EveryContractor - They're not that bad...so far.
I signed up with Every Contractor about 3 months ago as a "Preferred Contractor." It cost me 3 thousand but they guaranteed that I would win at least 50 thousand dollars in jobs.When they first pitched me I found the whole thing a little hard to believe.
But, I had them forward me a copy of the contract and it stated that if they did not generate at least 50 thousand in contracted work that I could request a refund. The catch is that they have 12 months in which to give you the work.
I was in the program for 2 full months and had not received one lead. And then I received a call from them and they said the had a job that matched my business profile. They asked if I wanted to accept the job, I said yes, and they put the customer on the phone with me within a few minutes.
Long story short, I met the customer, gave her my estimate (remodel), and then heard nothing for 3 days.
When I called Every Contractor they had me fax then a copy of the estimate. 3 more days went by and I heard nothing. Then I got a call from Every Contractor stating that the customer was ready to move forward. I completed the job and was paid a little of 15 thousand.
So, not quite 50 thousand but in all fairness they still have 9 months to go.
I am optimistic and will post here again with more comments.
