Complaint / review text:
After submitting more than 50 quotes on Thumbtack I'm giving up. Most of the people requesting quotes never respond and seem to hire no one at all, as near as I can tell.
I was hired once and the person never followed through and I was unable to contact her. I invested a great deal of time and effort in creating a good profile and I have all 5 star reviews. I have linked to my business website. This may seem like a good idea for small businesses and single practitioners like me.
But those of us who run legitimate licensed businesses are out of place on Thumbtack. I'm not sure that most of those requesting quotes are serious and I'm beginning to question whether they are legitimate. To the degree that they might be legit at all they are bottom feeders looking for cheap prices over quality work.
This has been a colossal waste of time and money. Stay away!
