San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 22, 2005
Harbor Credit’s (http://www.harborcredit.com) dedication to empowering the consumer with financial know-how is stretching even further, this time by delivering painstaking, unbiased reviews of the leading financial companies that offer automotive, mortgage, credit card, student loans, personal loan and credit report products and services.
“This facet of our website is centered on the very principals Harbor Credit was founded – shifting the balance of power back to the consumer,” said Rob Gaudio, CEO of Harbor Credit. “Dealing with lending companies you know little about can be a dangerous venture; complicating and frustrating. The inside information we provide will ideally make interactions with lenders and other financial companies a much easier and rewarding experience.”
Harbor Credit’s reviews begin by rating every single company thoroughly, objectively, and impartially, instead of relying on a third party or the lenders themselves. Consumers can now access these ratings and other relevant information, all in one, easy-to-navigate site.
The rating system follows a five star scale (1 to 5, 5 being the best) with four categories:
1. Rates, Fees & Products
2. Customer service
3. Clarity of Information
4. Ease of Use
All four categories are weighted equally because a poor performance in any one category can dramatically alter an experience with a lender. In the end, the average of the four scores is calculated, equating to an Overall Rating.
Harbor Credit hopes that this system will help consumers make more confident decisions about the companies they do business with. And, living up to its credo, Harbor Credit will also be adding new company reviews and recommendations on an ongoing basis. Financial companies that wish to be added to one of the aforementioned industry lists can simply visit HarborCredit.com and fill out the applicable form (http://www.harborcredit.com/07footer/review.asp).
