    When you are a housecleaner, the last thing you want to do is spend 4-5 hours a week looking for work. That's why an app such as this one can help. It's so much easier to find work. There's even one for people who are looking for housecleaners, so it makes it very simple.

  • From an honest handy man Mar 18, 2021

    By dhjakalwolwkwlmcndusnwjkwopd
    Hey y’all, So I’ve been using this app for probably 5-6 months now. All honesty it’s the simplest handyman app out there. Nothing quite competes. You know what you’re getting paid for the jobs. You know what the job is. Best thing is you get free direct deposit same day with no charge for the time being. There’s also these quests that give you extra money that pop up every so often. Worst thing about the app in my opinion is the job description for the quote “handyman” jobs. Or jobs from other apps like home advisor. They lack on telling you what exactly you’ll be doing. My recommendation for the app makers is to allow customers to add photos to the job so the professional knows what equipment is needed for the job.

    It’s a constant battle between customers and the app. They will always take the customers side and fine you $50+ then you have to email them and dispute the issue. They don’t have a phone number for pros but have one for customers. Example is recently a customer didn’t show up at the appointed time so I marked it a no show and got paid and went on my way. Then 30 minutes down the road they call me and begged me to come back telling me every sob story in the book. So here I am going above and beyond I turned around and did a variety of tasks for the customer In the allotted time that I was given. I told the customer she lost an hour because I already was here and she didn’t show up and I had other appointments after hers so I couldn’t stay later. I even hauled bulk waste from her house to make the customer happy which wasn’t in the job order. She complained I didn’t show up on time after I left and now I’m down 50 bucks off a $75 job. It’s been 4 days and no reply from the app. I have a bunch of other instances where a cheap-o customer rips off the app and therefore rips off the tech. Good news is I made $3000 last month working 6 days a week. Definitely not a solid job. Both the app and the customer expect you to be a miracle worker. Good Luck!

    It has been a great tool for me to provide me with income. However there are some problems. Often if not always the back arrows do not respond or do not respond quickly. also I am unable to contact my customers until 24 hours before the start of the job. At that time if the job is not what it was described as it is too late for me to cancel it without incurring a fee. About half the time the message function, the chat function does not work. The add photo option has never worked

    Love the concept. More can be done with the app though. - why can’t pros read reviews? Would help to know what the issues were rather than only see our overall rating. - allow communication before a “claim” - have to claim job just to get useful details,.... then get a negative reaction to your keep rate simply because you wanted to make sure the job was specifically something you could handle. - allow a search radius - should be my choice if I want to see jobs 95 miles away - allow a price filter - would be nice to be able to see the higher paying jobs sometimes - don’t allow recurring jobs for work not scheduled through handy - sometimes they don’t know what they’ve done and aren’t expecting people - allow rescheduling back to an earlier date/time - if job is set for Saturday at noon and change it to Saturday at 3pm for a reason BUT I should be allowed to go back Saturday at noon - helps customer sometimes. - force customer to have some sort of communication listed - makes things easier - did not like getting a 1 star review for arriving on time, checking into job, speaking with customer directly, being told work was completed from outside source, checking out and getting 1 star review - negatively affects my potential for something outside of my control Overall, love the concept. Love the work. Love the quests. Money is great too. Everything can’t be fixed but there are some items that can be improved. Thanks.

    I love Handy they help me fill in my days that I don't have work. My only complaint and why it's 4 stars is bc reaching someone takes a little longer than I'd like. Also with construction jobs they should require a picture to bid on it and if they do they need someone else to do it. My husband also uses Handy and went to stain a deck that was "3hrs" with metal spindles with a good amount of steps. Customer wanted top and bottom done, that takes one person a good 8-9hrs

    So far so good, pick the jobs you want is cool.. just be careful leaving your schedule open to automatically be booked by people. Because sometimes those jobs aren't worth it, or you end up doing more work. Like job description might say assembly of one bed but when you get there it's a 10-piece solid wood bed that has 50 drawers or something.. lol.. just be careful and read the descriptions

    I love working for handy. The only down side is not knowing who gives you what ratings. I have had a few people I know didn't like me off the bat then bam a bad review. I know the people that love my work. I clean everyone's house the same I even go beyond and make sure they don't need anything else. I also leave by their ok. But yet I get reviews saying I depart early. Well they let me. They should allow us to email ourselves and we should be able to provide before and after photos for each job

    my only wish is that some jobs i'd like to talk with the client before accepting a job to get a few more details. cancelling jobs may come with a cancellation fee, and cancelling jobs affects the keep rate, which may affect your ability to continue using the platform.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the app, but they need to standardize a few things, or establish better practices with their partners. If there is a job requiring multiple providers, the contact info for each provider should be made available to the other for better arrival and job coordination. Any TV installation on 55" or great should require 2 people. We should not have to rely on the home owner for assistance. Clients should also be allowed to provide more detail about their projects.

    This is a good idea but really really needs some improvements. First off, cash out now should mean you can get your money NOW. Not in a couple of hours or days or in a week, NOW! Secondly, correct me if I'm wrong but it seems like you've spent more on advertising your app with the focus of getting employees instead of spending money on having LIVE SUPPORT for us employees. Third, requiring clients to upload photos of what they need done would help employees bring the proper tools for the job.

    When clearing notifications of jobs, they no longer show up in the app as available jobs. That's a major issue. Also, why can't we narrow the radius of available jobs? They keep showing me different states. Another issue is I have certain jobs filtered out to not show but they still show and alert me to them. Come on guys. What's the point of the filter.
  • it's not professional Nov 10, 2020

    By mrsjlp
    They do not trust the Pro, I have a bad experience since I did a full day job and then they tell me that customer canceled the job in the morning when that is not true I have sent them proof of the work done through email, with photos of the work and hours and they still do not believe you they do not support the worker at any time and now they want to charge me for the work I did, I find it shameful that one is honest and does their job and has to be going through bad times without reason and without asking me to me directly if there was a problem !! I was able to contact the customer and the customer was as impressed as I was and the customer himself contacted them to explain that I did my job and that he was at work all day and they don't care they just care to stay with the money!! I put my car, gasoline, tools and my work and they, without doing anything, keep 70% of the earnings from work without doing anything and then they don't even support you and when you have a problem you can only contact by email ... There have been times that I have driven 1 hour to the customer's house and the customer has wanted to cancel the work because it cannot be done or because the product did not arrive and Handy pays you only $ 15 and also they do not have a contact phone number.
  • 4.6 STARS? Apr 5, 2021

    By gregliv904
    I just filled out they’re application and downloaded the app. I haven’t opened the app to actually get started yet. Typically I like to read and check the reviews on apps. Especially if they’re claim to have 4.6 / 5.0 stars. But strangely enough 36 out of 40 reviews I read were all extremely bad. These are reviews of workers not of people looking to have work completed. It’s truly sad. I’m a licensed electrician and I work full time so thankfully I don’t need this app or their scams of service. I honestly was just looking to do a few side jobs on the weekends but after reading these bad reviews I want nothing to do with them. And almost feel like letting my cousin who’s a news anchor at local news station know about this. It’s truly a scam and taking time and money from workers. Everything I’ve read clearly shows that their only in it for the money. Having no number or direct line for the workers to contact just goes to show that it’s just a few people who had extra funds and created a platform app to further deepen their pockets. You should feel ashamed of yourself. This makes me extremely upset after hearing all these horrible experiences. Sure people lie on reviews, that can be expected but 36 out of 40. Someone seriously needs to investigate them. I’ll be sure to report them to the BBB.
  • Horrible System - doesn’t care for workers Nov 21, 2020

    By Kkearron16
    Do not use this app. When I started working for handy my first job was 6 hours and I was surprised when I was only compensated for two. I was told that unless the customer adds time then I wouldn’t not be paid and thanks for the hard work. I reach out to customer of course to no reply. I then followed there method and still had trouble being compensated on further moves either because customers claim to have trouble with app or not actually having the app at all. Some customers set up appointments from where they bought furniture or what they need assembled not through handy this is something else I was unaware. So customer do not have handy number and neither do we as workers as it is all through email. This more than likely leads to customers never contacting handy to tell them you worked past the time. Handy tells you to leave when the time is up if customers don’t add time but then you get a bad rating in review. I had all five stars until I left a job cause a customer told me they didn’t know how to add time and received a one star review. On top of that I was charged 40$ when I needed to cancel a move one time. So basically they will charge for having to cancel but won’t compensate you for your actual work.

    Don't waste your time with this app. I've had my info in for over 6 weeks and I'm still not live on the app. I contact Pro support and get the same old message "some applications take longer to review than others" I've gone live with 3 other similar apps within 3 days.
  • Great idea, Poor execution. Feb 7, 2021

    By NolaDad504
    I love the idea of this app, and being able to claim your jobs to assist with your schedule. Well I myself am from a big city and jobs weren’t available on this app for long. If you aren’t watching your phone constantly for a job to pop up, chances are somebody else will claim it first. So after a few days of trying to find jobs to claim I was finally fast enough to claim my first one. Excited that I finally have my first job to go do on Monday morning I make note of it on my personal schedule for that day. Well Saturday night before I worked security gig overnight for a friend. Got in early Sunday morning and went to sleep. I wake up to 2 notifications. One was a request to confirm my job again for Monday, that I had already confirmed and then 3 hours late another text saying my job was removed because I didn’t respond. So after stalking this app for 2 days trying to be fast enough to get a job claimed, it gets removed on me while I’m sleeping the day before it’s scheduled to be completed?! Oh and you do get penalized with fees for cancellation of claimed jobs. So just a heads up to those interested in this app.

    This app works maybe 10% of the time and never sends the PIN it asks you to put in, and when I do finally get in it, it shows I have no bookings, when I do have a booking. Just use their website, it works much better than this garbage app.
  • Disappointed Jun 5, 2021

    By hounbyourass
    While I enjoyed working with the clients handy allowed me to meet. I was very disappointed in the way the agents or customer service reps handled jobs. Several times I would say 4 of 7 jobs were miss quotes or out right ridiculous ones. For instance a quote was given to a customer for me to come out and pour 15 yards of concrete for $350. In addition also estimated a four room house 2400 sq feet to stain concrete for $270. Of course the handy professional was on the front line of dealing with the customer and explaining that those prices don’t even cover the cost of supplies oh which the handy professional is required to supply. Then when there is a problem the handy professional is always in the wrong when it comes to fees. No matter what the issues is we were wrong. Even if we had out right written communication with the customer we are still charged. There is a tremendous breakdown between agents for the consumer and the professionals I hope someday they can fix this because this really could be a great service but the person behind the computer has no business bidding construction jobs.

    Company is great but they could pay better. As a house cleaner starting income should be $25 if paid by hour or cleaners should be making $100 for a small apt cleaning here they only give you half of that but they really do charge the customer $125. So you are giving them half for finding you the leads . On top of that they will charge you fees for just about anything. And when you need to speak to a person you will never find a human to talk to. I wonder why they hide their identity so much?

    It’s a constant battle between customers and the app. They will always take the customers side and fine you $50+ then you have to email them and dispute the issue. They don’t have a phone number for pros but have one for customers. Example is recently a customer didn’t show up at the appointed time so I marked it a no show and got paid and went on my way. Then 30 minutes down the road they call me and begged me to come back telling me every sob story in the book. So here I am going above and beyond I turned around and did a variety of tasks for the customer In the allotted time that I was given. I told the customer she lost an hour because I already was here and she didn’t show up and I had other appointments after hers so I couldn’t stay later. I even hauled bulk waste from her house to make the customer happy which wasn’t in the job order. She complained I didn’t show up on time after I left and now I’m down 50 bucks off a $75 job. It’s been 4 days and no reply from the app. I have a bunch of other instances where a cheap-o customer rips off the app and therefore rips off the tech. Good news is I made $3000 last month working 6 days a week. Definitely not a solid job. Both the app and the customer expect you to be a miracle worker. Good Luck!

    I wanted to check out Handy to see if they had an option for computer or network jobs, and they did. The problem is, after choosing that as the only job type I was interested in, I was forced to also have handyman as a job type. I'm not a handy man, I'm a network engineer. When the time came for me to choose my first job, I was offered multiple labor jobs and no network or computer jobs. This may be good for someone that actually is a handyman, but not me.

Charge the customers more and plus give the pros more than 30%, you will make more money plus you will get better pro's and that will weed out the bad ones.

  • Handy pro app review Nov 20, 2020

    By Mama Rego
    This app has supported me in getting jobs when I couldn’t round them up myself. Pro support isn’t as great as I would like due to they charge fees for everything. I have had customers that no showed and did not communicate; meaning no response to calls or texts or locked gates. I have been charged the full amount I was paid due to leaving early when a customer never responded. I am charged a fee even during covid for canceling in too short of notice even though handy highly recommended to cancel if I wasn’t feeling well. You are paid for the time customer and handy bid and don’t get the extra pay unless customer calls it in. And like today customer had very little room to work in and I spent time moving furniture around. So it’s defined got its pros and cons. Overall I say it’s worth it. Just be aware at all times of what is going on.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the app, but they need to standardize a few things, or establish better practices with their partners. If there is a job requiring multiple providers, the contact info for each provider should be made available to the other for better arrival and job coordination. Any TV installation on 55" or great should require 2 people. We should not have to rely on the home owner for assistance. Clients should also be allowed to provide more detail about their projects.

    When clearing notifications of jobs, they no longer show up in the app as available jobs. That's a major issue. Also, why can't we narrow the radius of available jobs? They keep showing me different states. Another issue is I have certain jobs filtered out to not show but they still show and alert me to them. Come on guys. What's the point of the filter.
  • Great idea, Poor execution. Feb 7, 2021

    By NolaDad504
    I love the idea of this app, and being able to claim your jobs to assist with your schedule. Well I myself am from a big city and jobs weren’t available on this app for long. If you aren’t watching your phone constantly for a job to pop up, chances are somebody else will claim it first. So after a few days of trying to find jobs to claim I was finally fast enough to claim my first one. Excited that I finally have my first job to go do on Monday morning I make note of it on my personal schedule for that day. Well Saturday night before I worked security gig overnight for a friend. Got in early Sunday morning and went to sleep. I wake up to 2 notifications. One was a request to confirm my job again for Monday, that I had already confirmed and then 3 hours late another text saying my job was removed because I didn’t respond. So after stalking this app for 2 days trying to be fast enough to get a job claimed, it gets removed on me while I’m sleeping the day before it’s scheduled to be completed?! Oh and you do get penalized with fees for cancellation of claimed jobs. So just a heads up to those interested in this app.

    While I enjoyed working with the clients handy allowed me to meet. I was very disappointed in the way the agents or customer service reps handled jobs. Several times I would say 4 of 7 jobs were miss quotes or out right ridiculous ones. For instance a quote was given to a customer for me to come out and pour 15 yards of concrete for $350. In addition also estimated a four room house 2400 sq feet to stain concrete for $270. Of course the handy professional was on the front line of dealing with the customer and explaining that those prices don’t even cover the cost of supplies oh which the handy professional is required to supply. Then when there is a problem the handy professional is always in the wrong when it comes to fees. No matter what the issues is we were wrong. Even if we had out right written communication with the customer we are still charged. There is a tremendous breakdown between agents for the consumer and the professionals I hope someday they can fix this because this really could be a great service but the person behind the computer has no business bidding construction jobs.

    This is a great opportunity for extra cash and if you really hustle and get repeat customers it can be a full time job. HOWEVER, the pay for certain projects isn't the best. Depending on the type of projects you could definitely make more money working for a company that only does that type of work. Also, watch & review your payouts! They will double charge you for fees and it's a bear getting answers to fix ANY issue you have with the app, a job, or pay!

    The app is okay but it sucks too, I feel like it would be easier to evaluate the job if you could talk to the clients via messaging and being charged $50 dollars if you cancel a job seems asinine almost like Handy is scamming you I feel like clients should post pictures of what they want done in case the job is actually larger then they say in the posting.

    App works great but the big problem is not enough work or money handy gets 105 dollars an hour and pays the pros 20.00 . My truck my gas everything!! Should be the opposite ! Let's give the pro 80.00 dollars an hour and handy 25.00 that's fair and a much better business plan ,there would be more work and everyone would be happy !!

    This is a good idea but really really needs some improvements. First off, cash out now should mean you can get your money NOW. Not in a couple of hours or days or in a week, NOW! Secondly, correct me if I'm wrong but it seems like you've spent more on advertising your app with the focus of getting employees instead of spending money on having LIVE SUPPORT for us employees. Third, requiring clients to upload photos of what they need done would help employees bring the proper tools for the job.

    They do not trust the Pro, I have a bad experience since I did a full day job and then they tell me that customer canceled the job in the morning when that is not true I have sent them proof of the work done through email, with photos of the work and hours and they still do not believe you they do not support the worker at any time and now they want to charge me for the work I did, I find it shameful that one is honest and does their job and has to be going through bad times without reason and without asking me to me directly if there was a problem !! I was able to contact the customer and the customer was as impressed as I was and the customer himself contacted them to explain that I did my job and that he was at work all day and they don't care they just care to stay with the money!! I put my car, gasoline, tools and my work and they, without doing anything, keep 70% of the earnings from work without doing anything and then they don't even support you and when you have a problem you can only contact by email ... There have been times that I have driven 1 hour to the customer's house and the customer has wanted to cancel the work because it cannot be done or because the product did not arrive and Handy pays you only $ 15 and also they do not have a contact phone number.
  • 4.6 STARS? Apr 5, 2021

    By gregliv904
    I just filled out they’re application and downloaded the app. I haven’t opened the app to actually get started yet. Typically I like to read and check the reviews on apps. Especially if they’re claim to have 4.6 / 5.0 stars. But strangely enough 36 out of 40 reviews I read were all extremely bad. These are reviews of workers not of people looking to have work completed. It’s truly sad. I’m a licensed electrician and I work full time so thankfully I don’t need this app or their scams of service. I honestly was just looking to do a few side jobs on the weekends but after reading these bad reviews I want nothing to do with them. And almost feel like letting my cousin who’s a news anchor at local news station know about this. It’s truly a scam and taking time and money from workers. Everything I’ve read clearly shows that their only in it for the money. Having no number or direct line for the workers to contact just goes to show that it’s just a few people who had extra funds and created a platform app to further deepen their pockets. You should feel ashamed of yourself. This makes me extremely upset after hearing all these horrible experiences. Sure people lie on reviews, that can be expected but 36 out of 40. Someone seriously needs to investigate them. I’ll be sure to report them to the BBB.
  • Horrible System - doesn’t care for workers Nov 21, 2020

    Do not use this app. When I started working for handy my first job was 6 hours and I was surprised when I was only compensated for two. I was told that unless the customer adds time then I wouldn’t not be paid and thanks for the hard work. I reach out to customer of course to no reply. I then followed there method and still had trouble being compensated on further moves either because customers claim to have trouble with app or not actually having the app at all. Some customers set up appointments from where they bought furniture or what they need assembled not through handy this is something else I was unaware. So customer do not have handy number and neither do we as workers as it is all through email. This more than likely leads to customers never contacting handy to tell them you worked past the time. Handy tells you to leave when the time is up if customers don’t add time but then you get a bad rating in review. I had all five stars until I left a job cause a customer told me they didn’t know how to add time and received a one star review. On top of that I was charged 40$ when I needed to cancel a move one time. So basically they will charge for having to cancel but won’t compensate you for your actual work.

    Don't waste your time with this app. I've had my info in for over 6 weeks and I'm still not live on the app. I contact Pro support and get the same old message "some applications take longer to review than others" I've gone live with 3 other similar apps within 3 days.

    This app works maybe 10% of the time and never sends the PIN it asks you to put in, and when I do finally get in it, it shows I have no bookings, when I do have a booking. Just use their website, it works much better than this garbage app.

    The support for Handy sucks... I have explained several times i am not receiving the EMAIL LINK to verify my bank and card information. I have did what it requires. The I email support and they tell me to do the steps I just did. The issue is your app is not generating an email for me to receive the link. I still haven't received the link.
  • Be careful( updated at bottom DO NOT TRuST) Apr 1, 2021

    By rsb😊
    I recently used these guys to fill in some time while waiting for a large job to start. I’ve been lucky on most but the descriptions are not satisfactory, I went to one job that was described as sealing a leaky window and it was actually replace a door, interior/exterior trim, remove a window- fram around in, install new window. Most recently I went to hang a tv on my day off. I could not get into the customers unit and followed the instructions on the app to the letter. They later tried to send me a fee for missing a job. After way too much time trying to reach someone, the arguing, they agreed to remove the fee but then also removed my pay claiming I was 4 min late on. A job I am certain I was 12 min early. They basically told me that I was late because they said so(all the digital proof on my app conveniently had been removed). A couple odd jobs would consider them but if you’re looking for regular work you’d be better off on your own.... UPDATE. After arguing for the money they owe me. They started sending me missed job reports for jobs I didn’t schedule. And adding fees for missing jobs that didn’t exist!

    Working with handy is a pain… I don’t care what you do and how much you followed the instructions, they will always take their customer’s side. They are very sneaky and not trustworthy. They would lie against you as a pro just to satisfy their clients. I worked with them for three years before leaving this review so I know exactly what I have endured. Handy would slap you in the face and make you feel stupid for your hard labor. If you can find other companies… do it cause they’ll probably treat you way better. Let’s not even get into talking about most of their customers 🤦🏾‍♀️. Most are Very rude and unappreciative ( over time, I found out that’s handy’s fault ). Never have an emergency because even if it has to do with your life… you still gonna get charged for it. Jobs get canceled up to a few hours before the booking. You labor hard and only very few customers makes it worth it. Before you sign a contract with them, understand that they don’t care about you as a pro, the only thing that matters is satisfying their customers even if it means kissing A**es or incurring $345 for a job you did right or followed all procedures.
  • Contact... Jul 12, 2021

    By Tequilalizard
    At this point I will never use handy as a way to get jobs done or be a pro simply based off of your lack of ability to contact someone in case of emergencies.. My bfs phone was stolen last night and he had a job to get to this morning.. without his phone he had no way of knowing the address or contact info for the client. After trying to email support repeatedly for help he’s gotten no where and no one has called (we supplied my phone number) and nothing but an automated email back. He says he will now undoubtedly be charged a fee for not showing up. All of that could have been avoided if you were truly there for your pros. Instead of only caring to make money off of them. I am a house keeper and had been contemplating using your platform, now not a chance in hello. Nor will I ever recommend not only because instances such as this but as a woman doing housekeeping alone in someone’s home there’s no way to contact someone for help or if I feel unsafe! Shame on you handy, and anyone whose thinking about using this platform do so knowing you are truly on your own. This company does not care about its pros at all.
