There are so many of us pros that have seen a loss in customers. Nearly each response on all the forums is negative. I don't quite understand how the "hard" part is over. Lot's of undefined "handyman" requests, far to expensive fees for bidding on an 85 dollar job (8.66) and generally most of us a weathering the storm. In stark reality to some of the new changes, TT should really be paying us pros money to respond to requests that have 3 pros already contacted. I mean really? What do you expect us to do- pay 8.66 to respond to a customer that has already responded to 3-5 pros? TT made to many changes to quick. Over-internet-engineering. Try one change for 6 months instead. Lee

I've noticed a change and not for the better. Far to many "handyman" requests that specify 2 hours work or like that. As far as my group goes, appliance repair, all the local jobs have disappeared in favor of heavy Seattle area where traffic is a nigthmare. Thus far, I prefer the older system where what the customer wants if VERY difinitve and not so speculative such as "handyman" services that are all over the board. I wish to bid on jobs where I can take traffic, EXACTLY what I am asked to do into consideration and so far, the vague, "baseboard" or "living room door installation" is far, far to vague. It takes to much into consideration like tools to take, ladders, and what material will I need. Even the older system of pay-for-bid was better.
