“It is more important than ever to be sure you Start With Trust as you do business in today’s marketplace.” said John North, BBB president & CEO. “This list is just one of the many examples of why it’s important to do your homework and check companies out before working with them. It can save you time, money and headaches. These companies alone represent 226 complaints to your BBB over the past three years. Nearly a third of these complaints (66) were closed as unanswered or unresolved.”
All of these businesses have F ratings with your Better Business Bureau. Your BBB assigns letter grades to local businesses ranging from A+ to F. The letter grade system represents your BBB’s degree of confidence businesses are operating in trustworthy manners and will make good faith efforts to resolve customer concerns. An F rating is your BBB’s lowest grade. Typically, businesses with F ratings have unanswered and/or unresolved complaints or a pattern of complaints that reflects failure by the businesses to deal with the causes of customer problems. Your BBB acknowledges it’s not as much about the number of complaints a company has, but how they handle them.
John North said, “Your BBB can help you find reliable companies. You can check out BBB business reviews on companies 24 hours a day, seven days a week by visiting www.bbb.org or calling (937) 222-5825 or (800) 776-5301. These business reviews provide valuable information on companies, such as how long they’ve been in business, their complaint history, BBB rating and whether or not they’re BBB Accredited Businesses. Choosing to do business with BBB Accredited Businesses can make all the difference. These companies have to have a B rating or higher and respond to complaints filed against them. They strive to do business the right way and agree to adhere to standards of trust so they can better differentiate themselves in a competitive marketplace.”
