Experiences, reviews and opinions of companies by customers
It is not easy to divide the good from the bad when it comes to companies. Due to the internet revolution, companies are growing like weeds and disappearing just as quickly. The Internet has greatly increased the growth of untrustworthy or scam companies, but it can also truly help to fight against this phenomena. Before everyone had communal access to the Internet, it was not as easy to reach out to large audiences to share your story of a negative experience with a business. Therefore, that company could continuously cheat their consumers without anyone picking up on it. Nowadays, that’s not as easy, as use of the Internet can ensure that disrespectful companies are put in their place. That way, companies are forced to not look at price alone, but also at many other aspects. Therefore, the cheapest company is no longer necessarily the best, nor the one that sells the most. This is the reason why AllReviews was founded, to enforce a balance between price and quality.
You pay, so you decide.
Everyone is a customer. Whether you take out insurance, change to another energy supplier or buy a sweater from an online shop, there is no way around it. And there are equally many offers as there are buyers, from cheap to sustainable to environmentally friendly to customer friendly. We understand that you don’t know where to look. What’s the difference between one life insurance policy and another? And are there even any differences or is the only difference the monthly costs? Are the calling minutes of your mobile phone subscription sufficient or do you have to pay extra each month? It is important to read as many independent reviews as possible before you buy or purchase an item. We, from AllReviews try to help by providing you with useful information. That way, by taking advantage of the reviews and opinions of thousands of customers that went before you, you can decide if you still want to make your purchase.
Why do you mainly focus on insurance companies, energy suppliers, holiday/travel agencies, telecom, investing and dating?
We try to make enough categories so that we can get as close as possible to including all businesses throughout South Africa. Of course, that is not always possible because there are many exceptions, so we focus our attention on companies that demand a long time commitment or have a large impact on your life. Even though we also discuss many online shops for clothing, computers, cameras, garden gear, household items and kitchen supplies, an occasional bad bargain in these categories is not as bad than in an energy contract or insurance. The sweater or shirt that you bought online can be sent back and a tablet is easier to return than a contract that binds you for one or two years. With an item that is purchased online you’ll have to wait and see if the company keeps to their promised delivery date, has a good warranty policy and whether the ordering process was satisfactory. We still discuss many of these companies. But the biggest mistakes can be made with big purchases and/or at companies that want a long time commitment, like a holiday cottage in Barcelona or Croatia. These purchases have big influences on your life for a longer time and can be more of a dissapointment when unsuccessful such as an unsatisfactory holiday or dating site. That is why it is important that you are well informed. Think for instance of the energy contract that you take out for 1 or 3 years. A wrong choice commits you for years and makes you pay way more than necessary. Or did you book a holiday with a bad travel agency? Or an accommodation provider that doesn't keep their promises? That’s what you can tell your fellow customers and clients. That way we save each other from making a mistake, going on a holiday from hell or having a contract that makes your life miserable.
