Time is Money! It’s no more a saying! Rather, the reality of our life.

There is always a long to-do list with us for our pending routine tasks. Additionally, we have extra unplanned activities each day that need our attention. In order to accomplish each task on time, we all require smart time management. It simply means: don’t spend your time on the tasks that can be done with virtual interaction.

Well! If you are using your smartphone, smartwatch, tablet or other hi-tech gadgets to simplify your day-to-day life, you are part of this amazing digital space.

This time we are going to discuss something on the same line that I have personally experienced some time back.

A few months ago, I moved to my new home in the suburbs of Santa Clara. However, it was quite an old-fashioned neighbourhood. So, I needed to renovate my home as per my expectations. I had thought to change the entire interior and exterior along with the furniture. But, on the new location, I was facing difficulties to identify good home service providers nearby my home area.

I discussed the situation with my colleague. He immediately suggested to me it is very simple to find highly skilled local professionals through a home service provider app. He assured me I could have a list of local professionals who offer various home services.

I agreed with him, but the reliability and work quality of local professionals for home services were my key concern. This was the reason I felt hesitant towards this new approach.

(I know it seems silly, but I think everyone who is trying such things for the first time must face such nervousness.)

Later on, I shared my concerns with him, and he simply took my phone and downloaded this very popular home service provider app named TaskRabbit.

Larger Marketplace

Home service provider apps offer a list of local professionals belong from a wide range of service categories such as electrician, plumber, painter, carpenter, house cleaning, pest control, ruffing and gutters, movers and packers, appliance repair, flooring, interior and exterior designers, glossary delivery, junk removal, and much more.

Through the example of TaskRabbit, he explained to me how to pick my services and move ahead for local professional professionals hiring. It is a broad marketplace in the true sense where anyone can buy and sell home services. Moreover, the buyers can have more options while selecting the professionals for a particular service.

Assured Work Quality

Before making a hiring decision, customers can read out the reviews posted for selected professionals. Make sure the reviews must be posted by genuine end users. It should not be the fake one. The app also contains the profile, skills, work experience of the professionals. This information also helps customers in getting a clear idea about the work quality delivered by the local professional.

If we take the example of TaskRabbit, they assured that all of their tasks are fully insured up to $1M. Before considering any local professionals for home services, TaskRabbit checks the background of local professionals. They practice careful screening and interviewing of the local professionals to ensure that the end-users have the best (and safest) experience getting your tasks done.

Pricing Decision

While selecting a particular professional, customers can view his profile, skills, along with their charges. The rate can be per hour or for the whole task. Make a quick comparison amongst your shortlisted professionals in terms of price and quality. It will help you in recognizing who is providing best quality work at affordable prices.

TaskRabbit is offering the same facility to its customers. They can compare the prices of all professionals and make a decision to work with the most reasonable one.

Instant Hiring

Exclusion of face-to-face meeting with each professional. Home services apps allow consumers to have an end-to-end conversation with the local professionals through personal chat or email or phone calls as per their convenient time. Both the parties can discuss the work, negotiate on pricing and close the deal using the app only. What a time-saving feature!

TaskRabbit allows customers to pick the professionals, share the work requirements, discuss the cost and hire the professional quickly via personal communication. Check out the skills, rates and reviews of each shortlisted local professional and go with the best suitable one.

We had a tour of entire TaskRabbit app that was quite convincing. Ultimately, I used the same app and moved ahead with my home renovation plan. I was able to get connected with all the local professionals for my required hoe services. Out of my expectation, I had my dream home ready within the short time duration of three months.

Honestly speaking, it was a hassle free and relaxing experience to work with local professionals listed in a home service provider app like TaskRabbit. In fact, what I felt is they are more responsible towards their work. Apps like these and many others are revolutionizing the local professional service industry and we just can’t stop talking about it!
