HANDYMAN CONNECTION does not guaranty that all craftsman and/or service advisors have been background checked, nor does HANDYMAN CONNECTION warrant or represent that profile and screening information is up to date. HANDYMAN CONNECTION performs a background check on new franchisees by using a third-party source to conduct a criminal, financial and sex offender search in the state where the franchise candidate is located.

WE PERFORM THE ABOVE SCREENING BASED UPON INFORMATION PROVIDED TO HANDYMAN CONNECTION BY THE INDIVIDUAL, AND WE RELY ON THIRD PARTY DATA FOR THE ACCURACY OF THIS INFORMATION.
