I don't know about Service Magic yet , but here is my review of maintenance companies "Servicecom , American Home Repair etc ". For me the " not to exceed " , service call prices etc have been within my rates All of them that I have used take at least a month to pay , some 60 days . Some have contact numbers to check on unpaid invoices , and some don't . We haven't used a company yet , that we did not have to call about payment of at least one invoice. It is a pain to collect if they don't have a contact number . We have been approached by some companies that want us to sign a contract ,We run from these . Overall these have been successful for us . If we had enough calls from the phonebook , I would probably drop them because of the 30 to 60 days , but for now I would rate them better than we expected . Just take them on a case by case basis , they are definitely not all the same
Service magic simply places Google Adwords ads that are triggered by keywords such as "electrician". The customer is lured to fill in a "request for service" form and Service Magic sells the information submitted on this form to as many dopey contractors as possible.
Just place your own Adwords Ads and cut out the middle man.
A lot of paper work and if you dont get somthing signed that your suppose to they dont have to pay you. Did some work for one of those home warrenty companys u talk about a head ache they pay you for 1 hour and after that u have to call them to get more money for the job.over the phone on the phone with them for a min of 30 min.
