After several text messages over a few days, to describe the job and send photos, I made an appointment for an in-person quote for some hauling of some heavy bags of old red rock lava for Sunday, October 30,2016 at 11 am. Todd and his worker came at around 11:35 am after a text that he would be about 1/2 hr late. We agreed on a price and he stuck to it. I offered to pay him a bit more to remove a full trash can and two  old water hoses, and wood debris that I did not think about putting into my original agreement as I thought of it later. He accepted my offer. His time was about 40 minutes, much faster than I expected. His helper also did a small job of tightening the rail support in one particular area for a few dollars more. On his way out he stated that he does handy work as well. We discussed and agreed upon another job which is not hauling, but painting some railing around my porches, cleaning out my gutter, and tightening an/or replacing some screws to the railing support in some places. This job is still in process and I will update this review if I am given the space in Thumbtack, when the job is completed. This job began 10-31-16. So far some painting will be needed to be redone, and the gutter has not been started as of yet.
I would hire Todd again for small hauling similar to what he did for me already. The rating is for hauling, quick service and great attitude for the first job. I tried to upload/show the photos of the bags that he had to haul, but they are stuck in the 'que' on my phone being sent from cell phone to email to upload here. However Todd has the same photos and if he wants to post them it is ok with by me. I had not taken any photos of the 'after' but I can and will send those to Todd as well. This states "Reviews cannot be edited after posting." So I doubt I can add photos later. 11-1-16 .
