It's hard to get an honest, straight-forward recommendation anymore - especially when it comes to generators.
Most generator dealers are loyal to the single brand on their shelves, according to Jon Hoch, founder of ElectricGeneratorsDirect.com -- an online generator superstore (http://www.electricgeneratorsdirect.com).
"Guess what? The Yamaha dealer is going to recommend Yamaha. The Mitsubishi dealer is going to recommend Mitsubishi. Surprise!" jokes Hoch.
So, how do you truly know how each model stacks up?
ElectricGeneratorsDirect.com just launched "EGD Recommends" to help shoppers compare the top generator brands in 7 different categories:
1. Tiny Recreational Generators
2. Small Recreational Generators
3. Mid-Sized Emergency Generators
4. Large Emergency Generators
5. X-Large Emergency Generators
6. Home Standby Generators
7. Residential/Commercial Standby Generator
The recommendations are more than simply ranking generators into small, medium and large. Everyone already does that, says Hoch.
In addition, they're not just a list of best sellers. Just because it's a best seller doesn't give it "Best-in-Class" status.
The e-tailer combined the last two years of sales history, dozens of customer reviews and some personal insight to generate their final rankings.
"We’ve been selling generators online since 2002. We know what's great. We know what's junk. And best of all, we're not afraid to say so," says Hoch.
Once the dust and data settled, only 21 of 124 generators sold by ElectricGeneratorsDirect.com were given the prestigious "EGD Recommends" status.
The recommended generators can be seen at http://www.electricgeneratorsdirect.com/catalog/recommends.php.
In addition, Hoch personally wrote online reviews for each generator, explaining why the company recommended it.
By providing the recommendations and reviews, ElectricGeneratorsDirect.com hopes to arm shoppers with enough ammunition to pick the perfect generator for their needs.
“We’re loyal to our customers -- not our suppliers,” says Hoch. “Our intention is to make the shopping experience as simple as possible. We hope they appreciate our honesty.”
