InfoMart is best-known for its impressive turnaround. Their software will yield a comprehensive and reliable background check report in less than two business days. They recommend different pre-employment screening options based on employee and industry type. This provider is best for small businesses because it has no minimum requirements, industry-specific screenings, an intuitive online portal, and a transparent fee structure.

They provide background checks for all kinds of companies, but they’re best for those in the finance, food service, automotive, education, healthcare, hospitality, sharing economy, sports and entertainment, manufacturing, retail, and transportation sectors.

You might need a bit of help if you’re a very small company or startup looking to check your new hires or first job candidates. InfoMart makes this available.


Everyone looking for a people finder platform online will find this provider to be a more than satisfactory option. Almost everything is possible, from reverse lookups to basic info searches. The platform allows users to find people by entering simple information like their full names, cities, or states, like the majority of people search companies. Then, the user is redirected to a page showing various profiles that correspond to the data entered. They can select the one that fits their query best.

This service’s background reports include not only name, date of birth, and age, but also the person’s phone number, current address, past addresses, relatives, aliases, email addresses, neighbors, property records, social network accounts, judgments, liens, marriage and divorce records, lawsuits, criminal record, and bankruptcies. Imagine the capacity of their software!

Users of the service can buy a single report or a premier membership. The second option comes with a flat fee and unlimited searches. Your membership will be automatically renewed each month, but you can cancel it without incurring a penalty at any time.


Our final choice comes with address lookup, reverse phone number lookup, unlimited background reports, and free Dark Web monitoring. Two subscription packages for background check services are available, differing only in pricing and duration (either one or two months). Both options feature unlimited screening reports with email addresses, relatives, date of birth, aliases, phone numbers, address history, court and arrest records, social media information (including blogs and dating apps), and government license information.  

TruthFinder’s subscriptions include an extended data search, designed to provide additional details about the subject of the search. Results may include information about foreclosures, weapon permits, assets, associates, and more. TruthFinder even offers information about family trees. Access to downloadable and printable reports is instant.
