Over charged and service provider refuses to provide full name and business address

Over charged, refuses to give full name and address. It took several days to have a live phone call to discuss concerns.

User's recommendation: Get a 2nd or 33d or 4th quote.

Over charged for a lead

I recently installed a wood burning furnace in a garage client had all the materials and was charged a fair price of 200$. The lead costed 50$ which is expensive for a 200$ job. A fair price for this lead is 15-20$. I would like some money refunded.

No response to my request for a refund for services not used

Contacted twice. No response. Still no refund applied to my credit card on which the services were charged but not used. I am still waiting over a month. Im very disappointed as this was a substantial amount of money.

User's recommendation: Please don’t cancel a service.

Unsatisfied

Thumbtack is drawing funds from my account. Have attempted to contact them. Unable to get an actual person. Says they will text me... sends text saying sorry we missed you! This was not the problem 2 years ago. Thumbs down from me
