We were hounded for nearly 6 weeks before finally giving into everycontractor.com on January 25, 2008. Brett Wilson really talked a good game. He was so sure that their company would make us money, he went from $999 for the year down to $250.
The setup that they have for submitting your company profile is enough to make you give up right from the get go! It was endless and nearly impossible to pinpoint where you wanted to have your service targeted.
The first lead I rejected because it was not in our service area. They called me about it and said I would need to update my profile so that these leads that we reject are not counted against me! What? It is my choice as to what leads I want & don't want to take.
The next lead was a commercial flooring job. I could not even get the plans from the. I had to pay $90 to have the plans sent FedEx directly from the companies agent. Of course, everycontractor.com had an excuse as to why we could not get the plans.
The next job was another commercial job. We had to submit the bid directly to everycontractor.com. Not knowing how they operate, I emailed them and asked for acknowledgement that they rec'd the bid. No reply! In poking around on their website, I noticed that they had a copy of my estimate online.
The next lead that they sent me was also for a commercial window job. I emailed them and advised that until someone sat down with me an explained exactly how they run their operation, I would not be accepting any additional leads.
I am sure I am going to have a difficult time getting them to refund my money since I am only month into the service, but I can already see that they will not be the company who makes any contractor a "boat load" of money as they put it to me.
I will be contacting the BBB and also my credit card which I used to make the payment to see about getting a charge back done and get my money back. Good luck to everyone out there who was also scammed by a fast talker from everycontractor.com.
