How Long do Background Checks Take?

If you’re needing to run a background check on a prospective employee or customer, you’re probably not wanting to wait a long time for the results to come in. I’d bet that customer or job applicant doesn’t want to wait a long time either. So, what is a realistic expectation for quality background checks results?

How Long do Background Checks Take?

According to the University of Berkeley, it can take around 30 days to get the results from an FBI check. So, unless you’ve purchased an instant background check service, it can take quite some time to get your results. You can find services that give you results instantly, however, you must keep in mind that not all background checks services are created equal.

How do I Pick the Right Service?

There are a variety of different background check services available on the web. All of these online resources do vary in price and range in their quality of service. Some offer results that are as simple as an identity verification and others, like the service we offer, are more extensive. We offer more extensive results simply because the majority of businesses need something more than an identity verification. If you can decide what it is you’re needing from the background check, that can help you narrow down your search for the type of background check that will suit you the best.
