Ripoff Report REVIEW / General Steel Corporation Commitment to Customer Satisfaction

General Steel is committed to the Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program -- a program that benefits the consumer, which helps to increase consumer satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business, ..Verified By Ripoff Report.

When a company or individual joins the Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Program, they must make a commitment to us in writing to 'doing whatever it takes to make things right with their customers.' What does that mean? It means that Ripoff Report expects that members of our CAP program will review and respond to ALL customer complaints promptly. It means that every complaint will be taken seriously and every customer will be treated fairly and with respect. It means if a customer did not receive what they expected, the company will work with that customer to fix the issue. It means that if a customer requests a refund and if there is any reasonable basis for that request, we expect the customer will be given a prompt refund (some refund requests may not be reasonable, so this does not mean a refund is guaranteed in every case). Making things right can mean lots of different things to different people, but our point is this - by working closely with the company or individual to resolve any disputes, Ripoff Report can track the footprints of customer service to ensure that our CAP members are doing everything they can to treat customers fairly and to increase their customer satisfaction.

By Ripoff Report

General Steel approached Rip-Off Report with the intent of wanting to resolve any customer issues and reports posted on Rip-off Report by engaging customers in General Steels customer service and mutual resolution program. As a Part of the Corporate Advocacy Program the General Steel has asked the Ripoff Report staff to send an email to all of those who filed a complaint in the past, letting the customer know, the General Steel is committed to mutually resolve the issue, .. whatever it takes to do so. Ripoff Report always monitors these emails to insure General Steel does what they agreed to which is to engage those customers in its customer service and mutual resolution program. The people at General Steel did just that and will continue to demonstrate a superior commitment to serving its customers.

We have all witnessed countless industries change and evolve to better serve its customers. The steel building industry is no exception, before General Steel those wanting to take advantage of a pre-engineered metal building for their construction project had to turn to a contractor, however today and over the past two decades General Steel has created a way for the general public to cut out the middle man and purchase a steel building that will perfectly suit their needs without paying a contractors retail price. Unfortunately as in any other industry there are more pretenders than experts offering pre-engineered steel buildings. Every day consumers search for a reputable steel building company but more often than not, they find themselves browsing through the website of a company who is just a pretender. This is why brand names exist in every industry, a brand provides consumers a name they know and can trust. General Steel is the dependable brand name America knows and has trusted with their steel building projects for two decades. Although General Steel is not new the experience you will have with the General is new to the steel building industry because it cannot be imitated.

As stated above, General Steel Corporation is committed to 100% customer satisfaction and has a proven this with its track record of exactly 100% satisfaction spanning tens of thousands of completed projects. General Steel has made and will continue to make every possible effort to ensure that all customers have a positive experience throughout the process of their project and forever after the completion of their building. After speaking with the management at General Steel and emailing anyone who filed a complaint in the past, Ripoff Report is proud to give General Steel a positive Rating. General Steel made efforts to ensure that all customers were satisfied and its President Jeff Knight assured Rip-off Report that General Steel has a well-defined and evolved business model that results in a corporate culture of 100% customer satisfaction as the top priority. Jeff Knight, the owner of General Steel, stated We thoroughly investigate all customer issues and use them as tools to improve our customer service and apply each issue to our companys ongoing education training program our dedicated staff attends weekly.

General Steels customer service division provides General Steel customers with a direct line of communication, there are absolutely no hoops to jump through or gatekeepers, simply direct quick resolutions.


General Steel continues to be committed to educating our customers, and prospective customers, to make their building project a true success. Throughout recent decades General Steel has been the dominating force in the steel building industry, supplying our customers with the best buildings on the market and services second to none. We have developed programs to help our customers in every phase of their projects from inception to completion. General Steel has teams of professionals to meet your building needs no matter how large or small. Over the years we at General Steel have seen many competitors come and go and try to imitate General Steel. There is nothing wrong with striving to try to be like the industry leader. In fact, healthy competition always works out best for the customer. However, we have witnessed how the internet has greatly changed the dynamics in the industry. General Steel feels an obligation to prospective buyers to speak out on this topic. At General Steel we have seen and heard too many horror stories of how people just like you, fell victim to the internet. The internet can be a wonderful tool for many things. However, there are two major pitfalls it has created in the steel building industry. The first problem is that it makes everybody look the same! That gives customers a false sense of security. When all of the websites look relatively the same you should just be able to shop for the cheapest price, right? Well the answer is a resounding NO! Most of those websites are just that only websites! On the other end you have nothing more than a couple of guys and a computer. When you dont have a legitimate company with true professionals backing you up, you can only imagine the catastrophic results that can happen.

Unfortunately, at General Steel we receive countless phone calls with stories of how different people thought they found a great deal on the internet and now they cant get a returned call; or the website is no longer there; or they changed the price on me! The list goes on and on from there. Our hope is that General Steel can keep this from happening to you. Consumers need to ask themselves, have I ever heard of this company? Will they be there to help me when I need it? When it comes to a building project, it is not worth taking chances. You need the strength of a company you know and can trust. General Steels thousands of satisfied customers can attest to that. The second problem we have seen develop is that people can post anything they want on the internet regardless of whether it is true or not. Whats worse is that websites post these disparagements without vetting them for accuracy. We know that is probably not new information for you, but we have found that competitors are sinking to new lows in these tough times. We have been finding that since they cannot compete, our competitors will try to play dirty. They have even gone as far as pretending to be customers of General Steel and posing false complaints on the internet. They do this in hopes to scare customers away from doing business with General Steel, opening up the chance for them to make a sale. There really are people out there that go to those kinds of measures. We at General Steel thought that we should clear the air on this subject. Despite anything you may find on the internet, General Steel has a complaint ratio that is unprecedentedly low in the industry.

We will go to the most extreme lengths to make sure that our customers are taken care of. .. General Steel is an independently owned debt free, full-service pre-engineered steel building corporation that provides the only the highest quality American made buildings and superior customer service throughout the United States and Internationally since 1997.
