I get background checks every day. I have clients ask questions regularly about how to speed up background checks. There are some things that are out of our control - such as some of the sites we pull records from are only open during the work week, therefore, a Saturday background check without Wyoming records is going to have to wait until the next business day.
There are things that are within your control. Make sure we have their full name. This includes maiden names. A young woman in her early 20s or someone that has recently married, probably has all of the credit under their maiden name. We can run the married name, however, if we run the maiden name, we are going to get all of the results.
We really need DOB and SSN. Without these two pieces of information, you are limiting which databases we can pull from.
It really helps to have prior addresses. If this isn't possible, at least provide us the states they have lived in. If we have difficulty locating them, we can start with the state they have lived in and go from there.
Make sure we can read the request. Many people have the Tenant or applicant fill out the paperwork. If there is any doubt about the handwriting, print, the correct information out yourself.
These simple request will speed up your background check.
