Your book is how we found our fence company, and I was very happy. I have saved my copy so that I can use it for my upcoming projects.
I can tell a lot of work goes into making this book. When I go online, I can find 50,000 plumbers, and I can't tell which ones are better than others. Best Pick Reports is quality over quantity; the companies in it are solid.
I absolutely think Best Pick Reports is a good reference tool. I left the book for the people who purchased our home and said, 'This is a good resource,' since they're new. We had very good luck with the contractors from there.
I like Best Pick Reports because the contractors are organized by area, and I like calling people in my own area. I have definitely been pleased with your book.
I used one of the people you recommended for paving. And I probably wouldn't have reached out to them if it weren't for your report; I'm very happy. I appreciate the help Best Pick Reports gives me.
That's where I started calling my people from. It's been very helpful, and I like the comments from other folks. If it's me, and I'm looking for a contractor, I want one that I know has been in this area for a while. These companies will be here if I need to call them down the road. That's a benefit with your book that makes me feel comfortable.
Our plumber is out of Best Pick Reports, which we received shortly after we moved here from New York. We didn't know any of our neighbors yet, and things were going wrong at our house. Calling a contractor can be a lot like a crapshoot; you just cross your fingers. But with Best Pick Reports, I read the reviews, and I know who to call.
The company I hired from the book was excellent, so I'll always use that book when I need services. I trust Best Pick Reports' judgment.
It is very good to have your book. I selected my garage door company by using Best Pick Reports as a reference, and I made the right choice.
We really like using this book. One of my coworkers had asked about getting the book too. We also use Best Pick Reports online. I have it saved as a favorite on my Google account.
We definitely keep our copy of Best Pick Reports. We've pulled the book out when we needed things done. I feel it's helpful. It's a place to find what we're looking for.
I love this book; I get all of my workers out of it. Whenever I have a home problem, I go to Best Pick Reports first. I didn't use the book to find a lawn service, and I've regretted it.
I got my contractor's name out of Best Pick Reports. I'm very pleased. I would use it over and over again. I love that book; it was very helpful.
This book is awesome. It saved me the day that I had an emergency and needed to find someone quickly. I love it. It showed up in the nick of time.
I think Best Pick Reports is great. It was really nice to have a list of possible providers. We're in a new home, and it's nice to have this resource.
I'm the president of our HOA, and Best Pick Reports is great. Now when one of my neighbors calls me and says, 'Hey, I've got this problem,' I can actually look in that book and say, 'These people are recommended.' It's great.
When I did my first run-through for HVAC work, I called everybody that was in the book and dealt exclusively with those folks. It's a nice way to cut through all the garbage and get a nice batch of people to start with.
Everything's good about Best Pick Reports. You had good ratings in there and good feedback from people that've used the companies. It gives me a better idea of who to pick based on those past experiences. And that's the best way to find a company: by referral and from someone who's done research on them.
I think the book's marvelous. That's how we found one company, and I intend on using them again. I requested an extra copy for somebody else because I thought it was quite informative. I'm looking forward to using the book.
I've read my copy pretty much from front to back. It was extremely helpful. I appreciated the explanations of things you need to be doing on an annual basis or semi-annual basis for your home because some of the work we'd never gotten done.
