  • If you’re heading off to college, establishing an organizational method early will really streamline your studies.  We can help you with that.
  • Did you go a little too far at the back to school sales and need to scale back?  A Tasker can return items if you’re having second thoughts.
  • If you’re loving all your new things, we can donate unwanted used items for you.

TaskRabbit is here to help you get the school year started on the right foot.  How can we assist you today?

TASK OF THE WEEK – CROSS COUNTRY CARE PACKAGE

When your loved one isn’t feeling well, you want to do everything you can to make them feel better.  But if they’re far away, it can be difficult to make your presence and support felt.

Victoria’s brother had his wisdom teeth removed and he was in a world of hurt.  With his family nearly 3,000 miles away in New York, it was just him and his aching jaw in the Bay Area.  Of course, Victoria wanted to find a way to make her brother feel better.  Enter TaskRabbit!  Tasker Sara T. did the leg work in the Bay and picked up all the special items on Victoria’s list.  Sara delivered the customized care package of soft foods, treats, and balloons within 24hrs of booking. “It totally made his day,” Vanessa told us.

TASK OF THE WEEK: TEACHER ON THE MOVE

Here at TaskRabbit, we are big fans of education.  After all, the children are our future.  But we also love to help our teachers out when we can.

When one teacher moved from St. Louis to Chicago this summer, she wasn’t just moving house – she was moving classrooms as well.

After 5 years of teaching Elementary and Special Education in St. Louis, our Client, Kristen, found that she’d built up a vast collection of personal teaching items and tools.  She had family help to move these hundreds of books, educational games, school supplies, and more from St. Louis to Chicago, but she knew she needed extra help to get it all into her new classroom.

That’s where TaskRabbit comes in. With dolly in hand, Tasker Steve M. made the process easy for the Client.  He coordinated the unload, and efficiently carried all the items up the several flights of stairs well within the agreed upon time.

Here’s to Kristen and all the hard-working educators, students, and parents out there.  TaskRabbit hopes we can help you prep for a great start this school year.

Kristen tells us that Steve, “exceeded [her] expectations!”  How can we exceed yours?
