Dealing with an untrustworthy business or contractor can lead to a dead end with frustrating results. Of course, paying for services from any company carries some risk but those risks are usually less if the service provider has proper permits and licenses in place at all times.
The first step should always involve checking for licenses; if they don’t have one then report them right away. Once validated as legitimate by licensing authorities such as government agencies (such us state departments), contractors tend to operate more securely than their counterparts without permits/licenses because there is evidence that says so – meaning customers feel better about themselves when working closely alongside regulated companies like these ones too since it shows accountability on behalf of management teams which creates transparency within operations.
The BBB is an organization dedicated to protecting consumers from fraud and other unethical practices. It’s also your best resource for reporting unlicensed businesses, who would only cause harm in any number of ways if they’re not properly licensed with the proper authorities.
You can file an online complaint with the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) about unlicensed businesses that are ripping people off and breaking the law.
