My thoughts on using Thumbtack and why I do not recommend it.
There is a service you may not have heard of called Thumbtack that is used for hiring artists, businesses etc for various projects including Wedding Planning. What you may not realize is that the artists and photographers for example have to pay just to be able to send you a quote. Even if you don’t hire us we still lose money. There is also no way we can vet or contact the client if we have questions. The client may decide to hire you for a large job then when you meet them they change it and we have no control ot protections against that. While some requests may be legitimate many are not and not only are we the artists getting ripped off but you the consumer may also be as well because anyone can put a listing on there. So please if you want to use the service at least keep in mind that every quote you view costs us a lot of money.
