Chris Hauptmann

I really appreciated having Commissionaires help navigate the (record suspension) process because it can be a difficult one.”

Bernie Lahmann | Vice President | Davidson and Sons Custom Brokers Ltd., Vancouver

For security purposes related to the shipping industry, we needed to get criminal background checks performed for all our employees. Commissionaires BC’s team came to our office, setup and was able to process everyone in less then a day. This was very convenient for all the staff. Best of all it was done for a very reasonable cost.

Chris Hauptmann
