Prior to the rental, FriendWithA may do a background check before approving your account. As part of the background check, FriendWithA may review publicly available databases prior to making a decision. In general, small misdemeanors like speeding tickets, drinking underage, etc.. will not have an adverse decision on your approval process.
However, things like violent felonies, theft/fraud, robbery, terrorist watchlist, sex offenders, etc.. all will cause you to fail your background check.
In cases where incidents occurred over 7 years ago, FriendWithA will review appropriately.
Although we strive to be perfect and search every available database, sometimes there are gaps in the data available or what is allowed to see under each state, which does cause some gaps. Our goal is to make FriendWithA as safe a community to interact and rent your equipment from others.
