Careful and thorough service
Movers Joe and Rueben arrive on time to move a number of mature house plants from one home to another. The plants were various sizes and 6 of them were very large (4ft wide, 6 ft tall or more and heavy.
They moved everything in a regular truck, not an enclosed moving vehicle and were prepared with wrapping paper, cords, boxes and tape. First they used the boxes to fit around the base of each plant then wrapped each plant completely with wrapping paper and tape. This step took about an hour and protected the plants during the drive. It took about an hour to wrap the plants with paper and tape. They loaded the plants to the bed of the truck then secured them with cords.
When they reached the destination, they offloaded the plants and removed the wrapping. The plants were in the same condition as they were when picked up, had all their leaves, no torn or damaged branches.
Joe and Rueben did a great job, were helpful throughout the packing and moving and were very courteous. Best of all, they took all the wrappings with them - I didn’t have to deal with discarding the wrapping.
I would recommend 1Stop Movers, Joe and Rueben in particular to my family and friends.

No longer gives quotes. Rates too high.
The concept of this app is a great idea for a small business owner such as myself. It gives me a chance to market my counseling business to people in need of those particular services. I initially signed up for instant match in which the customer receives an immediate response when they put in a request. BAD IDEA!!!! Thumbtack did not give me an accurate idea of just how much these rates would cost and I ended up being charged over $40 in less than a week. I then turned off instant match and would send quotes only to the customers I chose and was told just how much I would be charged for the quote. The rates varied anywhere from $1-$12 and occasionally I was given the opportunity to quote for free. This was very reasonable although it was a gamble because the majority of the time, the customers would not respond to my quote.
I recently received notice that Thumbtack has changed their policy that I would no longer be charged unless the customer responded to my quote. This seemed like a great idea! I could still pick the customers I wanted to quote but I no longer had to worry about spending money on customers who were no longer interested in counseling. I assumed the rates were about the same as they were before. Boy, was I wrong! I was charged $23 for my quote! That is way more money than I am willing to spend for someone whose business I may not even get! I will no longer be using Thumbtack for marketing under these new rates.

Feedback helps us a ton and we'd love to hear your suggestions about this. Go ahead and send your thoughts directly to our Product Team here: https://help.thumbtack.com/suggestions.
I always find difficulties to get job done in a right way so I was trying hard to ensure hiring a real professional using your App. It worked so well that now this guy became my main contact of the job done. Your App works fine but one suggestion is to let user see what they said while starting new project. For example, if I said 4 rooms or 5 rooms with 3 flights of stairs while starting new project then I should be able to see. In my case, I have provided details for the cleaning to be done and got price quotation based on it but then this guy increased his price and I never had proof that I have included my project details when a new project for the carpet cleaning was created. Anyways, your App works great to connect dots between professionals and seekers. Just ensure you don’t allow someone without background check to get your App and reputability ruin over the period of your success. Keep it tight and get some big fruits of ROI.
