Finally a platform for home maintenance- that works !! 5/5
I’ve used it twice for different needs and am happy with all aspects. Payment is not through the app which I like. The repairs and maintenance issues I had were quickly taken care of and at a reasonable price. This is a new era for locating home care professionals.
Poor app look elsewhere 1/5
Posted for window repair, submitted to at least 6 contractors over one month now NOT EVEN ONE REPLY but keep getting emails from thumbtack asking how my project is going?
A totally useless app!
Awesome App 5/5
This app helped my immensely during my projects before listing my home. A real life saver because everything is so consolidated. Highly recommend it.
Easy way to find help for all kinds of projects 4/5
The app is easy to use, though there are some functionalities I don’t see. For example, my dashboard listing my projects doesn’t show easy links to reviews, I can’t seem to add or change reviews, etc.
Love the app but... 4/5
By maid if honor
This app came in handy. But need to be able to mark project complete
Convenient resource to find contractors and repair technicians 5/5
By typhoon stroller
Being a past user of Home Advisor and Angie’s List, I found Thumbtack to be another excellent resource to research the local “supply and availability” of services, contractors, and repair personnel. After indicating my need for landscaping and sod installation, I was contacted via Thumbtack messaging by two landscape contractors, one of which I selected after phone, text, and email communications. I also had access to customer reviews and whether the contractor was in “high demand.” My only criticism was that once you enter your home zip code, some of the suggested contractors are over 50-100 miles away. They are usually the ones who decline the job.
Not sure what they consider “local” 4/5
I wanted driving lessons. They gave me a local pro who lives on Long Island, NY, about three hours from my home in central New Jersey.
I guess this is good if the pros actually serve the area in which you live. In the meantime, if you see a CR-V on the road in central Jersey, give it a wide berth.
Edit: +2 star for a quick and empathetic response. I assume all the local driving pros are busy with HS students this time of year.
Contractor Oriented 4/5
By Alpharetta Dweller
The rules of the website changed: now it forces to select a contractor for a project. I haven’t found an option to wait for the contractor’s bets. Not as great as it used to be.
Has potential 2/5
Its a great idea but poor execution. The usability of the app is poor. You can’t edit, delete, or mark complete any projects. So you’ll forever have contractors messaging you about something you posted months ago. Or if something big changed on a project you have to post a whole new one instead of editing the existing one. Then the vendors get confused. And you can’t turn off email notifications, which are high volume. Overall probably wont use again unless they make some improvements.
Thank you for responding, I think it’s great and shows you care. It also gives me the opportunity as the consumer to help give additional feedback. Leaving projects open indefinitely does not help communication it actually hurts it. I should be able to effectively communicate to vendors what projects are complete, and which are not yet by being able to update my project details and statuses accordingly. In addition, leaving a project open does nothing for the consumer nor contractor if the project is done and I no longer need those services. And what if as the consumer I dont want to have open communication with that contractor? My only option is to delete your app, which many on here end up doing.
The disable email function does not work. I disabled that the first day I downloaded that app and have continued to get emails ever since. I’d much rather pay money and use a different app that has the features and benefits I need for managing my projects.
Keep making improvements and I’ll download your app again in the future. Thanks again for responding.
Great resource!! 5/5
I found them on line and a very successful first engagement.
Bright Home cleaning Solution 5/5
STOP 🛑 ✋ Use these cleaners. I was embarrassed my house was so messy and dirty. I stressed and worried but Daniela calmed me and assured me not to worry. WOW WOW WOW!!! They arrived on time, were friendly and courteous and cleaned my mess to perfection. They are very reasonable and sent several workers, all of which worked cheerfully and very hard.
Unprofessional Individuals 1/5
I was trying to find some help for an hour to help me move my belongings. I thought this was a good route to go because newer companies trying to get off the ground was a bit cheaper. I’m not expecting top notch, throw the boxes if we need to, that’s fine. But one guy quoted me 145% more than he advertised and then stated it was for equipment I didn’t need. Was very rude and disrespectful. Honestly, better off going to Home Depot and recruiting help than using this app. At least people there are nicer!!
Way too many emails 2/5
It’s a decent app but stop sending me 800 emails per project. I dread setting up another bid cause I’ll get spammed through out each process of getting a job done.
I understand your business model and nps scores are based on getting pros more gigs and getting them reviewed and junk but I don’t need to be handheld through each step.
Careful and thorough service 5/5
By Planter caretaker
Movers Joe and Rueben arrive on time to move a number of mature house plants from one home to another. The plants were various sizes and 6 of them were very large (4ft wide, 6 ft tall or more and heavy.
They moved everything in a regular truck, not an enclosed moving vehicle and were prepared with wrapping paper, cords, boxes and tape. First they used the boxes to fit around the base of each plant then wrapped each plant completely with wrapping paper and tape. This step took about an hour and protected the plants during the drive. It took about an hour to wrap the plants with paper and tape. They loaded the plants to the bed of the truck then secured them with cords.
When they reached the destination, they offloaded the plants and removed the wrapping. The plants were in the same condition as they were when picked up, had all their leaves, no torn or damaged branches.
Joe and Rueben did a great job, were helpful throughout the packing and moving and were very courteous. Best of all, they took all the wrappings with them - I didn’t have to deal with discarding the wrapping.
I would recommend 1Stop Movers, Joe and Rueben in particular to my family and friends.
Unable to add photos 1/5
Adding to photos to jobs is only supported by android. Thumbtack won’t even allow for uploading pictures on a desktop. Disappointed
I’m pleased! 5/5
By Angus McViddy
It is nice to have a reliable site like this to navigate things like painting your house!!
Groovy Grooming is Great! 5/5
By Leslie &
Just finished having my almost 1 yr old Longhair Chihuahua, Max, bathed by Felicia & Kurt, and they were awesome! Felicia is warm and friendly and treated Max wonderfully. The whole process took about 20 minutes and the price was reasonable. I’ll definitely be using her again. Thanks, Felicia!! 🐶
No Better Handyman App 5/5
There’s no better app out there than Thumbtack. I always enjoy working with the people I find on here.
Resume writers 1/5
I was undoubtedly cheated by the First Lady who proclaimed to be excellent. I was asked to pay upfront and I did very naively. She was unprofessional and had a very unwelcoming tone and response time once she received payment. This website should monitor for newcomers and not allow people to charge upfront for services not provided satisfactory.
Predatory App 1/5
Won’t let you delete your projects in the hope they get more Pros to respond, which pays them. Ends up making the consumer and professional both angry. The worst is that they recognize this issue and won’t do anything about it. Predatory to consumers!
Can’t close out projects 2/5
So I can start a project and receive bidders, but once complete there’s no button to turn off the project. I still have other contractors saying they can help. This is a waste of time for the contractors and frustrating for employers.
Can never get a reply 1/5
Tried four projects now and never get a reply
Doesn’t work anymore 1/5
App doesn’t work anymore. Doesn’t load pages, but can see old conversations
Glad i used Thumbtack 5/5
I just hired movers through Thumbtack. They had great reviews which were well deserved. I got a good value from a very professional group.
Why can’t I leave a review for a business that canceled on me at the last minute?
Scam/Price Gouging 1/5
Auto charges $75 leads to a dozen or more contractors for the same project. The “customer” is instantly a ghost and Thumbtack will not reply to inquiries. It appears that Thumbtack is creating fake accounts to drive corporate revenue.
Very happy when using thumbtack 5/5
We have used thumbtack to hire movers, landscapers and an electrician. Super satisfied in every case. We will continue to use this app.
Unlicensed and unregulated contractors 1/5
By Tasty Human
Thumbtack claimed they vet their contractors. They don’t and there is no way for you to vet them either.
They sent an unlicensed contractor to my house. That person was sent by an unlicensed contractor service that operates with thumbtack.
Neither company will take responsibility for the damages cause by the unlicensed contractor they sent. Claiming my work request wasn’t specific enough to dictate the work to be done. Mind you there is no option to create your own work request. One must put from their own generic and vague list.
User-friendly, easy to navigate 5/5
My husband and I recently started utilizing Thumbtack for various projects around our house. The app is user-friendly, and it’s very easy to search for any services you are looking for. You get to choose who you want to contact without being bombarded with unsolicited texts or phone calls. Providers have been very responsive, friendly and professional. I highly recommend this app.
Sparkling Clean Patio! 5/5
By SCW hiker girl
Grand Canyon did a very good job on our large patio with 3 sets of patio furniture. He arrived on time and power washed the patio, moved the furniture back and wiped down everything. Looks sparkling clean! He was very nice and easy to communicate with, thanks again.
Super Happy 5/5
I have found every professional I need from light maintenancecarpet cleaning, garden work and house cleaning. Best App in this biz!
Happy and pain free is so nice 5/5
She is a perfect massage person for my family
I had the opportunity to use THR Group services and Tia was awesome. I had a short timeframe to work with because of a deadline and she delivered an A class resume. She responded quickly and was very affordable. I truly appreciate her and the excellent service that was provided. If you need a resume, you can trust she will get it done. I will be referring her to those I know.
Great for finding a quality professional quickly 5/5
The Pros compete for our businesses and are very
Will not use again 1/5
Everyone that I have gotten off this app has been completely incompetent. I cannot trust any of the reviews on any contractors. I have to think it's extremely easy for contractors to post their own reviews. Also, they need to add the ability to delete jobs.
LOVE this app!!! 5/5
Worst company to work with. 1/5
By Artistic lule inc
In the beginning they were vary caring for the contractors.
The charge was between 10-20$ to bid a job.
But after getting greedy and not caring anymore about the contractors, they are charging 50$-100$ for jobs that even if you get u will make 500$.
They send the jobs to like 6-12 contractors in the same time, and good luck of getting that job.
As the costumer is looking for the cheapest price, the job value will go super low.
We invested like 1000$ on this app and didnt get any job,waste of money and a lot of stress.
Try other apps guys.
Ans thank you Thumbtacks for being worthless
Gets results! 5/5
I have used Thumbtack for 2 projects in the past month and got excellent results with both. I am a fan! Easy to use, great follow-up, proactive communication. The best I’ve used.
Ask for Eddie 5/5
Excellent choice for services...
The best app I have used for home repair 5/5
By fast lane adopter
I have gotten quick responses for a number of small projects at good prices. Thumbtack’s business model seems well thought out and has worked nicely for me. As an app maker myself, I say “chapeau” to the Thumbtack team
Get er done from hand palms 5/5
Thumbtack is awesome it saves looking through the phone book, googling contractors or getting referred out. I love their fact check backgrounds too so you’ll know a contractors trustworthiness. Plus you get to see their ratings and look in on their previous work.
Easy to use, found what I needed within 10 minutes 5/5
Super simple, I heard back from companies within minutes and was able to get all of my projects scheduled within ten minutes of posting.
Customer service useless. Do not trust 1/5
For the record, I am not someone who enjoys writing bad reviews and usually writes good ones.
But after my husband hired someone off Thumbtack to do work in our house who ended up being horrible and dishonest, he contacted Thumbtack to try to at least be able to leave a review to warn others about this guy, but Thumbtack was completely useless and said nothing they can do. So basically the way they operate can allow scammer contractors to get away with it.
The guy came to do some work in the house, messed it up terribly, wasted our time, money, and materials, then ghosted us completely. And Thumbtack will not do anything about it.
Rude people and overpriced! Don’t ever bother to download this app 1/5
Rude people an Overpriced ! And expensive prices, I know is not the Apps fault but maybe some regulations with the people creating their accounts here will help.
This app is a scam
Very user unfriendly 2/5
There’s no way to edit or delete a project once you create it. That’s just unforgivable.
Derek McAuliff 5/5
Derek single handedly removed old deck in back yard and built awesome new custom deck far exceeding our original.. he was here everyday early and finished on schedule and budget..
I highly recommend his work..
