Credibility Check


It has become very obvious to me that there is a high demand for information on this topic. This is by far the most visited page on this site right now. For example, out of 500 views to the site 478 went directly to this page.
Unfortunately, I can also see where people tend to leave right away and don't take the time to read down through this page. I have spent a fair amount of time doing research to find different places to be able to check on a company’s reputation. I have no doubt there are more out there and I will keep posting them as I find them.

But for now, please take time to read through this page.
It just might have what you have been looking for to help you.

As far as the business owners viewing this... this is something very important for you to think about as well. For you see, you just may be one of those that the people are doing a check on. It is extremely important to maintain high credibility for your business to be successful. You have a lot of competition out there and bad word of mouth travels fast.

There comes a time when you find yourself, wanting to try new products, are in need of a service, or are looking into a new business adventure.

There are a lot of companies out there for you to choose from. Some have been around for years and others are just starting out. Not every company will be right for you. Some people may absolutely love them, where others were very dissatisfied with them. Everyone's needs are very unique and the trick... is to find the perfect fit.

But the bottom line is... you want the experience to be a good one.
We would like to help where we can in this matter.

Things to consider when checking out a company:

Be very careful about judging a business or company on reports you read
on sites that encourage people to talk about being ripped off. When reading
these posts, look very carefully to see if their complaints are justified.

Was it really the company who was at fault?
It may be a representative who is not being honest or maybe the person themself
did not read or understand the contract they where entering into at the time.

Although, things do happen, so if it was a legitimate complaint be sure to check
into it and see if the company handled it in a professional and timely manner.
This will give you an idea on if they will stand behind the service or products they offer.

Remember, when you are doing a check on complaints,
take into consideration the company's size and volume of transactions.

Recommended steps before doing business with an unknown company:

  • Do an Internet search and see what other people have to say about them.
  • Keep in mind some people have hard feelings -
    Listen to the facts not slander
  • Be sure they have a legitimate phone number and address, be wary if they only list a P.O. box.
  • Call the actual main company and be sure that you have the ability to be assisted by a live person.
  • Ask questions and see if they are answered in a knowledgeable and
    professional manner.
  • Check on any guarantees and cancellation policies.
  • Check to see if they have a good reputation on honoring their guarantee
  • Find out if there will be any automatic recurring fees.
  • Ask for names or references of others they have done business with.
  • Check with Reputable Companies to see if they are in good standing.
  • Do they carry the proper insurance and state license if one is required
  • Check to see if they are registered with the state

  • ~ Be Sure To Read All Contracts Thoroughly ~
