With the invention of the internet years ago came the ability for consumers to research and find the best service professionals in the city AND the ability to read reviews, good and bad, and determine who is the best in their area for the work they require.
There is now no reason to have anyone but a trusted electrical contractor, or any type of contracted service professional, in your home. There are so many resources available at the touch of a finger that no residential or commercial entity should ever hurry into a decision about who to hire.
In fact, many consumers we have talked to at great length say they are overly cautious, and tent to take to much time, in selecting the right service pro.
There are so many website, and now Apps, available that these people suffer from a “paralysis by analysis” mindset and then don’t act on anything.
One of the favorites among people today is Yelp. There review system is so rigid that you can trust what consumers say on there regarding the services of any business.
On the contrary, an often used but rarely trusted entity today is the Better Business Bureau. We have found their reviews to be reliant on the fact that a business pays a hefty annual fee in order to become a member.
Only after becoming a “member” can they get the “status” that any other reputable company may never get simply due to not paying a fee.
Another great service is Thumbtack. They have an online site and an App that you can access to find trusted home service professionals all over America.
In addition to Thumbtack, there are tons of others like Angie’s List and Home Advisor where you can search and find tons of trusted companies to enter your home and get the job done right.
Bottom line, take the time to visit one of these great resources and find the service that best suits your needs based on your project, their experience and pricing and their most current reviews.
Below are just a few other key players in the home services niche:
We wish you the best of luck!
