Our Screening Process
If you would like to advertise your services with us, and would like the “Screened” logo on your listing, you will have to submit proof that your business is a legitimate business, and that it has all the necessary licenses, insurances, permits, and/or other documentation that it needs to operate as a legitimate business.
Below is a list of the type of documentation you will need to pass the screening process. You are not required to turn in any of this documentation if you do not care to have the “Screened” logo appear on your listing. You can still advertise your business or service with us at any of the three levels but you will not have the “Screened” logo on your listing, so the public can see your business has been screened by us. You are encouraged to turn all documentation in within 30 days of posting your ad on this website. Please email all documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org or send hard copies to:
