When a customer looks at your profile, they’re not just wondering whether you can do their job. They want to know that you’ll show up and follow through.
That’s why adding a background check to your profile is so important. The customers who hire you on Thumbtack are usually trusting you with more than just a project. They’re trusting you with something deeply personal: their home, their wedding, their dog, their health. A completed background check lets them know that they’re in good hands.
The background check is one of the first things customers might see on your profile. It shows up right alongside other details like whether you’re a Top Pro, how many times you’ve been hired and whether or not you have verified business insurance.
Thumbtack makes it easy to get a background check through an accredited provider called Checkr. All you have to do is go into your profile settings, click on Credentials and follow the steps to get a verified background check. Most people hear back within a couple of weeks.
Here’s where to learn more about how Thumbtack can help you get a background check.
