Thumbtack dropped the ball

Original review posted by user Mar 20, 2022

I needed an electrician and thought it would be a good idea to go through thumbtack. What could possible go wrong, right?

Well, both electricians that I hired (because I trusted Thumbtack) took off before finishing the job and I was left to complete it myself (thank God for YouTube)!!

Not only did they not fulfill the contract but they also were paid as if they had! Thumbtack let a third party decide who was at fault and they were dead wrong when they decided in favor of the pro. I was out $2000, three weeks, and a ton of undue stress with no further path to justice other than paying more money for a private attorney.

That was over a year ago and nothing has been done. Im sure they hoped I would go away but it keeps haunting me and this injustice shouldnt be tolerated by anyone.

User's recommendation: Research, read reviews, do background checks, frisk, metal detector scan, and then pray and/or cross your fingers when hiring through Thumbtack.

Monetary Loss: $2000.

Preferred solution: Full refund.
