'List' of Angie Hicks '95 Expanding to Include Classic Cars
November 8, 2009
November 8, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — "We've heard feedback from our members that this is an area of interest for them," Angie's List co-founder Angie Hicks says of her company's move to begin collecting reviews on businesses that provide services for classic cars. "Not only is it an expensive investment, but it's also an emotional investment," Hicks, a 1995 graduate of DePauw University, adds. "It's really important for them to get reliable information for the service providers they're hiring."
The Indianapolis Star's Daniel Lee writes, "Angie's List car-buff customers will be able to search more than 100 categories, including painting, plating, polishing, wiring and welding, according to the company ... Angie's List (angieslist.com) allows its 1 million-plus members nationwide to submit and read reviews on an array of services, including plumbers, painters and pediatricians. The company prohibits anonymous reporting. Typically, Angie's List members would view service providers from their own local area. But the new Auto Restoration Services division will have a national focus because people looking to have a classic car restored are likely to search beyond their own city, Hicks said."
