Exactly Tina ! I've complained to the Mods and TT about my competition, who advertise themselves as 'handyman' on TT, or only hold an electrical license in MA yet are quoting work in NH. TT replys with 'it's up to the client to do their due diligence regarding licensing'.
In other words, we'll take their money, but the actual hiring responsibility is on the client. Reply from TT below:

I'm new on Thumbtack and I have a real difficulty in bidding a job without seeing. Some of your clients just say 2000sq home for painting or 2 bedrooms for painting... how in the world people bid in those jobs without knowing the size, the shape if it has alligatored/flaking or even led paint? please, can someone educate me in that?
