Fully vetting each Best Pick company is something we take a lot of pride in. We know you trust our recommendations, and we work hard to ensure that our Certified Best Picks truly are the best of the best.
Best Pick Reports relies on consumer feedback and due diligence to determine a company’s qualification status. We develop a qualification rating based on either a) the company’s past three years of Google reviews or b) our survey data on the company spanning the last three years.
Yes, we verify that all companies hold general liability insurance and workers’ compensation insurance when required by the state. We also verify that companies carry proper trade licenses.
Due to the rigorous nature of our research process, many companies do not qualify. It is also possible for a company to lose its Best Pick status if it fails to meet our standards at any point.
For each Best Pick Reports publication, we conduct independent consumer satisfaction surveys every year with homeowners who had firsthand experience with home service providers. If needed, we also analyze Google reviews.
We do not accept opt-in reviews as part of our research. Our company qualification and research process is conducted in-house to ensure that we get an unbiased and randomly sampled understanding of a company’s performance.
