Hi, @RASJLLC. You were given the right information from our customer support regarding this situation. In order for your license to be verified on your account for General Contracting jobs, you need to obtain one of these six licenses; Certified Building Contractor, Certified General Contractor, Certified Residential Contractor, Registered Building Contractor, Registered General Contractor, or Registered Residential Contractor. If you have any questions regarding this or want to talk about this further, send me a private message. I'm happy to clarify!
My license is a specialty trade license C-20 Warm air heating and ventialtion. This is the one and the only license i need to practice my HVAC business in the state of CA. I have no clue what all of these Certifications are you are refering to have to do with state licenses. Its quite simple to find my license information, it is public record on Californias Contractors State License Board webpage. Here is a DIRECT LINK https://www2.cslb.ca.gov/onlineservices/CheckLicenseII/LicenseDetail.aspx?LicNum=1041120 Here you can find our license info, our bonding, workers comp, listed officers, etc etc.
I have tried multiple times to get my license verified on my profile, I've done live chat, email, even called in. I've sent copies of my license certificate, I've sent direct links to my state license board web page listing. I don't know what else to do besides just include my license number in my busisness name so my customers can see that I am in fact licensed.
Hello @FiveStarSvcCo I took a look back at your previous interactions with support. In order for your license to be verified your Thumbtack profile name should completely match the name associated to the license. The License Data Base Result shows a different COMPLETE FULL name which does not match the name on the profile. Unfortunately, this does not fit the requirement and we cannot tag it as valid unless the conditions above were met.
@Angela And now as I 'view competition', and 'view all electricians as customer'...I find there are 'handyman' people competing against licensed plumber and electricians!! I can't believe TT allows this, after the rigorous vetting to provide my licenses, insurance, background check, etc. In MA, it's illegal to install plumbing or electrical for compensation without a license.
I can't believe this is being allowed.
@AutumnElectric We expect each professional to determine what licenses are necessary and follow their local, state and federal laws. Of course, if you or any customer find something suspicious, we want to know about it. I see that you and @Kameron are already having a conversation about this, so know that you are being heard. If you have any further questions for him or for me, feel free to reach out. We're always happy to help!
advising them isn't enough, TT shouldn't let them operate under the color of being a 'professional' when they're clearly not. When a house gets flooded from shoddy plumbing work, or a fire from inept electrical work, will TT's $1M guarantee pay off....because the homeowner's home insurance sure won't!!
@AutumnElectric I completely agree with you on that one. As a Life Coach, I find the same issue. TT doesn't bother to vet to make sure the Coach has taken training or schooling of any kind, so anybody can say they're a Coach and send quotes. Bottom line for me is that this could be a great service that helps both the Pro and the potential customer. I really believe TT could fix this, and I hope they do before they lose their Pros.
