Pro-Referral ( formerly Redbeacon) is owned by Home Depot. Basically they send me work in exchange for me purchasing tools and supplies at Home Depot instead of the other big-box hardware stores.
About our clientele:
Given the name of this website, one might assume the clients are; mechanically challenged, two left-thumbed fools
with severe tool allergies.
Far from it.
Our clients include; successful competent people with six and seven figure incomes, U. of C. students in Hyde Park,
Northwestern students in Evanston.
They all know the value of RTA furniture,
and the value of their own time.
Yes, they could assemble the furniture themselves,
and do a good job.
But time is valuable, so they pay me,
because they have more important things to do.
Ready To Assemble (RTA) Furniture and other home products (Storage sheds, swing sets, weight machines, rowing machines, cardio machines, etc) are our specialty.
Due to customer demand, we now offer hanging services; (stuff, not people); Pictures, Mirrors, TV's, Assorted Sculptures, Storage Racks, Bulletin Boards, etc. No charge for small hooks, or adding wire to new frames, or replacing wire on very old frames.
Proof of insurance, certificate of insurance,
or being ADDITIONAL NAMED INSURED: ...

Hausman Kunkel, Inc. out of Roselle, IL.

A picture is worth a thousand words.
Would a thousand pictures be worth a crashed computer?
In any case, I have consolidated photographs onto my
YouTube channel Playlist.
There are a handful of short videos, most shorter than five minutes.
Giving Back: I support the
Niles Township Food Pantry
( a.k.a. Skokie Food Pantry)
I have had to move my business away from small jobs. However, over the last three years, I have done 25 small jobs for total donations of:
$2,466 to the NTFP.
Some of my clients have employers who offer matching donations to legitimate charities, and have utilized that benefit to contribute to the NTFP.
