"I wanted an online textbook provider who valued my parents – their time, money and business. When a parent goes to order textbooks, the site needs to be well organized, easy to use, and accurate. I looked at many websites and MBS offered the very best layout and system I could find. When we met with the sales manager, she was well versed in the K-12 market and showed us how MBS would put our parents’ needs first. Once we began working with MBS, we found that the customer service was quick, friendly and efficient.

MBS representatives, from administration to my very own account rep, respond quickly and earnestly, try to meet any concern I have, from a textbook price to a specific family needing help rectifying an order."
Lori Abrams- Librarian & Asst. Guidance
Pusch Ridge Christian Academy- Tucson, AZ
"I made the switch to MBS many years ago because of a horrible experience with another online book service and have never regretted the move. MBS has been the easiest company I have ever dealt with for textbooks in the 30+ years I've been handling textbooks."
