Due to the deception consumers often face in the marketplace, many are hesitant to conduct business with a new company and it’s up to the business to show they are reputable. Consumers want to work with someone they can trust and that’s why more than a million people each year visit our website before making their buying decisions.
Consumers prefer to work with BBB Accredited Businesses because they can trust that the company has met and agreed to uphold BBB’s high standards for ethical business practices. In a competitive marketplace, BBB Accreditation assures consumers that they are choosing a business with a proven track record for being honest, reliable and responsive. Since consumers often compare multiple companies, being accredited gives you a competitive edge.
