There are some services that that just make sense. Uber, for example, makes booking taxis effortless. Airbnb makes finding accommodation anywhere in the world incredibly simple. And now, TaskRabbit joins the list of companies that make life easier with a clever bit of tech.

Whether you’re after a handyman, cleaner, personal assistant or mover, the service offers loads of ‘taskers’ who can come and help. All the taskers are put through a rigorous vetting system to ensure safety and security. You can book by the hour on their website or through their app and they process payment for you. Taskers have the freedom of working for themselves and people who need work done have an efficient system of booking someone’s time.

There are no massive agency fees, no commitment to fortnightly services, you just book online when you need an extra set of hands. It really is that easy.
