What Some of Our Clients Have Said!

Pre-Check has been a wonderful background check vendor. They offer the products that we need regarding human capital at an affordable price. The staff is excellent at notifying us when our paperwork is not filled out properly and their responses to email requests are done in a timely manner. Pre-Check’s service to our company is as if they believe that we are their only source of bread and butter which is what keeps us coming back!
Merri GiacomazzoPel LLC | Human Resources
Pre-Check has been a great screening partner for our business. As a regulated business, we must screen all employees before employment and occasionally after hire. Other companies have annual minimums, but we do not always need screening services annually. Pre-Check has been great to work with whenever we need them.
Nick FarleyEclipse Testing
I had been struggling for months trying to find a qualified candidate to fill a sales position at Spooner. I won’t bore you with all the trials and tribulations of the fruitless searches because all that changed when I tried Smart Hire. It was such a relief to have this hiring burden off my desk. All I had to do was answer some easy questions, and before I knew it, really good, qualified applicants were sent directly to my email inbox. All I had to do was set it and forget it!
Andy LembachSpooner Inc. | Chief Marketing Officer
Pre-Check is always my first call for background screening… Dependable, fast and accurate. Outstanding customer service!
Mark LittleRadcliffe & Taylor
Pre-Check is a great company. Glad we use you and look forward to our company growing and using you more. Pre-Check and the staff are always there to provide the very best customer service! I love that the office is smaller and you know who to go to for what, and they’re always available.

Pre-Check does a great job and answers quickly to any issues or questions that come up along the way.
