Angie's List is a scam. After your company gets added they contact you and tell you that your company has been added and reviewed. If you'd like to have an enhanced listing you can pay us for that. They specifically outlined to one of my vendors that what they...

Reviews on tradesmen are many times 4-5 Years old and often the company is long gone. Very unreliable.

Avoid Angi. We tried them a second time as a vendor, and our second experience was worst from the first. Poor customer service/support. They were unable to properly set up our company for the correct services we do and do not do. The were unable to rectify an issue of...

I'm a Upset Customer, Your Pro Concrete Guy," Stole My MONEY!

I went to your company (Angi's List) to find an honest, yet quality professional Concrete company to pour and lay my driveway with concrete. Before I could get a good look at the companies that your company had emailed me my phone rang and Mr. Charles Chappell of Cee's Concrete, Masonry, Demolition & Remodeling was on the other end of the line asking me what kind of work that I wanted done. He came to my house that night, telling me that he was the perfect guy to do my driveway and that he was a "Preacher and that he wouldn't do me wrong". Well, after telling me that he would be at my house to form and scrape and pour my driveway on 3 different dates, he always had excuses for not showing up. So I called him to cancel the contract. That was 3 weeks ago, and even after he told me last week (Monday 4/12/2021) that he sent me my money FED EX and that I would have to sign for it. I said fine. I just wanted my money back. Well, I still have not got my money that I had paid him to do the job that we had contracted for. He called me again, to tell me that, he couldn't get me my money until this next Thursday (4/22/2021). Well, I'm going to the Better Business Bureau and then to a lawyer. STEALING is a crime in this country and to call himself a "Preacher", that say's a lot about his character, and it also says a lot about this company (Angi's List) and if you assist and promote Mr. Charles Chappell to STEAL from your clients....And if you continue to support this man and his company, then I will be reporting you (Angi's List) to the Better Business Bureau as well. This man is not to be trusted, he had already stated to me that he was having legal problems, which was another reason that I had changed my mind about him and his company doing the job. He is very loud and unprofessional and has screamed at me 8 different times over the phone. I've never in my whole life of 50 some years had someone to scream at me during a simple conversation.

User's recommendation: Don't talk to this man, he will say anything to get your money.

Why in the world will give you someone the full amount before they start the job. You only give half or 33% for labor upfront.

Home Advisor should DROP ANGIE

Home Advisor Should DROP ANGIE LIST.ALL ANGIE LIST WANTS IS MONEY, and they don't event care if the job gets done the run the price up by charging the contractor before he even gets the job, and they charge the customer a fee before they even get an estimate because the contractor has to pass the cost on to the price of The job. I CANCELED my Angie's List and went Home Advisor Now she has come over her with her Lousy Service!

User's recommendation: Drop Angie’s List.

Money Dedicted from checking account in advance; and no technician showed up

A confusing trio of contacts merged in this communication. I thought I booked some household electrical repairs through Angie's List. Turns out (they say) the booking was through HomeAdvisor (powered by Angi) &;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; the contractor was booked by HANDY. Although the electrician called the day before the service was to be done, she never showed up the next day nor did she call to explain the "no show." Was "pissed" because major $$ had been deducted from MY account. Had to call and ask for refund. Still waitFuture ing for $$$

Vendor Complaint

Used Angie's for the first time 3 years ago and paid for the "repairs" that were done. One year later the same problem happened again and was "resolved" for free. A year later (2021) the same problem reoccurred and I was informed, my warranty had expired a week prior to my call for the same problem.To say I am disappointed and annoyed would be an understatement. This time to resolve the same issue the cost was $150. I never realized my job was a "training " project for their technicians.................beware.

User's recommendation: Be wary of any of these franchised contractors.

Paid them hundreds of dollars with little to no jobs in my area of expertise

The high pressure phone call that sounded so wonderful was out of the blue. The "verbal promises" were so impressive, he said I would be getting jobs at the rate of $24,000/month (approximately). At some point I agreed to the $300 that I had to pay right then. So no, I did not see anything written down. I did not realize until I got an email that it was for $300/month for a year with an automatic renewal. I was just hearing all his fantastic promises about all the work I would be getting. The emails were very clear about what I owed but there was no mention about all the work I would be getting. About all the reviews, I was told later that the more reviews I had the better, he said get my friends and family to help write me reviews. So when you see a company with 100 reviews does not mean they did 100 real jobs. And the bad reviews can be deleted. I have only had one job request that fit my abilities. I have attached the email sent, not until I received it did I realize I signed up for a year contract. Thank you for listening and God Bless, Brent Cowles Attachments area

User's recommendation: Do not use Angie's List, they take a lot of money and send you not offers that your company can use. And you cannot get any response from them. It's a scam!!

When I was placing an order, I was provided with a quote: time and price. Then it was a question: "Do you need help with buying materials?". I said yes and my quote was increased for 1 hour/$139. When contractor was actually doing the job, he bought the materials...

To recover my antique sofa, I was looking for an upholsterer 'near me' on the web, and Angie's List came up with the name of a boat repair, upholsterer, etc., and this company was the only name provided. So I reached out to the owner, Rene Humnell (SP). When he called...

ANGIE LIST EXPIRENCES

I HAVE USED ANGIE LIST FOR YEARS AND I ONLY USE IT TO GET NAMES OF PEOPLE CLOSE TO OUR LOCATION. I WILL LOOK AT ANY BAD REVIEWS AS THOSE MUST BE VALID IF SOMEONE ACTUALLY TOOK TIME TO POST. HOWEVER THE POSITIVES ARE NOT ALWAYS ACURATE. WE HAD A VERY BAD EXPERIENCE WITH AN ELECTRICIAN AND HE HAD AN A REVIEW.

Spam Calls

Apparently, "free listing" means that you don't have to pay in money but in receiving annoying phone calls. Signed up for the free listing. Shortly after I received a phone call saying they were missing information. The conversation quickly evolved into essentially "You need to pay us money, if you don't then you don't know what you are doing, you are a horrible person, and your business will fail."

User's recommendation: Avoid if possible.

Defamation

Angies list allows anyone to post a review, regardless if they use Angies list or not, they post reviews with out any research of the person's posting the reviews. These reviews can say anything true or not with out any retribution. I have tried to have these fraudulent reviews removed, but they will not remove them.Run away

You’re pathetic use of cancel culture by boycotting Fox news programs.

I hope you will lose a lot of supporters of your business For dropping Fox News specifically Tucker Carlsons show. I also hope that your male and female pro handy workers stop using Angies list will leave your corporate umbrella for other more reasonable handy pro companies. Cancel culture doesnt work!!! you better get a clue on how to advertise yourself properly without being political. I will also pass this song to all of my neighbors so that they know how small minded your corporation is!

User's recommendation: Never any corporation dumb enough to follow politics for the reason for advertising needs to be canceled if they’re not smart enough to not use cancel culture motives.

I am appalled you are charging a provider Shamrock chimney sweep $52.96 for a referral I never gave you permission to provide. I will never use Angie's list again.

All complaints on your website are justified I am sure. Diane Massachusetts
