At a time where superheroes are idolised on the big screen, we’ve found every-day Batman and Robin’s and they’re ready to help you save you some precious time on TaskRabbit!
TaskRabbit, which launched in London in late 2013, is an online marketplace that busy, stressed out Londoners to outsource the chores they’ve been putting off since before the Millennium – from building flat-pack furniture to cleaning the bathroom and decorating a home – by connecting them to people with the time and skills needed to be able to do the job. No chore is too big or too small. Their most popular tasks are in the handyman services, cleaning, and minor home repairs categories.
The TaskRabbit community is open to anyone looking for an extra hand or looking to put a little extra time back in their day. It provides services both for busy individuals and for businesses looking for additional resources!
Taskers (the work bunnies!) are people from the local community who have skills to offer others – whether these are skills in DIY, minor home repairs, cleaning, gardening, or even calligraphy!
How does TaskRabbit work?
TaskRabbit is available to download for free on iOS and Android, as well as online. Here’s a breakdown if you want the detail of how to hire your own Tasker:
1 – Post a Task! A Client posts a task.
2 – Arrange the details – the price is already set as all Taskers charge a specific hourly rate in the UK, so all you need to arrange is the timings for the Task, which is done via real time messaging. You can peruse Tasker profiles and read their reviews to get a sense of their experience and skill set.
3 – Your Tasker does your Task! If your Tasker pays for anything while doing your Task (like groceries they pick up for you), you can reimburse them through the TaskRabbit site.
4 – Once your Task is complete and you pay your Tasker online, you can rate and review them to indicate your level of satisfaction.
Barefaced was thrilled to have super friendly Tasker Elena come to our Head Quarters for a ‘home clean task’ as we’d recently moved and needed a proper Spring clean. Elena was punctual, really efficient, brought all her own equipment and left our HQ sparkling clean and a smile on our faces as she was so lovely too!
