My project was very small--just putting a recessed lighting fixture back in a 14 foot ceiling and changing out some light bulbs. For weeks I couldn't get a handyman or electrician to agree to come out or to call me back. I guess the job was just too unexciting for them? A neighbor suggested I put my project on Thumbtack. GCG responded right away, we set up a time for them to come out, they showed up at said time, and they were in and out in 15 minutes, and super friendly to boot.
I know I'll have larger projects in the future, and GCG is going to get the calls for those.
