Great app 5/5
Only showed up. 1 was not available. The others never responded and the app just said find more and there were no more.
Not good for a small business 3/5
For a service costs $10 you take $3 thats insane and you take whether hired or not.
Great App for your tool belt! 5/5
I’ve had really good luck with every service provider I’ve hired through Thumbtack. I like the ability to quickly upload project info, including photos, and have quotes from multiple contractors.
Connect with Local Craftsmen 5/5
By Very Salty Barnacle
I recently moved and needed a bunch of work done last-minute, including polishing wood floors, interior painting and tree trimming. Thumbtack has saved me thousands of dollars by connecting me with local business owners eager to do the job right without spending excessive amounts on marketing. Great app, great community.
Handyman 3 C Consulting 5/5
By Mumkin M
I hired Enrique to caulk my bathroom vanity and to also seal an opening in my basement with plywood and sealant. He did a wonderful job on both. His price was very reasonable, he cleaned up after the job and he is very pleasant to work with. I will definitely hire him again for other projects
Above and beyond 5/5
By Ella is a peanut
I needed some trees removed and a small jungle cleared. What I envisioned it would look like finished was so much less than how it turned out! It was literally amazing to see the difference! They are efficient and were very professional to work with. The price was very fair compared to another bid and compared to previous work I had done by another company. I would definitely hire them again for future tree removal/clearing needs!!!
Useless and waste of time 1/5
By Candyfornia grrl
I tried to find a lawn mowing service but no one is available if they not available plz remove their name from the list so that it will be easy for us to find people when we need it. I hate wasting time and waiting for their msg just to see they not available. Not gonna recommend this app to anyone and im deleting it right now from my phone.
Saved me from having to delay listing my home 5/5
Thumbtack made it so easy to get in contact with quality companies to get repairs done quickly to various areas of my home. Such a great app, will be using often!
Patton’s handy service 5/5
By Jen & William Murphy
Very professional, hardworking, timely, courteous, punctual and cleans up afterwards. Lennie has fixed so many things around the house for us, including installing new faucets, fixing leaking pipes, rescreening an outdoor porch, repairing a broken door, sturdying our stair rails, installing a new vent hood. We plan to use his services for all of our future needs and projects. He does the job right, no shortcuts! He’s Awesome and we highly recommend his services. Don’t hesitate, he’s the one.
Doesn’t work 1/5
I was unable to set up my email in this app. Every link I got to my email address to verify just led me to google instead of the actual app. You can ask for quotes unless you’re verified. There’s also no way to report a problem inside of the app to let the developers know.
Great place to find the right people for the job. 5/5
They recommended the best teak furniture refurbish team to us IGK Wood Restoration . Very happy with their work.
Outstanding job 5/5
I would highly recommend Rodriguez gardening. We had a big weeding job, and they knocked it out efficiently while still doing an outstanding job at a fare price. It was easy to see that they knew what they were doing.
I’m not sure if it’s so reliable, what’s the verification to knowing it’s great... I’ve got a job or recommendation it..
Rated by my granddaughter 5/5
as her fears left with patience and
caring ways of trainer Megan. Fact
is she left excited with many happy memories of Cupcake a Chestnut color horse and Little Bill. I left wishing her time in Tucson was longer although she truly enjoyed her experience and is looking forward to her next lesson. Five stars seems to little ~
Do not use this app. The real contractors are losing money and pay an average of twenty dollars a bid and all the while the consumer is unaware of their double standard of billing.
Review and Recommendation 5/5
By Bhulku Paritosh
This app is amazing. The pro that is listed here are genuine, professional and ethical. I do not go to any other app after I started using Thumbtack. I would strongly recommend using this app for any type of work. Actually I would say use only this app for any and every problems to be resolved or work to be done at a reasonable price and professionally.
This company CANNOT get any worse. I've had so many problems with this company it's not even funny. A month ago they charged me $30 for a client who wanted to pay me $60 total lol.
The icing on the cake came today. I deleted the application. They emailed me that someone hired me. I clicked the email and was charged $35. When contacting customer service they just say "nothing you say is true".
WARNING TO ALL DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE. I PROMISE!!!!!
All that thumbtack requires to become a “Pro” is a phone number and an email address. Then if a Pro takes your deposit on a big project and disappears, you are on your own. They don’t provide any assistance. We are currently working with the police to track down our money but Thumbtack could make it much easier if they would do some due diligence when allowing Pros to sign up.
Update: Prior to leaving my review, I contacted Thumbtack. They gave me "all the information they had on the pro" which was his phone number and said good luck! Disheartening? It cost us thousands. Like I said, beware, Thumbtack doesn't expect anything from their Pros and won't support you if you have an issue.
Look at the job 4/5
I found a great company to pressure wash my two houses. The job was great and the price was very reasonable. Thumbtack made that happen.
Pretty Good 5/5
Wish we could alter or update project request and delete them if not needed.
Painting job is done. 5/5
Please quit emailing me asking me if my project is done. It is an Carlos painting took care of me him and his helper. They did a very good job and I’m happy.
Doesn’t work 1/5
By plainly spoken
I get a response from a contractor, and when I try to open their reply, the email and the app take me to a page that says “oops something went wrong.” I can’t even let the contractors know why I am not responding. A huge waste of time. I ended up googling and finding someone that way.
Keyboard won't work 1/5
I tried to use it, but the initial screen where it asks what project you are researching, the keyboard wont type in the top box. It let me enter my zipcode on the second line but no matter what i tried i could not enter my project description.
Alexander A 4/5
By URK. A
Great App it’s very useful and perfect keep adding new features
I have to admit, when it comes to getting a home task done that I can do myself but don’t have the time, tools or vehicle, I am a real cheapskate. Thumbtack is where I turn for jobs like that because I invariably procure quality pros ready to get after it. Well done.
Great idea and really works 5/5
There are a lot of apps that are supposed to help you find help. This one actually does it.
Love this app 5/5
By Rali again
So easy to use. Always have exactly what I need!!!
Totally useless 1/5
I would rather rely on yelp than this app. It does not work.
Shady app practices 1/5
I can’t cancel any project I submit, even after I have gone a different route AND contacted Thumbtack customer service for help. The service providers pay each time they contact you about being interested, and the service makes you wait a week for an email before you can begin the cancellation process!
How much money are the claiming from unsuspecting service providers when the job is already done or booked? Shady and unethical.
I have used the app for various services and it has been fine but my last experience was an awful one. I got insulted, threatened to charge me more and this provider lied twice in his response to my review. I contacted thumbtack and told them about it and there’s nothing they can do about it so now I question the veracity of their reviews.
Can’t even log in. 1/5
After clicking on the email verification link Chrome just pops up and then exits. Can’t even verify my email address to log in.
Young’s Roofing 5/5
By Bill H Louisville
Josh was professional, on time and very helpful. He recommended the needed service and did some quick work on a problem spot and did so at no charge. Will definitely keep him in mind for any additional work.
Go back to the old way! 1/5
By Anniel Lob
I used to love Thumbtack. It was easy to get several quotes with just one submission, but the recent changes have made it extremely complicated and confusing. What used to be a simple submission now requires several messages to several vendors. What’s the point? I can do that on Google...
Roll the dice 2/5
Sometimes you get a great contractor, sometimes you get an awful one. Hired a mover twice. The first move was flawless, the second one ended up with my new big screen tv smashed along with framed artwork. The contractor only gave me a $75 discount off of the cost. I left a truthful review on Thumbtack and he ended up threatening me, saying he knew where I lived. He also said he was going to sue me. When I contacted Thumbtack and sent them a transcript of our conversation, they did nothing. Today I hired a handyman. I took the whole day off of work and waited for him. He ended up texting me 30 minutes after he was supposed to arrive to say he had a tooth pulled hours ago and was in pain. He then asked if we could reschedule. I asked if he could come in the morning and he said he’d let me know. Five hours later I’m still waiting for his answer. Both contractors had great reviews too so I was surprised at the awful service. I’m going back to Home Advisor.
But I love the website!!
Great to find pros for small jobs 5/5
I’ve gotten two electricians and a locksmith on ThumbTak. A friend at work recommended it; she used it to have remodeling work done. Very easy app to use. Gives you lots of control. You won’t be bombarded with unwanted contacts. Also, no cost to you, the consumer.
Won’t sync up 1/5
I found thumbtack on a websearch and contacted my cleaners through the website. I then went to download the app to make messaging easier but every time it sent me a confirmation email it would say something is wrong and my app would not sync with the message I sent on the website. I had to delete the app so I could just message through the website.
Best App EVER 5/5
It’s a one stop shop for everything I need. So many vendors to work with
Hell no! 1/5
Will not use in future as a professional service provider. They change their pricing structure and then don’t tell you. They nickel and dime you on EVERYTHING. make a mistake and hopeful for a refund? Guess again. No thanks.
DO NOT GET THIS APP!! It’s a trap 1/5
This is BAD app!! DO NOT GET IT.
I don’t think Thumbtack run any background check or credential for these contractors.
BE VERY WARY OF WHO YOU CONTACT THROUGH THIS APP.
DO NOT TRUST THIS APP.
I tried to hire a contractor from this app. He showed up but I can tell he was shady and I couldn’t push him out the door fast enough.
I asked for Thumbtack headquarters contact information, they are not allowed to give the information either! What a joke this is.
AGAIN, THIS IS AWFUL APP! Don’t trust this company.
By Laura Barnum
Very professional. Extremely knowledgeable about a broad range of issues. And a gentleman. I will certainly hire him again.
Works great. Let me archive or delete jobs. 4/5
My page of jobs is confusing cause some are finished, some are new, some I want to take down cause they’re not relevant. Give me more control.
Used to be easy to use 1/5
This site used to be straight forward and easy to use. Very difficult and manual steps now.
Fake accounts 1/5
By Omer Music
Not sure how it is for other services. As a music teacher l, the vast majority of quotes you get are from fake accounts sending out requests for quotes just so you end up paying for quoting a user that doesn’t even answer your messages.
I have evidence for very suspicious behavior of Thumbtack users that allegedly asked for a quote for my services.
I am moving and have a few jobs I want done before I leave, including electrical work, carpet cleaning, maid service, plumbing, power washing the exterior of the house, painting the interior, and some small handyman jobs. Not all of the work has been completed as I wanted to wait for some of it until immediately before my family leaves this house. The work that has been done was quality work all done by fantastic professionals!
I'd recommend Thumbtack to anyone looking for any kind of professional.
Thanks Thumb Tack 5/5
By Tony styles
Your App has been a great feature!!!!
when I have needed it the most !!
I can’t post my projects. 1/5
I can’t post my projects to get multiple quotes.
Not Satisfied 3/5
It is a nice idea to gather all these pros in one location, thank you, I liked the app. However, this is my third day since I downloaded the app, and I am trying to talk to a pro of ACT, but every time me and my son deactivated and without reason! We used three emails to sign up, but they are all deactivated after one day and even after signing up immediately. It is really weird and need to be solved by the developers.
