There's no doubt there are dozens of companies that offer some type of award to businesses, but how many are legitimate?
Can you name one company in the nation that fairly, accurately and independently evaluates small businesses, professionals and service centers?
When you really think about it, it's hard the come up with a list. That's our point. How do you know who's good, who's bad and who's in it just for the money? The internet has complicated the situation even more with new sites popping up everyday that claim to be the authority on everything from pest control to purchasing a swimming pool.
TradeCertified is uniquely qualified to help you find a great local professional for several reasons.
First, we are a completely independent organization. Our entire business is based on our ability to say with certainty that our local endorsement is won without regard to fees paid or advertising consideration. Our team works to identify businesses that qualify for the ultimate third-party recommendation and then we help them collect the documents necessary to be reviewed by an independent third-party accounting firm. These CPA firms are not owned by us, nor does anyone on our staff have any financial interest or influence in who wins and who does not win. TradeCertified is merely a facilitator to help the local business obtain an independent review based on merit and publish the results for consumers to make their own conclusions.
Second, we can save you a ton of time. We know most families have a limited amount of time to individually evaluate every local professional who services your zip code. Some Internet sites list up to 700 firms in a local market. We are not simply a directory. Our team works diligently to identify the premier small businesses, professionals and service centers and want to get our TradeCertified professional on your radar without wasting your time. We never profile more than five businesses in a zip code based on the industry. That should give you a good variety of quality choices without forcing you to quit your day job just to research local pros.
And Third, all TradeCertified services are FREE to consumers and available 24/7. There are no lengthy forms or requests for private information to see our local TradeCertified winners.
