Owner VERIFICATION badge
26. The VERIFIED badge used by garagurent.com on its site is an indication that the owner of a property detailed on its site has undergone a rigorous examination into their identity (using GB Group’s identity verification services) for the purposes of preventing fraud. If you wish to check that the owner of a particular property detailed on garagurent.com’s site that is using the VERIFIED badge has been vetted by garagurent.com, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the property concerned.
