The Nice List

Our BBB offers customers the chance to write reviews about companies they’ve worked with. These are a few kind words we’ve seen about Accredited Businesses in the past month.

Berry Built & Design, Inc. (Spokane Valley, WA)

We now have the kitchen of our dreams! With the patience and care the DesignTeam at Berry Built provided we arrived at a plan that gave us what we wanted in our kitchen. Walls came down, plumbers and electricians arrived, dry wallers , painters and floor people all arrived in a timely manner and if there was to be a delay I was always kept informed by **** *****. I appreciated the overall tidiness, at the end of each day the vacuum was used, things were put in a centralized area and for the most part we remained functioning in our home. The crew on a whole was friendly and very respectful. Matt and **** ***** were always available during the project and when a issue arose they immediately resolved it. Would I recommend Berry Built, ABSOLUTELY! Should We have another project in the future would I call them, ABSOLUTELY! I feel as though we gained a beautiful kitchen and new friends in the process! ~Terry S.

Chipman & Taylor Chevrolet-Oldsmobile Co. (Pullman, WA)

I brought my vehicle in for a transmission service recently and the staff at Chipman and Taylor was great. They serviced my vehicle and made sure I had a ride to and from work. They went above and beyond what they could have done. ***** was so helpful in explaining what they problem was with my vehicle and made sure to keep me posted on the status of it. I would highly reccomend this service team for anyone needing service to their vehicle. ~Frank W.

Be Timeshare Free (Livingston, MT)

After having negative experiences with a few other timeshare companies I'd tried to work with, I contacted Be Timeshare Free. I am very happy I did. I received wonderful help and was informed every step along the way what to expect and a time frame in which each one would take place. Everyone I interacted with at this company did a fantastic job. The price was reasonable and, while it did take a bit longer than I originally anticipated, it still was a reasonable length of time and I was kept up to date. I heartily recommend this company. ~Bonnie D.

Parry Jewelers, Inc. (Yakima, WA)

This organization is the most professional, caring business I have ever had an encounter with. Everything is wonderful about them. I come from out of town just to do business with them, if its buy diamonds or just repairs. I would highly recommend them to anyone. ~Teresa G.

Accreditation Spotlight: BBB Benefit Breakdown


Add the Customer Review Button to your Website

 

The BBB Customer Review Button is a tool to drive feedback and interaction from your customers. This button can easily be added to your website and direct visitors to write a customer review on your BBB Business Review.

 

Below are step-by-step instructions on how to install the Customer Review Button on your website!

Why are BBB's Customer Reviews Better?

 

BBB Customer Reviews are free and must be from a person who has had an interaction with your business. They cannot be done anonymously, and you are notified 24 hours prior to them going live so that you may respond or alert BBB that the review was not posted by a customer of yours.

 

Get started!

  1. Go to your AB Only Page to log in.
  2. Choose 'Generate Your Customer Review Button' on the left hand side.
  3. Choose the Customer Review Button you like.
  4. Once chosen, the HTML code for your button will generate.
  5. Copy and paste the HTML code where you want it to appear on your website while in ‘edit mode’.

If you have questions or need assistance, contact your Accredited Business department at 800-248-2356.













Newsworthy!

 

Trade Show Season is here… Are you ready?

 

BBB hosted a booth at the Spokane Home & Yard Show this past month, and we were amazed at the beautiful landscape and product displays we saw. We were also overjoyed to see BBB Accredited Businesses proudly displaying their accreditation status for all to see!

 

Why is BBB Accreditation important at trade shows?

 

Differentiation! At a show with 50-100 similar businesses, what sets you apart? Making your booth interactive and fun is the first step, but also showing potential customers you set your company to higher standards is imperative.

 

Why does BBB have booths at trade shows?

 

We want to show off BBB Accredited Businesses like you! We educate consumers to make smart buying decisions, like researching companies before they buy. We encourage trade show attendees to look up companies with us on the spot to see their ratings, BBB Accreditation status, etc. We remind them that BBB Accredited Businesses have high standards and will proudly prove it.

 

BBB has also been spotted at the Coeur d’Alene Chamber Business After Hours show and Yakima Chamber Business Expo. We’ll see you in Missoula in April!

 

If you neeed a new certificate or BBB logo for your trade show booth, call us at 800-248-2356.









 Naming Names summarizes our region’s complaints for the previous month. Businesses that are called out have either failed to answer consumer complaints filed with the BBB, or they have received a high volume of complaints. We encourage ethical business standards and hold both accredited and non-accredited businesses accountable.

If any Accredited Business does not comply with our standards, the BBB suspends Accreditation and sends their status to the Board of Directors for review. Corrections and clarifications to previous Naming Names are welcome. Please send any questions or comments to info@spokane.bbb.org.
