I was with Thumbtack when they first started. Made numerous bids never any word back. When they went to the $14 unlimited bid per month I tried that. Bid on everything and anything, high and low. Not one response. Now there is a new scammer called Outsource.com. 15 to...Read more
I signed up for Thumbtack exactly 18 days ago. I submitted 21 detailed quotes to 21 leads I received throughout those 18 days. Usually I received about 3-15 leads every day (mostly from my area, and some out of state) and the reason I did not respond to more leads was...Read more

- Customers do not view quotes

I had reservations about THUMBTACK for quite some time now but I gave it a chance. I like the concept but CERTAINLY do not believe the professionals should be charged. It seems they are defrauding professionals and free-lancers.... The "INTERNET ROBOT" service they...Read more

Thumbtack - Greedy company won’t last long
They used to have 5 pros bidding a job, now they allow 15 bidders. But in their software, it showed 0 bidders until you dish out $20 and find out there were already 14 bidders for the same job. Greedy companies don’t last.
After several months on Thumbtack, I have spent 100's of dollars on quotes to "potential clients" but was only hired once. the odds, at least from my experience, is about 100-1 against you. The clients are not required to give a reason why your proposal was not...Read more

Up to this point & time I would say that Thumbtack's guarantee has not been truthful. Come to find out the recommended contractor wasn't even a real business, nor was the contractor a registered plumber. My Wife hired a recommended professional contractor through...Read more

I list with thumbtack.com as a remodeling contractor. No charge to list. They notify me with first name and last initial , town or community, and the type of work to be done. Usually small jobs , sometimes too far away and some I just do not perform. Then to contact...Read more
I recently purchased a house in NJ. I used Thumbtack.com to find a hardwood floor refinisher. I located a 11 times 5 star reviewed company called DLS flooring on Thumbtack’s website. Thumbtack says they’ve been background checked and vetted, licensed and insured. I...Read more
I have been using Thumbtack for about 3 months, have spent probably $ 300.00 in credits, and am starting to think the whole thing is a SCAM. Sure, I have gotten a few legitimate customers, but I seriously doubt the authenticity of some of these "requests"...more like...Read more
I recently hired a "PRO" from Thumbtack to install a glass mosaic tiled shower. The tile job is completely unacceptable. The grout lines and tile are so uneven that it hurts your eyes. I stopped them from completing the job once I walked into the bath and saw the...Read more
