We had a great experience with Steve and Stekli Ventures. Initially we were flexible, but ended up having a deadline on short notice. Steve came through, and was able to pick up our antique cabinet from out-of-state and bring it to us, as promised, on very short notice. Our cabinet was well-wrapped with photo documentation of the piece when he collected it from the seller. Overall, an A+ experience!

I had a great experience with Steve shipping a large wood bed frame from Ohio to NY. The shipment was not 'time sensitive' and while others wanted over $1,000, Steve only charged $225. If you're not in a big hurry and want a great price, ship with Steve. I highly recommend him. I will definitely use Steve again.

I'm very sorry I can't leave a positive review, but this is the worst experience we have ever had shipping LTL freight. We listed that this shipment for a customer of ours needed to be delivered by 3/22/19 and the shipper promised he'd deliver within that timeframe. Long story short, there were constant excuses and delays, and at over two weeks past the due date, our customer gave us an ultimatum date of 4/8 or he'd cancel the order. Which was understandable! He'd been very patient waiting for this item which was now over two weeks late! The shipper (Steve) then asked us to lie to our customer, saying he'd already picked it up when he hadn't -- to hold out for more time. That was the final straw, and we had to load up the item ourselves and drive it 1300 miles, taking most of a week away from our business to repair the relationship with our customer, with thousands of dollars in lost time and extra expense to haul this halfway across the country ourselves. I could not be more disappointed. I think Steve had a driver or something quit on him, but he was not thinking of how much of a bind he was putting us in by putting off our shipment constantly rather than just telling us straight that he could not deliver within the stated timeframe and we'd have to find another shipper. THAT would have been the honest thing to do. Instead, it was constant excuses of a hurt ankle, can't find trailer, driver quit, bad back, etc., just to keep us holding on a few more days. This cost us a lot of money and even more time. I do appreciate Citizenshipper coming through so we at least did not lose the booking fee.

Very poor experience. We had an important shipment that was time sensitive and the driver kept leading us on that he was coming, but wouldn't pin down the date and time of pickup. When it came down to the wire he never came and just offered to come in 3 weeks. I would give negative 5 stars if I could.

First and most importantly, Steve took great care with my shipment (an antique desk and mirror) and it arrived well protected and with no damage. He was also responsive and friendly. After thoroughly reading all other reviews I was prepared to be patient and flexible. The problem was that even when i was given a specific timeline and schedule for pick up and delivery, it was never held to, which caused concern and frustration. My advice is this - if you aren't bothered by daily changes in plans by the driver, then he is a good choice, as his fee was the most competitive and he took care with my shipment. If timing is of importance or you are bothered by continual changes, pay a bit more and go with another driver.

Steve is a 5-star-plus. His bid was the most reasonable I'd received for an item I needed transported from CO to MO. He was responsive, arrived when he said he would, and kept in excellent communication. The item I had shipped was in excellent condition upon receipt, and Steve carried it into my home. A very friendly and courteous man. All around, a very positive experience and would certainly use Citizen Shipper and Steve again.

There was a glitch of some type after I hired my driver as he could not get my list of items. That was not the fault of the driver but the website. We did need make a few changes in the pickup time. Delivery was on the day he promised. There was one box with my wife's sewing machine in it that I forgot to not check off my list. Steve stopped his truck and looked for it and I met him and picked it up. He is friendly and honest.

If you don't mind limited contact and don't need your item for a few days out, this could be your guy. Very poor in communication once item is picked up, no updates unless prompted. Extremely vague on location information (would never give exact location). Arrived 3 days later than original quote. Was quoted Monday morning pickup, Monday later delivery. Delivery was Thursday afternoon. Many issues with truck and one with weather. Due to extremely late delivery I was not able to meet the guy (had to be back to work) but what little conversations we had, he seems nice enough. I personally would not use him again (I need communication when you're hauling my $$$ bike for me), but he may work for you???

Achievements:

50 Shipments Completed 10 Household Shipments Completed Background Screening Completed DOT Check 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.
