Dont TRUST thumbtack to follow your lead and travel specifications.. They Send u customers from 5 states away and call it a LEAD... What a joke. I have emails stating most jobs are between 3 and $8 and no lead will ever be over $24.. Then they send me leads and what me to pay $78.05!!!!!!! DONT TRUST THEM!!!!

“New Platform Terrible!! Price per lead skyrocketed, no longer matters if lead never replies!!”

Thumbtack changed their platform in November of 2018, Their price per lead skyrocketed for $3-8 per lead to $15-50. They no longer sent out auto quotes and they no longer gave u credit if a lead didnt reply within 48 hours. Now u paid no matter if a lead responded or not. didnt matter if u never got a valid phone number or address. they charged u for every single person who view your profile or asked a question. even with no info to give an estimate. The site was much better than home advisor when i joined in 2017, but they refuse to refund me for 2 leads that are both out of my requested area and out of my scope of work. I am also not licensed in the other county and it was 20 miles out of my requested travel area. STILL they would not refund my money. If there is a lawsuit I want to be a part of it.
