BBB Weather Warning

January 03, 2014

Marlborough, MA - A strong snow storm has made its way to the Northeast and BBB is warning residents to be prepared for severe weather. Consumers should have a plan and know where to turn after the storm. 

BBB warns homeowners to beware of door-to-door solicitations. Severe storms can bring fly-by-night contractors to the area. Often these contractors solicit work door-to-door, have no license or contact information and require high, upfront fees before beginning any work. BBB recommends researching the business at before agreeing to have any work done.
