I have hired professionals through Thumbtack before with no issues. Hired a contractor through them for a $20,000 patio job.
Contactor disappeared took my money and Thumbtack says its not their problem. Thumbtack will take this ***'s money allow him to bid on my job, come into my home, take my money and its not their problem he's a thief? I hope no one else will pay for their services if they don't care woo they recommend.
I don't know how anyone who works there can sleep at night! Most unethical company ever.
