Why Should You Apply To Become An Accredited Business With BBB Serving Northeast Florida & The Southeast Atlantic?
BBB is a leader in advancing marketplace trust. Today’s savvy consumers and businesses want control and confidence in choosing a company that has made a public commitment to doing what is right. For most decision makers, evaluating the trustworthiness of a business is one of the first steps in making a product purchase or service decision. Today and maybe more than in the past, people want assurance from a reliable third party, someone they can trust, not from friends or dated brochures, they need and want it from an unbiased third party that delivers updated relevant information. That is why we tell the public to Start with Trust; start their search with BBB Accredited Businesses. These companies have made a public commitment to live up to the Standards for Trust- a comprehensive set of policies and procedures focuses on how businesses should treat the public-fairly and honestly.
