BBB Reason for Ratings

BBB rating is based on 13 factors: Get the details about the factors considered.

Based on BBB files, this business has a BBB Rating of No Rating. The reason is as follows:
*Previous and current pattern: Previously, the BBB Business Review for the company found that customers or potential customers stated products were delivered to them that were not ordered or authorized. Customers also reported difficulty returning the products as there was not full disclosure of the product's origins or contact information. In December 2012, BBB reviewed Midway Industries LLC complaint activity to see if a previously detected pattern remained. More specific information about the pattern of complaints found in this most recent review can be found in the "Additional Complaint Information" section of this Review. *Business response to BBB pattern letter: When the pattern was brought to the business' attention in February 2013, Mr. Brian Wallen, President of Midway Industries LLC, provided a response. In this response, he indicated that Midway Industries LLC was committed to customer satisfaction. He indicated that several changes had been instituted within the company in order to address the BBB's concerns about the difficulty to return products. These changes included increased training for their customer service representatives and making the company's contact information more transparent on both the invoice and packing slips. He stated that the company's return policy has been relaxed and increased funds provided for return services so that any disputed merchandise will be picked up. Regarding the reported unauthorized purchases, Mr. Wallen stated that "all of our sales orders require that only authorized purchasers are placing the order. Following all sales calls, every sale is confirmed through a strict verification process...Promotional items are never sent in exchange for a representative updating contact information and/or signing up for a mailing list. All sales calls and verification calls are recorded for quality control purposes." *Conclusions: BBB records indicate that the changes made by the business have increased their ability to return an unordered product, but has yet to alter the fundamental pattern of complaints that are filed alleging deceptive sales practices. If you are a customer of Commercial Industries and have any concern about your service, you may contact Brandon Riggs at 877-508-1198. BBB will continue to monitor the company and will periodically update this information based on the findings of that review.
