Thirty plus years in the insurance industry, acting as the consumer and business owner’s resource connection, and witnessing the dishonest service providers/contractors led me to form Hook Connect in April 2013. Most consumers and business owners trust everyone, even the company who cold-calls or knocks on their door, to provide an honest, fair service in time of need without researching the company first. My four months working for a “rip-off” general contractor opened my eyes. This topic will need to be the subject of a future blog.
Hook Connect researches and qualifies many types of service providers/contractors to be our trusted, honest connections to enable the home and business owner to feel safe with their choice of service providers. We have connections from a mobile auto mechanic to insurance claim damage remediation and repair. Our referral partners can clean your carpets, work on your vehicles, clean your home, waterproof your basement, fix a sinking home due to foundation problems and rid you of the nasty mold damage to name a few.
Hook Connect feels we can make a difference in the lives of others through our trusted service providers. We DO NOT want anyone to EVER experience wasted time or $$ because they hired the wrong company to complete a job.
Have you ever hired a company to do work for you who are fly- by night companies with no insurance and not a registered company in your state? (this video iterates what we mean)
Have you ever hired a dishonest company to do work for you who spent your money along with dozens of others, wasted your time and the job was not completed due to the business closing their doors? Companies such as these will close their doors and either start a new company in the same state or move to a different state to do it again!
