I’ve been with Thumbtack for about 6 years now, but at the prices being charged for bids, I doubt I’ll stay. When I started originally you could pay $3 or so for a bid...now the same bid can be astronomical depending on what your San Francisco cost of living is. The pricing should be reduced to let the bidders have a stand at winning the bids, not just to make you money. When a bidder has to add the cost of a $12 bid to a ceiling fan install, and they live in certain areas of the country, they just won’t win the job because you price yourself out after adding the cost of the bid to the job...this equals no profit. I haven’t used any bid service from y’all in over two months, and will not use your services until the prices are either reduced, or at least valued based on locality. I’m in the “Top Pro” category, and would like to continue with your services, but not at the current rates and charges.
