It is indeed a racket. Unfortunately, many customers look to see if a business is BBB accredited before making a decision on where to have their car repaired. We look on the annual $650 expense as a necessary evil.

In today's world we have reviews in multiple places. People search reviews on all sorts of products and services. It's a different world now. Before internet reviews were so readily available then AAA and BBB were more important. Today I think nobody cares, since good info about a business is so easy to get. I've refused to pay a subscription to BBB and AAA just so I could get recommended. Don't need it.

I was a member in the early 70’s for about 5 or 6 years. Never saw the benefit and the cost failed to justify the expense so it was terminated. I doubt if today’s generation is even aware of the BBB which really makes it pointless.

I agree 100% with all the comments. As a business owner, you CLEARLY see that it's... well, for the lack of a better word... "a racket". Problem is - what do your customers say? It's a difficult decision, but still expensive. 

Hope this helps!

      I am going to borrow a quote from billionaire, Warren Buffet, “The best investment you can make is in yourself,” This statement, while simplistic, speaks volumes. A shop owner is much more than a boss, a shop owner is a leader. And leaders are solely responsible for the success of their team. This means that you must work hard and commit to a life of continuous learning and improvement. It also means that if the team fails, a leader must always blame himself or herself for that failure and find ways to improve.
      For your business to flourish, you must invest your time and energy in understanding what your role is in your company. It also means that you must be committed to continually improving your level of competence. This does not mean that every task is your responsibility. However, it does mean that the buck stops with you. If your business is not where it needs to be, or you are looking for increased growth, then it is your obligation to do the hard work and set goals, have the vision, perform the research, and develop the plan to achieve your overall objectives.
      When you invest in yourself to become the best leader and the best businessperson you can be, others around you will feed off your energy and your passion. This sends a strong message to everyone on your team that you have what it takes to bring the company to the next level.
      One last thing, another obligation to your company is assembling the right team of people around you. Once you have the right people, you need to invest in them too. Find what truly motivates them, not what you believe inspires them. Be a coach to your employees and always strive to bring out the best in them. Be strong with your convictions and expectations, build strong relationships with your employees, and don’t be afraid of admitting when you drop the ball.
      While Warren Buffet is best known for making billions of dollars with his investment strategies, I want to believe that this quote has its basis in something that money cannot buy.
