One of the indicators that your Company is legitimate and can be trusted to do a professional job for you is to look for an A+ Accredited Business rating with the Better Business Bureau. There is a custom review rating that helps to create a rating from the BBB.
What is the Better Business Bureau?
Better Business Bureaus are organized as nonprofit corporations and financed by membership dues or subscriptions paid by responsible business and professional firms in the community. Reputable firms are solicited for membership to maintain and expand services provided by the BBB.
BBB Accredited Businesses must meet certain standards to qualify for accreditation and to remain accredited. You can search on their website for BBB Accredited Businesses by location and/or industry.
For more than 100 years, Better Business Bureau has been helping people find businesses, brands, and charities they can trust. In 2016, people turned to BBB more than 167 million times for BBB Business Profiles on more than 5.2 million businesses and Charity Reports on 11,000 charities, all available for free at bbb.org. The Council of Better Business Bureaus is the umbrella organization for the local, independent BBBs in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, as well as home to its national and international programs on dispute resolution, advertising review, and industry self-regulation.
BBB’s mission is to be the leader in advancing marketplace trust by:
- Setting standards for marketplace trust
- Encouraging and supporting best practices by engaging with and educating consumers and businesses
- Celebrating marketplace role models
- Calling out and addressing substandard marketplace behavior
- Creating a community of trustworthy businesses and charities
BBB sees trust as a function of two primary factors – integrity and performance. Integrity includes respect, ethics, and intent. Performance speaks to a business’s track record of delivering results in accordance with BBB standards and/or addressing customer concerns in a timely, satisfactory manner.
