San Francisco based startup TaskRabbit has just launched its service in Dallas.
The company’s platform allows you to describe a task you want completed, when and where it needs to be done and specify how much you’ll pay or request bids. You can then choose from a number of pre-approved “TaskRabbits” (people willing to complete your task for you) or let TaskRabbit pick a person for you.
They show up at the right time, in the right place and if they complete the task to your satisfaction you pay them via the TaskRabbit platform.
Prices for common tasks include grocery shopping at an average of $35, housecleaning at $65 and handyman services at $85.
