for us. Last time Buddy was on a long drive he was sore for days after the trip, and Jerry was great about this and gave Buddy extra time to stretch his legs on the long drive out. Jerry made sure to send us updates morning and night so we knew where Buddy was and how he was doing. Buddy was a happy dog when he got dropped off, and we are thankful for Jerry for taking such great care of our precious cargo.

I moved into a cramped shoebox in New York City and had to ship my (very large) dog to my parent's more spacious home in North Carolina. Jerry Overlock was extremely compassionate with my dog, affordable, well prepared, highly communicative during the entire trip, and even was thoughtful enough to send camera phone snapshots of my dog during rest breaks along the way. I had no doubt that my dog was safe, comfortable, and happy during his journey. I could NOT have asked for a better experience of shipping my pet across country. And I absolutely WILL use the Overlocks' service again when I'm reunited with my big boy in the near future!

Route: From Brandon, SD to San Diego, CA
Distance: 1325 Miles
Comment:

I unfortunately hate that I have to write a bad review as I wanted this to work out. But, Jerry had guaranteed a pickup of Sugar on March 15th, but this was not this case. I rec`d a text 2 days prior to the 15th stating they won’t be picking up on time and really didnt know the eta. When I had asked when they would be able to, he told me at least a week but really didnt know. This is unacceptable, especially when I had a guarantee. I`ve since had to make different arrangements which is now costing me more $ and not to mention a huge inconvenience. Jerry was understanding that I had to do this once I told him, but I feel his lack of communication wasn`t ok. Pretty much comes down to poor time management.

They were great to my animals. It`s very nerve racking sending your animals away for an over 24 hour car ride without you. Jerry and his wife made me and my cats feel very comfortable. Giving me little text updates. The cats were dropped off to their new location in great condition and not too traumatized by the super long ride. They are great with animals, I definitely recommend them to ship animals.

Could not be happier....set this up with Jerry 28 days in advance ....put my dogs in the pet palace boarding shop in Columbus....We took off in our move to Boston.....Perfect is all I can say. 1. Dogs did not have to fly 2. Dogs were safe and took a holiday while we moved our stuff and got semi-settled. They were not underfoot when the movers were here....nor cable man...the unpacking crew...plumbers (we had a stopped up sewer as soon as we got here) 3. Would absolutely do it this way again again without a doubt. Jerry provided updates as to the dogs status as well as an en-route picture. Very nice and safe is how I would describe Jerry.

Jerry & Ryan are wonderful, thoughtful & gentle people. They picked me (Hank, a blue nose Pitbull) at the Police pound in Illinois, paid the pound fees and brought me safely back home to Roseville (Sacramento) Calif. They are a trustworthy & conscientious couple. They sent a photo of me when I was picked up & sent other texts & photos along the way home. It took 6 days for the journey, since they made a couple of stops along the way. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride & my mom & I highly recommend their service for the movement of any precious cargo. Thanks to both. Your new pal, Hank!

This was the first time I had ever used citizen shipper, and I am so glad I was able to find Jerry Overlook & his wife. They transported my cat from Tucson, AZ to Charleston, SC, and were extremely considerate every step of the way. Because of the long distance they have to travel, we did need to be flexible on our pick-up and drop-off times, but having driven cross-country several times myself, I can understand that. They sent me pictures & emails updating me about Spooky"s progress. He arrived safe and happy, and much calmer than when I"ve flown with him. All in all, a perfect experience. Thank you so much, Mr and Mrs Overlook!

Thank you Jerry and Ryan for a job well done. I foster beagles and deal with pet transfers all the time. Jerry and and his wife picked up Mason a beagle I was fostering from Illinois and delivered him to Arizona. They kept me updated the whole trip on where they were at and how Mason was doing.

Jerry and his wife brought my dogs from my parents house in Washington State to my hew home in Kentucky. I received texts and pictures every day of the trip. They loved and cared for my dogs as if they were their own. I was terrified of putting them on a plane and was hesitant sending them with people I didn't know in fear I'd never see them again, but these are two wonderful and trust worthy people that I would recommend to anyone.

Achievements:

100 Shipments Completed 10 Pet Shipments Completed Background Screening Completed CitizenShipper Certified Driver 50,000 Miles Completed

Drivers who join CitizenShipper are screened for a variety of criminal offenses and driving incidents. We utilize a reputable leader in screening called Single Source Services to perform our criminal background screening which includes national, county level and sex offender databases. The background screening we utilize is called the 'Discovery National'.

What we look for with the background screening:

  • checkNo felonies in the past five years
  • checkNo felonies in the last ten years involving theft, assault or violent crime
  • checkNo DUI within the last five years
  • checkNo patterns of misdemeanors in the past ten years relating to DUI's, theft, assault, or violent crimes.
  • checkNo outstanding warrants for arrest
  • checkDoes not show up in national sex offender registry

The background screening includes a residence trace and returns all names and addresses associated with a social security number, in addition to checking the alias(es) returned through the database and the sex offender data.

Based on the subject's name(s) and date of birth the data returned from the background screening are records from State Departments of Correction, State Record Repositories, County Courts, and sexual predator/violent offenders' databases from all 50 states, DC, Guam, and Puerto Rico. Although this search has great value, and the volumes and sources of data are increasing almost every day, it is not an FCRA compliant service. The data is not updated after being entered into the database and therefore records could be expunged, sealed, or verdicts could have been appealed.

While we believe that the Discovery National is a good foundational screening tool, it is not an exhaustive statewide search of records, and as such we cannot guarantee 100% effectiveness in screening candidates.
