Why Accreditation is Important
When you're buying an expensive product online, you should buy only from a business accredited by a reputable source, such as the Better Business Bureau.
Accreditation is essentially your insurance that the accrediting agency, which is an organization whose very purpose is to make these kinds of assessments, has already determined that the company in question is legitimate.
If a business says it's accredited, you should be able to visit the website of the accrediting agency and confirm the accreditation. For example, if you go to www.bbb.org/us/consumers/, which is the consumer section of the website of the Better Business Bureau, you can click on "Check Out a Business or Charity." Then type in the name or URL (which is the company's website address) of the company you're looking into.
Whether online or at a retail store, it's important to buy from a company that is an "authorized reseller" of that product.
The phrase "authorized reseller" means that the manufacturer has a relationship with the company selling the product and has determined that the company is reputable and follows acceptable business practices.
American Medical Sales and Repair is an authorized reseller for the following manufacturers:
American Medical Sales and Repair is accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and has earned an A+ rating from them.
Companies that are BBB-accredited meet eight important standards in their advertising, selling and customer service. http://www.bbb.org/us/bbb-accreditation-standards/
What about the A+? To come up with its "letter grades," the Better Business Bureau verifies and evaluates how a company does business. The rating represents the BBB’s degree of confidence that a business is operating in a trustworthy manner and will make a good faith effort to resolve any customer concerns.
