Normally, this space would have my reviews from Thumbtack.com. However the change in Thumbtack’s business model has forced me to delete my account, thus making my reviews inaccessible.
Thumbtack.com used to be a valuable resource for booking private events such as weddings, corporate events, etc. I only paid a fee when I decided to bid on an available job, and each bid only cost a few dollars. Thumbtack.com decided to start charging exorbitant fees for only communicating with a potential customer; charging up to $75 just to send you an email (to which you may not even respond), and now charges just to show me “leads” that I might be interested in. Just one lead can cost me literally hundreds of dollars, and it might not even fit in my current calendar.
After lodging my complaints with Thumbtack.com, I deleted my account and have no desire – nor need – to do business with this company.
I had many 5-star reviews on Thumbtack.com. Consider this is my zero-star review of them…
