In this TaskRabbit Tasker review, I’m going to share some of the pros and cons of this opportunity. I’ll also give you a rundown on how you can get the app.
These days, gig sites are so popular. They allow us to get things done on the cheap, which also saves us time. But is it worth it to become a Tasker if you value your time?
Let’s find out if TaskRabbit actually delivers and is worth your time when it comes to making money just for completing tasks for others. Because we all know, time is money.
What is TaskRabbit?
TaskRabbit is a marketplace that provides freelance Taskers (people who perform tasks or gigs) and customers who need help with everyday tasks, a platform to connect. The company was founded back in 2008 and is based in San Francisco, CA.
Currently, the company is available in over 60 cities in the US as well as some cities in Canada and the UK. At the time of this review TaskRabbit has over 140,000 background checked Taskers.
How TaskRabbit Works
Basically, as I mentioned TaskRabbit puts you in contact with customers who need to have jobs done. You can earn money with the company when you become a Tasker and perform gigs for customers the customers who TaskRabbit connects you with on their site. Think of them as the middleman.
As you can imagine the more skilled you are, the better chance you have of earning more for completing tasks. Some of the popular categories for Taskers include:
- Furniture assembly
