Rumor has it, in days of yore there was something known as a “handyman” – one guy who could fix anything in your house.
Sounds easy. Too easy.
Even if we never solve the myth of the handyman, we’re pretty well off with Thumbtack, a resource for local services currently available in every state in America.
Thumbtack’s network covers everything from movers and plumbers to dog walkers and piano tuners. Just answer a set of questions about what you need and within 24 hours the Thumbtack team will email you up to five quotes from local pros who have been thoroughly vetted.
Compare quotes and research the outfits with the site’s verified reviews. You can even contact each business to discuss the nature of the job and make sure you’re comfortable before hiring them.
And for all this, Thumbtack charges you, well, nothing. The service is entirely free to use.
Sounds handy, man.
