Are Public Records Databases Worth the Money?
Whether you’re looking for a long lost family member or friend, interested in running a background check on yourself, or following up on caregivers and neighbors, Public Records databases can be your best friend. Indeed, there are plenty of companies that offer these services, but not all are treated (or shall we say, created) equal. One of the first questions that everyone asks is why it costs money to access these records? After all, they are public – and free – right?
It is true that these records are public and until recently, were only held at government offices where you would have to pay a visit if you wanted to do any type of search. Not to mention, it was difficult to do multiple searches in one visit, as accessing these documents was often time consuming and difficult. Over the years, this information has become accessible online, but since it is a service, it does cost a small fee.
The membership fee is what is used to keep the databases up and running, ensuring that the information is up-to-date and current. Plus, members save themselves the time and hassle of having to locate a government office and look through hundreds of thousands of Public Record files. With online tools, all you have to do is plug in the name of the person you’re looking for and the information will be instantly pulled up.
So do these Public Records databases really work? Is it worth becoming a member? Many people agree yes. While the reasons vary for why people use these databases, they are found to be highly accurate, provide instant results and take the leg work out of searching for people. Businesses especially love this service, as they can run background checks from the convenience of their own office and get instant results for one low membership cost.
Before choosing a company, be sure that they offer:
- 1) A large, up-to-date database that holds over 3.2 billion records
- 2) A money-back guarantee so that customers can get their money back if they’re not happy with the service
- 3) 24/7 technical support and committed customer support team
- 4) An easy interface that allows its users to plug and go
- 5) Low membership fees
- 6) Access to public marriage records, death records, birth records, arrest records, criminal court records, and divorce records.
