Book A Maid, Plumber Or Handyman Using This App

It’s not unheard of to use an app to order a pizza or to shop for some clothes. You can even use an app to book a babysitter. And now, thanks to a new app called Handybook, you can book a plumber, a maid, a handyman, and someone to do yard work and odd jobs.

The Handyman network screens applicants to make sure that you are getting a plumber when you ask for a plumber. Here is more from the press release: “Each plumber has completed a background and reference check, as well as an in-person interview with the Handybook team. Handybook’s strict screening process guarantees each service provider will be on-time, experienced and reliable—and perform the work at a set price to avoid gimmicks or rip-offs.”

This past October, Handyman raised $2 million seed-funding to help finance the offering.
