Nick is amazing! He made the extra effort to accommodate for my inconvenient personal schedule to deliver my elderly (15 years) cat, all the way from New Mexico to Missouri, EARLY! He truly loves animals and dotes on them with the same tenderness as his own, proven by her absolute serenity after a journey that would leave me exasperated and irritable. His service is worth more than just every penny. For the welfare of your pets, you would be wise to hire him.

You can absolutely trust Nick with your pets. Our greyhound Ripley just arrived in Seattle after a super long journey from Ohio and she’s happy & healthy! He was very communicative and is very patient with the animals and us humans! We received photo and location updates along the way. Hopefully we won’t be moving any time soon, but once we do, we would definitely use Nick again if he’s available.

I was skeptical of the services at first but finally got some b_lls to try it out. I chose Nick because he was very patience with me and answered any questions I had like how does the service work, how do you profit from driving, etc. When he gave me a price to ship my two dogs to Chicago, IL, I then paid the admin fee and taxes online and got the website to unlock phone number exchange. Nick arrived as promised and loaded everything in his Nissan car. I asked him to keep my updated on the dogs with pictures and whereabouts and he did everyday until my boys arrived to Chicago, where he received the other half of my money plus tips : ). Thank you Nick. I highly recommend Nick to drive your pets anywhere in the USA. Now I can breath!!! jk.

Comment:

Nick was amazing to say the very least. We have always travelled with our dog and at 10 years old I was very hesitant to travel him without me. Nick made the entire transport easy from the very beginning. He had great communication . He answered all my questions and was like a family member driving him . Nick gave me pictures, videos and updates several times a day and pushed through bad traffic several times to get Atticus home early. We are forever grateful for animal lovers like Nick who do this. He is truly a great transporter and has a true love for the animals he takes care of. I would recommend him a million times over.

The Best!!! If you are lucky enough to have Nick transporting your pet you have nothing to worry about, he's fantastic! My daughter recently began a 1 year wildlife rescue apprenticeship in Texas and was not allowed to bring her cat along. When she said she would handle his transportation to Wyoming from New Mexico I was skeptical but my experience with Nick has completely sold me on CitizenShipper. What a wonderful service and a great guy! I even watched the Chicago Justice for the first time (the season finale) and he is an awesome actor. I barely recognized him, he was so into character.

Where do I start? Nick was amazing!! From pick up to delivery he was in contact with me every step of the way. I am a mom of 3 dogs and they are a handful to say the least! Not to mention they are my babies & he took such great care of them. It was very hard to put them in the care of someone I didn't know much about but Nick eased my mind with the countless texts and pictures of their adventure. I recommend Nick and if I ever need relocation for my dogs in the future I will be contacting him for sure. Thanks again Nick!

All I can say is Nick did an amazing job. He made sure are tortoise made it safely to his California Sanctuary destination. I'm sure it wasn't the easiest delivery he's ever made. But he took very good care of him and kept in contact with me along the way. He told me when he left he was going to make sure he got there safely and he did. I highly recommend Nick. It's easy to deliver packages and when someone can deliver a living animal safely and feed it and do all the care needs that says something good about someone. Not just doing a good job but being a good person.

  • Vehicles: 4 door passenger vehicle, SUV crossover style. ***TIPS ALWAYS APPRECIATED*** Small print: 1. Cancellations: After bid confirmation, cancellation fee of 33% of bid applies if the shipment is canceled for any reason up to three days before the agreed pick-up. If the trip is cancelled within three days of the trip(Trip Day, Day Before, Two Days Before), a 66% cancellation fee will be requested. This is due to the commitment, preparation, and refusal of other trips once yours has been confirmed. Thank you! 2. Travel time: All travel times estimates. Conditions such as inclement weather, traffic or other unforeseen/uncontrollable conditions may exist, therefore travel time may vary slightly from the initial estimated travel time as a result. 3. Communication/Safety: Occasionally, there will be periods with low-to-no cell phone signal based on location (typically traveling through rural areas) and I will be unable to send/receive messages or calls during that brief time which may last from a few minutes to a few hours, depending on exact location until signal returns. Additionally, conditions on the road such as weather or traffic may render communication unsafe; therefore, I will wait until I may safely provide updates about the trip. During a trip, if you do not receive an immediate reply from me, it is due to either temporarily not receiving the message in a no signal area or it is simply unsafe/illegal to use my handheld device while driving and I will return your call/text promptly upon it being safe to do so. Please refrain from repeated multiple attempts to contact me if you do not receive a timely reply, as it may create a safety hazard. Safety is my number one priority; therefore in addition I will refrain from exceeding the speed limit (or drive slightly under if conditions merit a lower speed) which may result in increased travel times. 4. Shared trips: In order to keep bids low for shippers, when appropriate, trips may be shared and travel may vary slightly from a direct route. All bids reflect a shared trip. If a direct trip is preferred, it will substantially increase the cost, however, the option is available. 5. Payment: Half of total bid amount is due in advance at pick-up or before(to cover the initial costs of the trip), with the remainder due upon delivery. Payment may be made in cash or via Paypal. Full payment is accepted in advance, however, as a courtesy I will accept a split payment. Thank you again for choosing me!

25 Shipments Completed 10 Pet Shipments Completed Background Screening Completed CitizenShipper Certified Driver

Drivers who join CitizenShipper are screened for a variety of criminal offenses and driving incidents. We utilize a reputable leader in screening called Single Source Services to perform our criminal background screening which includes national, county level and sex offender databases. The background screening we utilize is called the 'Discovery National'.

What we look for with the background screening:

  • checkNo felonies in the past five years
  • checkNo felonies in the last ten years involving theft, assault or violent crime
  • checkNo DUI within the last five years
  • checkNo patterns of misdemeanors in the past ten years relating to DUI's, theft, assault, or violent crimes.
  • checkNo outstanding warrants for arrest
  • checkDoes not show up in national sex offender registry

The background screening includes a residence trace and returns all names and addresses associated with a social security number, in addition to checking the alias(es) returned through the database and the sex offender data.

Based on the subject's name(s) and date of birth the data returned from the background screening are records from State Departments of Correction, State Record Repositories, County Courts, and sexual predator/violent offenders' databases from all 50 states, DC, Guam, and Puerto Rico. Although this search has great value, and the volumes and sources of data are increasing almost every day, it is not an FCRA compliant service. The data is not updated after being entered into the database and therefore records could be expunged, sealed, or verdicts could have been appealed.

While we believe that the Discovery National is a good foundational screening tool, it is not an exhaustive statewide search of records, and as such we cannot guarantee 100% effectiveness in screening candidates.
