Fun Facts

The first provider I hired was…
A bicycle repair shop. I couldn’t wait to get back on two wheels — and I didn’t have to — pedal to the metal.
If I were a service provider, I'd be a…
Pet store owner. I love animals. In case that wasn’t obvious. From the pet store answer.
Something I learned while researching a story…
Don’t hesitate to seek a second opinion, whether you’re unsure about a medical procedure or the quote seems high for emergency plumbing repairs.
The worst service provider experience I've ever had was…
Before joining, I paid out the nose for a plumber who unclogged a drain in my basement. It worked, but it emptied my wallet, too.
The best service providers I've found were…
Doctors I’ve checked after my family and I received referrals. Other members’ positive experiences tended to reflect our own.
