It is 300. per year for us. We did not renew, I never have had one customer call the BBB to check me out. I feel that with the presence of Angie's List and other organizations like them, the BBB has lost the steam.
I also have never gotten or lost a job based on BBB membership. For us we reallocated those dollars towards improving some other ads we run.
You don't think they would tell you they did not got a single check up on you, they might be pulling the wool over on you. They can't afford to lose you yearly fee, IMO, it's not worth it. Save your money and spend it other ways.
Ditto with Ron. I was with them, they are nothing more than an over glorified referral service. BBB cant touch you legally. I wont go into that here because of the general public, but most of us here know who the "Big Dog" of business is, and it sure aint the BBB!
I had only one guy call me because of my BBB rating. I gave him a price to do some work, we shook hands on the deal...I never heard from him since. I tried calling and telling him that I have the materials ready. He always had some excuse. That has been my only experience so far with the BBB.:furious: I feel the same way about angie's list, service magic, etc. I don't like them because they attract bargain-hunter type customers who like to get 10 bids and then pick somebody out of the 10. I specialize in EMERGENCIES...so I don't need these type of information-gathering, coupon-cutting, bargain-hunter customer's.:thumbdown:
