Before Tinder and whatever the newest swiping apps out there are, there were the back pages of Craigslist. Cheap services, sometimes “free”, but you never know what you get until it gets there (if it does).
Things Craiglist is good for.
- Garage sales (during the day) (in well lit neighborhoods)
- Free to a good home pets (if they’re actually free) (and you have patience while you figure out why they were free)
- Bargain items (in front of the police station)
Finding a service provider offering a “blockbuster deal” and their word to come into your home with potentially no licensing or insurance and questionable experience, who will probably want cash when it’s done (if it gets done)? I’m good.
Now does that mean you need to hire one of these companies with gigantic advertising overhead? Nah. That leads to a whole other list of questions.
You know that saying you get what you pay for? It’s true.
