The Better Business Bureau, or BBB, is a quality rating standard for businesses in the United States. BBB uses grade letters to represent its opinion of a business, based on reviews and complaints. The ratings go from A+ to F to represent a company’s reputation.
The BBB uses the following factors to determine its grade:
- The number of complaints filed
- The severity of the complaints
- The resolution time of a complaint
- The company’s willingness to cooperate
- Whether the issue was fixed permanently
