For general contractors of luxury properties one of the most important aspects of any construction or renovation process is peace of mind. They simply need to know that their subcontractors are reputable, and that their property and safety will not be compromised. That’s why background checks are so important. At ProSight Specialty Insurance we know this area can be easily overlooked, and are excited to be working with backgroundchecks.com to bring you resources to help protect yourself, your business, and your clients.

In a survey of our policyholders, we found that while 80% of our luxury home builders conduct background checks on their direct employees, less than half take the extra step to perform them on sub-contractors. Through our partnership with backgroundchecks.com we offer savings of up to 70%, a user-friendly format, and instant results on many searches, to save you time and money on the searches you may  already be doing, and make it quick, convenient, and cost-effective to conduct them on your subcontractors as well.

Give yourself and your clients’ peace of mind with package deals, or pick and choose to suit your needs with searches of:

  • Criminal records, wants, and warrants. With one of the most extensive databases available in its industry, backgroundchecks.com searches millions of records held by county, state, and federal offices. Search sex and violent offender registries in all 50 states.
  • Verification Services. Get confirmation of social security numbers, licenses and certificates, education, previous employment, and more.
  • Motor Vehicle Records. Access previous incidents including accidents, violations, revoked licenses, and driving while intoxicated offenses.

Going the extra mile to remain at the forefront of background checking services, backgroundchecks.com also allows you to stay in the know of your current employees with yearly ongoing criminal activity monitoring for only $4 per employee, and drug screening available in over 2,000 occupational clinics nationwide.
