Best Pick Reports\u00ae, a free, annual guide that features independently researched and recommended local home service providers, announced today the launch of the Best Pick Guarantee.“We have demonstrated over time that we keep our promise, which is why we are so assured as we enter our 19th year in operation, dedicating ourselves to thorough customer satisfaction research and a strict qualifying methodology, we now have the most comprehensive guarantee in the home services industry,” said General Manager Greg Robb.The Best Pick Guarantee offers homeowners a refund of up to $1,000 if they receive unsatisfactory service from a Best Pick service provider and attempts at remediation fail. Starting today, homeowners can visit BestPickReports.com to register for the protection for free and read real reviews of local home service providers, such as heating and air conditioning companies, roofers, and painters. The guarantee covers customers in all markets in which Best Pick Reports conducts research, including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Boston, Philadelphia, and the Washington, DC metropolitan area.Unlike its competitors, contractors cannot simply buy their way into the publication. Best Pick Reports requires home service providers to earn an overall A-rating based on telephone and email surveys conducted by its in-house research staff. The company conducts thousands of these interviews each year with homeowners who have had recent experiences with local home service providers. All service providers must also hold proper insurance and professional licenses required by the state in which they provide services. In addition to meeting these standards, every service provider must requalify each year in order to be considered for the distinction again.\u201cWe put homeowners first by conducting the tough research to legitimately identify the best service providers in an industry often known for producing more than its fair share of unsatisfied customers. This guarantee proves that we stand behind our best picks 100 percent,\u201c said Robb.
