Have you ever used a service like Uber or Lyft and thought "Why can’t I order a maid or someone to put together this new couch as easily as I can order a car to get to the club?" Well now you’re in luck, a new service called Handy does just that. They offer everything from furniture assembly to home cleaning. Handy has it all, and it’s just a few clicks away. They’ll even send someone to mount your TV for you.
Handy started in 2012 at Harvard Business School when Oisin Hanrahan and Umang Dua were looking for business ideas. They were roommates at Harvard and their apartment was constantly in a state of disarray. "We were living in squalor. We had furniture sitting in the apartment for months that we hadn’t put together," says Hanrahan, "We thought why don’t we start thinking about home services and solving this enormous problem." What’s the problem? Trying to find a service professional that you can trust.
Handy screens all of their freelancers, requiring rigorous background checks, personal references and even in-person interviews. "It’s harder to get into than Harvard," Hanrahan says. Thousands of professionals have applied but only a select handful get in. Handy takes all the leg work out of vetting your handymen and maids. Instead of scouring the internet for potentially fake reviews about Mr. Barely-Passed-My-Licensing-Test electrician, you can just use Handy and get an insured qualified professional who will do the job right the first time and save you money in the long run, and who doesn’t like saving money.
On the flip side, being a freelancer for handy is amazing. They offer great pay and a flexible schedule. Their cleaners make up to $22 an hour while their handymen can make up to $45 an hour. Handy also handles all of the payments, so there’s no more tracking down a customer to get paid. Want to join a team of qualified service professionals and take the hassle out of finding customers?
