Helping Londoners Get Things Done
Following an exciting London launch event last night, we’re excited to announce that TaskRabbit.co.uk is now live! Check it out for yourselves and sign up to be one of the first to experience this safe and trusted outsourcing service.
With 50 Taskers extensively vetted, identity-verified and approved in London, TaskRabbit is ready to save your day and help you with your endless list of errands. From handyman tasks, household jobs through to Christmas chores, TaskRabbit alleviates these burdens so you can focus on the things you love – whether it’s time with your family or dining out at your favourite restaurant.

Every day at TaskRabbit, we receive requests from all over the world to bring our marketplace to new cities, but one international city has peaked interest beyond all others. That’s why today, we’re thrilled to finally announce that we’re taking a hop across the Atlantic and bringing TaskRabbit to London.
From Shoreditch to Stoke Newington, Bermondsey to Belsize Park, Kensington to Kentish Town, our British Taskers will be out in force shortly and ready to help time-pressed Londoners tackle their to-do lists.
So whether you’re a busy mum in Hampstead who needs someone to deep clean the house, a commuter who needs help with their Christmas wrapping or a career woman in Clapham who simply needs a handyman to assemble IKEA furniture – busy Londoners will be able to outsource these tasks through TaskRabbit and focus on the important things in life, be it family, friends or even pre-Christmas exercise!
We’ve come a long way from our San Francisco start-up roots. Five years on, and we now have 20,000 vetted and approved Taskers in 19 cities across the US. We’ve been looking at how we can burrow into new cities and now we’re ready to bring TaskRabbit to the Capital.
We’ve noticed over the past 5 years that given half a chance, people do want to pitch in and help each other out, particularly in their own communities. So we have converged all the social, location and mobile know-how we have to create TaskRabbit, an online marketplace that connects busy people with safe, reliable professional who will help them get things done and give them more time to focus on what they love.
So London, we’re coming for you – to be kept up to date, register at: http://www.taskrabbit.co.uk/

Terms and Conditions
It’s been an action-packed few months at TaskRabbit, as we continue our focus on bringing the marketplace to new cities. In August, we opened 5 new TaskRabbit cities and it’s been awesome watching these communities embrace TaskRabbit to help them do what they love.
Today, we’re thrilled to announce some more expansion news: TaskRabbit is now live in Denver, Miami, Phoenix and San Diego, bringing our total geographic footprint to 19 cities across the US!
We’ve been busy training our inaugural TaskRabbits in those cities and, starting today, they are ready to help you with all your tasks! We have brought on more than 500 new TaskRabbits in these cities, bringing the total number of TaskRabbits to over 20,000 across the US.
And the growth doesn’t stop there! TaskPoster growth remains strong, and as noted in August, we are on track to welcome 1.25 million new users in 2013 alone. And, of course, more expansion is on the way! We’re gearing up to bring TaskRabbit to London before the end of the year.
Where should we head next? Be sure to let us know.
We love Halloween here at TaskRabbit. So much so, we have a costume contest at HQ every year. We were discussing as a team how to make this year’s contest more fun and had a genius idea: include you.
That’s right, consider this your official invitation to participate in TaskRabbit’s Annual Halloween Costume Contest. How do you enter?
All you have to do is upload a picture to the TaskRabbit Facebook wall. We’ll then consolidate all of the photos into a Halloween photo album and share them via social media. The photo doesn’t have to be of you – it can be any member of your family.
The owner of the photo that gets the most likes on Facebook will receive a spookily awesome Halloween prize. The winner will be announced on Halloween morning.

At TaskRabbit, we adore Halloween. From getting to dress up as whoever (or whatever) we want to be, to eating a silly amount of sweets and witnessing our loved one’s creative geniuses at play with their costume creation, we can’t get enough of this spooky day.
Every year, our community of TaskPosters and TaskRabbits amaze us with how they support one another to have an awesome Halloween. We’ve been keeping an eye on Halloween related tasks this year and wanted to share our favorites with you for some inspiration.
Without further ado, we present to you, the best Halloween tasks of 2013 (so far):
