Lots of people love Angie’s List, and what isn’t there to love? Maybe a little less love on having to pay to use the website, which can be a make-or-break choice for some users. So, if you don’t want to use Angie’s List, are there any alternatives out there that are free? Of course! And we have a nice list of some of the best Angie’s List alternatives out there.
1. Judy’s Book
We have an article all about the pros and cons between Angie’s List and Judy’s Book and it still continues to be our favorite alternative. Set up very much like Angie’s List, Judy’s Book allows you to find contractors and service professionals in your area as well as look up their current ratings and reviews from fellow customers. Give it a try!
Another great alternative to Angie’s List, ServiceMagic provides all of the same services as Angie’s List and happens to be completely free. All you have to do is create a free account just like if you were creating a profile with Facebook and voila! You have an account on ServiceMagic.
A contractor database that is easily searchable, CalFinder just needs your ZIP code, and from there you can choose what service you need (heating & air, windows, remodeling, and much more). CalFinder will send you a personalized list via email to you, everything being completely free.
InsiderPages has a broader search for more than just services like remodeling or plumbing and includes doctors, dentists, and even beauty salons. Completely free to use, there is one drawback to this alternative for Angie’s List: their website can be a little slow with results. But, it is comprehensive and offers lots of valid info on about everything near you.
