I am just curious as to why there seems to be so much name stealing going on in our local area. Home Inspectors are using names that are already being used by long time established companies, and in some cases within 20 miles or another inspector and blatantly copying his name. In some cases, Canadian Inspectors are grabbing American names and just sticking a dot. ca behind it, as if that would make it anything less than stealing.
Business is business and everyone is out to make a decent living but I drive a lot to service my clients and it amazes me that when I am in a local town and I see an advertised name for years on posters etc, and then a franchise inspector decides to change his name and blatantly just copies this local guys name and creates a new identify.
Personally I have a number of registered names that I operate under and believe that exposure is the best way to gain business, but my God, can’t people think for themselves and create their own identity.
Any way, this is just a “rant” as I always check to see who is listed where in Google, and these people who “steal” from fellow Home Inspectors are beyond despicable.
