*  All turnaround times are estimated working days and are provided as a guide only.  Turnaround times are based on our experience of the time taken for the majority of these checks to be delivered. However, CVCheck is reliant on third parties for supply of information, and in some cases those third parties may take longer to supply that information.  Accordingly, CVCheck does not give any time guarantees for any checks or bundle packages.  It is CVCheck’s policy and practice to keep you informed as much as possible if there are any unusual delays.
