Contract Name: Medium dog from St. Louis

Date: Mar 25, 2020
Route: From St. Louis, MO to Fort Myers, FL
Distance: 1127 Miles

Simon did a great job! He transported our dog from St. Louis to Florida! He was so easy to communicate with and made sure Murphy had everything needed to be comfortable. He kept us informed. He brought his daughter with him which was so nice! I knew he was in good hands. He even stole shotgun from her and they let him have the front seat. I would highly recommend him and would be happy to answer any questions as a reference. Our dog has been part of our family for 11 years and we have never done anything like this before. We were nervous but I felt very comfortable with Simon and I am so happy to have Murphy here with us now while we are stuck out of town due to the coronavirus (we are afraid to travel home). We are all together now! Thank you Simon and Sandra!

Contract Name: Shipment from Springfield, MO to Los Angeles, CA

Date: Mar 23, 2020
Route: From Springfield, MO to Los Angeles, CA
Distance: 1614 Miles

Simon was amazing to work with through the shipment of our foster dog Obi. Obi’s parents live in Japan, and we were working on getting a pet shipper to get him to LAX. With international travel, plans change frequently and Simon was very accommodating to the change of dates for Obi’s shipment. Simon even took the time to measure out every detail of his car to make sure Obi’s crate would fit and he would have room to travel. Simon has excellent communication skills and kept up with me on every step in the process. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus, we had to cancel Obi’s shipment. Simon was very sincere in his apology that Obi could not travel to Japan to be with his parents, and was not vulgar in the fact that he would no longer be needing him. I have Simon’s information and will definitely be recommending him to friends and family. Once These travel restrictions are up, Simon will be the person I chose to get my dog safely to LA. Thank you so much for your understanding thru this process, Simon. It is very much appreciated.

Contract Name: Shipment from Buffalo, MO to Greenfield, IN

Date: Mar 21, 2020
Route: From Buffalo, MO to Greenfield, IN
Distance: 468 Miles

Simon was fantastic! He delivered our new puppy, Rosie, to my family and took great care of her along the way. He made sure to ask me before picking her up how I would like her to be transported (I chose to have her loose in the car, since that's how she would travel with us) and when they arrived Rosie was fast asleep in the backseat with his daughter. The breeder didn't provide a collar or leash, and Simon thought to stop ahead and pick those up so he could safely take her out for potty breaks. They even stopped to give her a quick bath after she got a little car sick! Simon was very responsive and transparent throughout this process which was very reassuring. He was also very accommodating--his schedule allowed him to complete the job earlier than I had listed, and we were very happy to have Rosie home a day sooner than expected! Due to the long drive and time change, it was after 1am when they arrived, but he called ahead to make sure that was alright and even offered to stay somewhere overnight if the late hour wasn't convenient for us. I could not be more happy with my experience with Simon; if you want your dog transported as though they were driving with you, Simon is the right choice.

5 Shipments Completed Background Screening Completed CitizenShipper Certified Driver

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.
