TaskRabbit is announcing today a first-of-its-kind integration with Amazon Home Services, a new platform where Amazon shoppers can hire fully-vetted and insured Taskers for handyman services.
Beginning today, online shoppers who need help with handyman tasks, furniture assembly and product installation can view and compare Taskers’ ratings, reviews and prices before directly hiring them. All Taskers are fully vetted and undergo identity and criminal record checks and every task is insured.
The integration represents the first time Clients can hire and schedule Taskers outside the TaskRabbit mobile and web platforms. Given our Taskers’ extensive handyman experience, having installed more than 40,000 flat-screen TVs and assembled more than 400,000 pieces of furniture over the past 4 years, TaskRabbit was a logical choice for Amazon.
Here’s what you can expect to see when you visit Amazon. When you purchase a flat screen TV or a new dining room table, you will see friendly Tasker faces as you go through the check-out flow. You can browse Taskers profiles, including ratings and reviews, and choose the person you’d like to work with. The entire transaction – including the product and service purchases – stays within Amazon.
“We are excited to see Taskers leverage their years of experience and exceptional reviews on the TaskRabbit platform into new opportunities to help Amazon customers with their handyman services needs,” said Leah Busque, founder and CEO of TaskRabbit. “Taskers now have the opportunity to connect directly with Amazon customers who are browsing the marketplace’s 85 million items that need ‘home servicing.’”
“I’m really excited to be able to be a part of this new offering,” said Tasker Brian Schrier. “I see this as a huge opportunity to grow my business and showcase my Tasking abilities to a massive audience of potential clients who need help getting things done.”
The TaskRabbit integration launches first in the San Francisco Bay Area and will expand to other areas in the coming weeks. There is no membership fee or subscription required to access the service providers.
The pioneer in “service networking,” TaskRabbit provides people and businesses with an easy, trusted and secure way to get both everyday and skilled tasks done. TaskRabbit connects people who need help, with ‘Taskers,’ a network of 30,000 pre-approved and background-checked individuals, who have the time and skills needed to complete the job, letting everyone live smarter. TaskRabbit is a one-stop marketplace for home and office services, including cleaning, handyman tasks, organization, deliveries, and moving help.
