Non-Verified Companies

Just because a company isn't verified or have our verified seal on their profile doesn't mean their not still good companies.
Not all companies will be able to pass our verification process. Failure to pass will not always be because they don't have a license, insurance, testimonials or unable to pass a background check. In fact many will not pass because they simply don't have the staff or procedures in place to help keep the flow of customer communication flowing or insure that contracts are being use and for these reason alone a company will not pass our verification. However if you hire any company from our list and have any questions, issues, concerns or simply just need a second unbiased opinion on the process, products or procedures we will still be glad to assist in any way possible BUT a financial compensation WILL NOT BE AVALIABLE for any unresolved issues on behalf of the disputed company by MyContractorList.com
