Why We Chose It: TaskRabbit’s mobile app connects users in need of services with skilled workers available to do them, conveniently offering a variety of services at multiple price points.
Founded in Boston and available nationwide, TaskRabbit is an app and online platform that connects clients with specialists in their area for any number of tasks. While the options span far beyond what a handyman might cover (grocery shopping, yard work, and more can be ordered through the platform), its handyman services can handle everything from installing a new air conditioning unit to assembling furniture.
To schedule a job, use the app to select the task you need to be completed, and then choose from a list of qualified “taskers” based on price point, skills offered, and user reviews. Once you’ve chosen someone, select a time that works for you: Same-day appointments are commonly available. Handyman service rates will very depending on the location, the type of task, and other factors. All taskers are screened with identity and criminal background checks.
Every part of your transaction happens within the app, including correspondence, payment, tipping, and leaving a review. The company’s customer service is available via live chat, phone, or messaging Monday through Saturday, and users praise the app’s easy-to-use interface, helpful customer associates, and transparent pricing.
