Question DetailsAsked on 7/22/2013

Can I search by area rather than business

I recently purchased a vacation home, we are not in the area full time, we joined Angie's List to assist w/finding contractors, etc. but I am wondering if we can search by area (town) rather than specific occupation (get an idea of what businesses are in our area?)

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

I apologize for the confusion. At this time, our search function allows you to search for category, keyword or business name. The best option I can think of would be to search for a particular category and then sort the results by distance to see what companies in that category are closest to you - this would obviously require multiple category searches.

I apologize for the inconvenience - please let me know if I can assist you further!

Hello, this is Kiel from Angie's List. If you regularly are looking for companies that provide service in other cities, you may want to consider adding another chapter to your Angie's List membership. Usually for between $10 to $20, you can add another area to search in, which is convenient for people with homes in other cities or relatives, etc.

You can add a city by using the My Account menu, then clicking Manage My Account (in the upper right when you're logged in to

Thanks so much!

I am thinking I am not asking the question clearly (sorry) I have subscribed to the area that I want to be (in this case, our vacation home location) my question is/was; can I search the area for ALL businesses (like a business directory) rather than typing in Iam looking for a plumber, is there a way I could see all area businesses?
