Doesn’t work for new providers

jasongoforth

If you’re wanting to earn extra money thru this program, good luck. You have to pay $50 for the background check & then when you think you’re gonna be getting jobs... you don’t. The providers that have been a part of the program before you will be the ones being accepted for jobs. Their profiles will also appear before yours because they’ve been accumulating positive rating longer than the newcomers. There’s no way to get ahead or be chosen by customers unless the developers figure out a way to give newcomers/new providers a chance. I’ve had only 2 jobs thru TAKL & I downloaded the app almost 2 months ago, one of which I had setup myself by talking my friend into downloading the app & hiring me thru TAKL. I’ve done countless jobs for him that aren’t even listed on TAKL because they require more skill & are much more technical than anything TAKL has listed as a service. I’ve hung over a 1000 TVs in the past decade... & what’s crazy is I’ve had other TAKL providers that I know ask me how to do jobs they accept like tv hangings (garbage disposals, electrical work, using drywall hangers... etc...). At this point I’m just frustrated & I wish I could get my $50 back because I need the extra money right now... which is what I thought TAKL would be doing thru its service. It doesn’t work

Disappointing resolution

iikxng.stxcks

I have to admit that initially, I was very happy with the service I received through this app. However, on the last job request, a young lady came to clean my house and brought her 15 year old daughter. Her daughter did most of the work and she didn’t do a very good job at all. I paid $200 to have my house clean and when they left, the floors were still dirty. They had not been thoroughly swept or mopped. Bathroom toilets, floors and mirrors weren’t cleaned. The one bed that I asked her to make, wasn’t made. The cabinets weren’t wiped down, as stated part of the service. The stairs weren’t swept or vacuumed. When I filed a dispute, the company only wanted to issue a $50 refund, but then decided to give me a $75 refund. I paid $140 to have a 15 year do a poor job cleaning my home and Takl didn’t think it was a good idea to refund my money or send someone else out to clean my house. I have a 5000 sq foot home and they were there less than 2 hours which makes it clear that they didn’t effectively clean my house.

More like flag football than Takl

The first few jobs I requested went pretty well. It was all downhill from there. I wound up getting my jobs cancelled because Takl blocked them from even getting to the contractor because they didn’t have anyone specializing in the particular job, or they wouldn’t accept liability for the job. My initial disappointment pertained to a job involving drilling into a ceramic floor tile, which couldn’t be done because Takl was concerned about cracking my tiles. They weren’t too worried about hanging a pull-up bar in my 9ft. ceiling, which could severely injure me if it fell, but couldn’t accept the liability of cracking one of my floor tiles. The second job involved repairing my lawn sprinkler plumbing (splicing one break), but they don’t have any irrigation specialists that can do the job. I would recommend Angie’s List or another home service app, Takl seems to be somewhat limited in the amount of jobs they can perform or are willing to supply an expert or “specialist” to do jobs. They would be my 3rd choice. If you can’t find anyone on an “Angie’s List” type of app, use Takl.
