Efficient, precise and professional, I am very amazed by Sterling Backcheck. I was given a very tight deadline to complete a background and credit check for securing a job offer for my candidate. I searched around; all the vendors were taking their time to reply. Until I found Sterling Backcheck. Their rep got back to my request shortly, explained all the steps which are simple to follow, and set up account in the same day. It only took two days to get what I needed. They care about your business regardless of whether you’re small or big. I am highly satisfied with the service provided."
