Ratings and Reviews
Shocked at the negative reviews
Just used TR to move shelving units from my friend’s apartment to mine. The whole experience was great and the app was easy to use (and I work at a tech company!). The notifications work properly (important!) and you can leave/read reviews for potential suggestions. I read almost every review before deciding on a TR and I had a really easy and efficient time with my task. So I’m shocked at all the negative reviews on here - take a minute to do your research and you won’t be disappointed.
That said, because this is the App Store, one feature/UX suggestion I have would be to move the search to the header rather than at the bottom on Home as I actually had no idea it existed for most of the time I’ve had this app downloaded. Also, I wish you could set your TR results to sort the same way every time (I wanted price from low to high instead of recommended - it was annoying having to toggle that each time I searched a new time or date). Lastly, it would be more convenient to enter any promo codes in settings vs. after you’ve booked a task and are ready to checkout - especially since other sharing economy apps have conditioned us to do it this way.
Other than those three things, can’t really complain and would use again!
Rating the app, not the service
I’ve known about task rabbit for years now ever since I first moved to New York City about five years ago. The idea of the service is really great and I even made some money myself when I was working for TaskRabbit early on. However, since TaskRabbit is owned by IKEA, it’s a little disappointing seeing that such a large company with the kind of revenue they have put so little effort into making sure the user experience with in the app itself is seamless. Checking Tasker reviews for example is not seamless because the reviews tend to carry over from one Tasker to another and so I may be wanting to see what Tasker Anthony is all about but Maria and her reviews are still showing up. Or in another case if I am trying to book a cleaning task and I want to look specifically for deep cleaners to be sure that they have their own equipment, the app doesn’t give me an option to actually choose deep clean it it’s only displayed by time expected to be spent on the task. So it’s a great idea for a service overall and my experience with individual taskers and their jobs have been great but the execution of the app still has a lot of room for improvement.
This company has total extravagant prices . Some charge over $100 per hour work and require a minimum of 2 hours. I used a Jospeh B the first time I was new at task rabbit he is young and wanted to help so I put a nice review. He became my handyman after and took over 18 hrs to mount simple staff bed. Dresser desk and a rope for curtain in bedroom was mounted wrong 3 times in 4 hrs. Another handyman came yesterday and took him 15 min to mount same rope . This handyman was cheaper $32 per hour and took so long to do the smallest job. He is stubborn is his way even if he has no clue what he is doing . I ended up paying him more than all the furniture I got cost wise and still mostly in boxes . Don’t use him. He needs to hook up with an experienced handyman for serious time before he can take on jobs adding that he is NOT A HANDY MAN . After 5 visits he finally said he will bring the right drill since he could not make a hole in a cement wall and blamed the wall for that. The issue is that he doesn’t have the drill and holes were not properly made. He did not used anchors so all gave in open and all walll had to be fixed to add holes again. Unreal . Task rabbit is not even aware of the personal experience. Anyone can apply to be an employee at task rabbit. My building handyman does much better for a tip and they were amazed how poorly the work was done
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback, and we're sorry to hear about the poor experience.
As Taskers are independent contractors who set their own hourly rates, those rates can vary widely. TaskRabbit sets up the marketplace where you can shop for a Tasker who meets your needs based on price, reviews, etc.
Regarding the issues that occurred on your task, if you reach out to our Support team at help.tr.co, we'll be happy to look into this with you. Thanks, and we look forward to hearing from you!
