This entire team was incredible! Drove my cat from my parents in TX to my in NYC. Daily check-ins, photos, and communication throughout the entire process. Even before the pick-up, they answered every question and communicated everything I needed to make her trip more comfortable. At drop-off the team arrived and reassured me how well my cat did during the trip and that they were going to miss her. I can tell this team truly loves what they do and I am so grateful for their service! Thank you!!!

Rick took perfect care of my fur baby during our transition from NW Indiana to Dallas, TX. He made sure she was comfortable in the ride with a clean kennel, water, and food, with stops along the journey to let her walk and use the bathroom as well as daily texts and pictures to me to assure me that all was going well in the journey. She arrived to our new home in great care and I’m ever so thankful for Ricks care to our furry family member. I highly recommend Matta Pet Transport for your furry transporting needs.

We were scared about using a transporter to help us bring our old dog back home. We did not know if we could trust such a service or how our dog would react, etc. We started communicating with Rick from Matta Pet Transport, and no matter how untrusting we were, or how absurd our questions might have been, Rick was patient and understanding with us and our concerns. We hired Matta Pet Transport and hoped for the best. Rick stayed in contact with us and when we met him in person, we felt silly for even giving him a hard time in the first place. He was professional and kind, and the way he greeted our dog was phenomenal. Our dog trusted him right away. Rick really took the time to make sure we were comfortable with him and that our dog was comfortable with him as well. Rick gave us continual updates, texted us pictures, and followed our instructions for our dog’s care. When our dog arrived home, Rick was sure to send us pictures of the happy reunion and thank us for allowing him to be a part of our dog’s journey. We would never hesitate for a moment to hire Matta Pet Transport again. We highly recommend Rick and his team to take care of your pet! Ours was a great experience and we believe yours will be too!

Rick was amazing with transporting our new puppy from Tennessee to Connecticut! He was able to pick her up a day early and and he got her to us in about 36 hours. We got to follow his updates the whole way which was really fun. He took a picture of her as soon as he got her and he also called me to update me. He stayed in contact the whole time and He gave me plenty of info so I knew my baby girl was safe and in good hands. He was so incredibly kind when he dropped her off with us (much kinder than I would be if I had been doing so much driving) and our puppy was healthy,happy,and appeared well taken care of! That’s the most important part. In the future I’ll only use Rick and his team for transporting my fur babies, feels much better than putting them as cargo on an airplane. Thanks For everything Rick!

Citizenshipper has some questionable businesses offering their services. I was nervous as I had one bad experience with the website. I did research and took a chance on MPTransport. I am glad I gave Rick and his team a shot because they went above and beyond our expectations. From our initial call to our dog's delivery in PA, Rick was nothing but professional. He worked with both my wife and I throughout the trip and provided updates daily on how our sweet dog was doing. He was able to accomodate our last minute trip and deliver our dog 1,200+ miles away in just 2.5 short days. I couldn't recommend this outfit more. They are amazing people and take pride in what they do. Not to mention, he offered one of the fairest prices on the site. Thank you Rick and I will definitely use your services again if ever needed.

Rick was fantastic, if I could leave more stars I would. Pickup from the breeder was slightly complicated there was only a small window during the weekday as he left for work. Rick went above and beyond to make sure he got her in that small timeframe window. He would update us on how Luna is doing and where they are. We got Luna ahead of schedule which was a wonderful surprise. He is super friendly! I highly recommend him!

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.
