Comment:

I needed my two Frenches transported last minute due to a change in work schedule. Benton responded quick, and made it happen he transported two of my babies from Miami to NY. He was very attentive, sent me pictures of my fur babies walking every couple hours. He kept a strict timed schedule and was surprisingly able to deliver my babies the next day! When there was traffic delays he kept me informed and stayed on the phone with me once he got on my parents street until my babies were safely in my mothers hand just to make sure that he was giving them to the right person. He took away all of my anxiety and was awesome. I didn’t have a good experience the first time transporting my babies a couple of years ago and have been sketchy since then, but he made it so much better. I would highly recommend not looking any further and booking Benton. I will definitely use him when it’s time for my boys to come home. Thank you so Benton! You are a Life Saver!

Steve and his wife Lisa were AMAZING! Our Bernedoodle puppy arrived safe and sound from TN to NYC last night thanks to them. We were nervous about finding a responsible and trustworthy driver with our new puppy, but they had such great reviews and the reviews are spot on! Steve was so helpful, responsive and professional. Very communicative and organized before and during the transport. He provided updates with location and photos during the journey, and drove safely in some really nasty east coast weather. He really cares about animals and was very knowledgeable. He even made sure our 8-week-old puppy didn't touch the dirty ground because he still needs another Parvo shot. I would highly recommend S. Benton Enterprises if you are looking to transport your pet! We are so thankful.

Steve and his family made our guys, Cato a 2 yr Newfoundland and Jackson a 4 yr old cat, very comfortable during their drive and temporary stay while we completed settlements and moved from PA to GA. While we were missing our guys, we were provided updates and photos showing how comfortable and at ease they were in the temporary situation. Their daughter Gracie was enamored with Cato’s gentleness and has even offers to sit for us in the future. This is a good family owned company and God help me if I ever move again, I would not hesitate to reach out for their assistance.

Steve did a really good job of transporting my cat from North Carolina to Pennsylvania. Steve not only agreed to give me a discount because I said I am a student and am short of money, but he also drove really fast as well. It took him 7.5 hours to finish the trip while my boyfriend had to spend two days when he took the cat to his place several months ago. Steve is really professional! Thanks!

S benton Enterprise is THE courier/transport service to use. I’ve booked with Citizen Shipper several times now (as I am a TICA Giant European Maine Coon Breeder), and I have never been happier with a shipper than in my experience with this transporter. He is very responsive, courteous, personable, always early or right on time, and my kitten was delivered safe & sound to her destination at the scheduled delivery time. I received updates and photos throughout the duration of the trip, was notified anytime something came up or a stop was made. We’ll definitely book with them again for our future pet transport needs and highly recommend. Thank you guys!!!

Steven was beyond amazing for our dog relocation! I was super nervous because our dog is an Old English Sheepdog so he’s big (110 pounds) and has a lot of hair so he gets hot quickly so was concerned about the long journey. Before booking Steven answered all my questions and followed through with additional requests I made. He even stopped at a grocery store to pick up grilled chicken because I knew our dog would be too nervous to eat his dry food on the road. I also received text updates with photos every 3-4 hours. And he was delivered ahead of time! Steven is reliable, friendly, and I would definitely use him again and recommend him for others!

Distance: 577 Miles
Comment:

Steve was great! The breeder had a short window for pickup and Steve communicated with the breeder directly when there was an accident and traffic was at a complete stop. The breeder had nothing but praises about communication and the pickup! He said Steve cleaned the crate(which already appeared clean) in front of him with Lysol wipes and waited until it was completed dry, lined it with a puppy pad and then placing the puppy in the crate. We received our puppy early the next day as scheduled. The puppy obviously liked Steve, which to me means he talked to him and treated him well. Steve was well equipped to handle puppy accidents, which happen when traveling long distances with a young puppy. We will use Steve again if needed and the breeder already has him scheduled to deliver another puppy.

Sent pictures and videos of my fur baby along the drive. I would trust him with my life. I am so very grateful for him and what he does. Words can not express how great he (and his service) was for me. Thank you, so very much.

Steven helped bring us peace of mind by checking in with us and sending us pictures throughout their road trip. Thank you again, Steven.

The pet transport service that Steve provided for our new Boston Terrier puppy was just incredible. His extensive experience with pets was a big plus. He was timely and in constant contact prior to and during the trip, and always kept us up to date with his location. He sent photos when he picked up our puppy and throughout the trip. He treated our new puppy with every kindness and made sure he was safe and taken care of at all times. I would highly recommend Steve not only for pet transport jobs but also for anything that needs to be shipped. We are completely satisfied with the service he provided. Thanks Steve!

S. Benton Enterprises LLC is now part of our certified driving team, offering you the most trusted and secure transportation available.

Experience:

I have hauled and towed for over 15 years. I take pride in my deliveries being on time and in the same condition as when received. I am an animal lover also. We own a Shepard mix, Shepard , black mouth curr, and cat. Many on here are not licensed and /or insured. Please protect you pet and yourself and make sure who you pick is. This is one way many are able to offer lower prices . As well as hauling full vehicles of animals. Our overhead is higher using new vehicles, license, insurance to protect you and your pet, cleaning supplies and so on. I will respond to messages as soon as possible. I only access the site during transports when I am stopped. My wife also monitors the site but she work Monday-Thursday for a company and does short distance deliveries Friday-Sunday. Thanks Steve & Lisa

Achievements:

50 Shipments Completed 10 Pet 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.
