I did my homework before hiring one of the local five-star assembly professionals on Thumbtack. I got bids from several pros who had been hired more times on Thumbtack, but I also chased down a link to Jason's website which showed that he has been hired a lot of times as well. On his site, I saw a lot of photos from other projects he had done around the Charlotte area. Jason was crisp in his communications both before and after I hired him. We just moved to the area a few days ago, didn't know anyone, and had a slew of stuff that we ordered online coming for assembly. I asked Jason to put together an outdoor patio set. A few hours before he arrived, four indoor barstools arrived and he was willing to stay late to help put them together. Jason even helped me with a table that I didn't finish putting together the night before because my fingers got "allen wrench fatigue." When he learned that we new to the city, Jason also shared his local knowledge about things to do in the community. Not only do we have a new go-to guy for assembly (we've already discussed another project) but we have a connection in our new town and we find both valuable. Well done, Jason!
