They showed up great, did the estimate and then only emailed after that. Once we told them the two items we wanted to start with they would email once, disappear and not respond to our emails and info. After over a month, I cut them loose and did. Not even heard back from that email either. Would not recommend them or Thumbtack...

He doesn't want to discuss the party at all, he just wanted my information to send the check. Very fishy and don't understand what he is trying to scam. If you find him/her, report to Thumbtack Customer Service and at least you can get your credits back, maybe a few...

Thumbtack recommended a moving company for me. It was called Easy Moving Company from Fort Worth Texas. It was the worst experience that I have ever had from any company. Do NOT use them.

You hot.the nail on the head with this review $4 or more just to send a quote is ridiculous when as you said most people on there are just shopping around. You'd be better off jockeying for position on Craigslist.

Thumbtack is a Joke

They offer up bids that aren't verified only by computer and while they could easily fix this problem, they choose to benefit from the bad bids. Mean while their customer service is required to drink the Thumbtack cool aide. Somehow all of them have "family Business" that uses the company, and yet they can not agree that any of thumbtacks choices are bad. The credits cost $1.67 each, and 1 bid can be anywhere from 3 credits to 16 credits. Based on "Demand" in order words the richest photographers can afford the good bids while the poor photographers have to continue to place bids under 6 credits. Mean while these bids that can cost up to $27 are verified. I've paid for gigs that ended up being phone scams. This company is a joke and is a scab on the photography industry.

These businesses aren't paying for advertising, they are paying for leads. It's unfair of you to have people sending you quotes (that they have to pay to send you) if you have no intention of using the service or patronizing the business. You are the type of consumer that everyone hates:(
