1.800.REPAIRS Pro Provider Network Q&A

Can I decline a project?


Yes. If your schedule or skill set is not a good fit for you and the homeowner, you can decline the job for any reason without penalizing your listing on the network.




Is there a contract required to participate on the network?


No. There is no contract. If you sign up for the Repairs Network you can remove your listing at any time. There is no cost, obligation, or cancellation fee.




I gotta think there is a catch to this, what is it?


There is no catch. 1.800.REPAIRS is connecting your local hardware store and Pros like you to a nationwide network that allows you to work directly with the homeowner, not some huge referral company that is only interested in generating lead fees. You'll also participate in the most memorable hardware store phone number in the industry. A phone number that you've likely already have comitted to memory.




The 7% referral fee can add up on a larger job, is their a maximum fee?


If you land a larger job, no worries. The referral fee is capped at $400. You'll never pay more than that.




Will I get paid directly by the homeowner?


Yes! How's that for different? You do the work and you get paid directly by the homeowner. You simply build in the 7% referral fee into your estimate. No waiting for your payment from a payment portal or large corporation to issue your payment for services.




Why should I join?


If you're not convinced already, statistically, every homeowner in America spends approximately $1,056 on home repairs and services every year, which doesn’t include renovations. With 1.800.REPAIRS you’ll start your journey to capitalizing on this segment of the market. And, with no monthly cost or fees to join, you have nothing to lose – ever.




Do I get to set my own price?


Yep, you set your own cost for the job. There are no pre-set guidelines or job cost specifications. Your total cost is set between you and the homeowner. That's it. No middle-man or sneaky fees.




Really? No competition for leads?


Really. Most online referral companies send out leads to three or four Pros at one time, all competing for the same job with the customer. That's just plain nuts to us! Probably you too! While you may compete with your peers to capture the project with the homeowner, you won't compete for the lead. It's the customer's choice if they wish to contact mutiple providers, but you'll never compete, or pay, for a lead that doesn't generate revenue.




Can customers specifically request my services online?


Yes! When you join the network you’ll appear on the consumer 1.800.REPAIRS Pro e-Directory provided that homeowner's zip code and type of project they are seeking is a match. Customer’s will be able to request your services through the automated portal to create the job request. Your local participating hardware store will forward the job request directly to you.
