Does anyone use this service and does it work for you. I'm considering trying it. Are there any other sites you like better?

I think the fee was something like $50 per month. If I see one listing for just electrical work in the whole state it it was a busy month. sure can't see wasting that kind of money. The are some jobs that would require electrical work but they are asking for a GC for the job.

90% of their projects are public works projects such as schools, power plants and bridges. These jobs and others are a matter of public record, but Bid Clerk takes them and acts as if they somehow are the exclusive source of this information. Not only are these jobs public knowledge, jobs such as wiring a $10,000,000 sewage treatment plant are beyond the capability of most ECs.

All these "lead service" operations are nothing more tham leaches that attach themselves to contractors.
