The goods or package/s being carried must be checked by the traveller thoroughly and there should be no mismatch between what is booked on the sociotransit website and the physical thing or goods being sent.

All financial transactions are facilitated through our secure system, ensuring peace of mind for the traveller and seeker / wanter alike. We hold payment until we get confirmation from the seeker/ wanter that they have received the package + confirmation from the traveller that he has delivered. This is to make sure that both users are satisfied with each other.
Sociotransit profiles empower users to establish their reputation and research their potential traveller or seeker/ wanter. Profiles can include photos, verified phone numbers and email addresses, connections to Facebook and Twitter, and reviews and references from other Sociotransit users.

The traveller or seeker/ wanter can only leave reviews after a confirmed transaction through the Sociotransit platform.
