Thanks to new mobile platform known as Handy, you can order a home cleaner, handyman, or plumber with just a tap on your Android or iPhone. Similar to the popular Uber app, this marketplace handles scheduling and payments on both the demand and supply and of the home services industry. This company has seen explosive sales in the last three months to with an explosive 60% growth rate. It currently operates in 13 cities and has plans to open for new offices in Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, and Chicago.

Reasons for Popularity

Handy is experiencing tremendous growth for a variety of reasons. It offers convenience for customers because they get exactly what they want through a simple app and website. This type of service eliminates the complicated, unreliable and sometimes even criminally-involved cleaning agencies and made services. By simply entering your zip code, the exact start time, and the number of rooms you need to be cleaned, you will innocently get a price quote with tax and tip included. If you like the price, your credit card on file will be charged and you will never have to worry about being overcharged or underpaying the cleaner.

Another reason why more and more people are choosing Handy is because it offers a reliable service. Handy screens all of his freelancers using references, background checks and in-person interviews. Thousands of freelancers apply to the company, but only 3% get accepted. In addition, freelancers get a flexible schedule and dependable pay. Freelancers can decide how much money they will make before they accept a gig, and they decide when and where they want to work. Also, many freelancers want reportable income for credit cards, car loans, and rentals, instead of the traditional under-the-table cash that is often paid for home services.

Record Growth for Handy

Known as the Uber of home maintenance, Handy recently reported that it is hit over $1 million in bookings per week. This shows that the market for online and mobile cleaning and home repair booking services is skyrocketing and the company is set to announce big numbers in the future. It is a win-win situation for both the supply and demand sides since customers get quality services and cleaning professionals work as freelancers to earn a healthy hourly wage and have the ability to pick their own hours. Currently in 25 cities in the US along with two cities in Canada and services in London, Handy continues to experience explosive growth as they continue to redefine their business through new apps and new branding for mobile devices.
