What's New in Version 5.18
We have some new sharing options for you! Next time you see the share button, just think about that one friend who always eats a bag of chips on the couch. This way, you can nudge them to clean up and you’ll get credit to go with it. Of course, there are also the itinerant performance tweaks and bug fixes.
Handy is a nice idea and offers good prices, but in practice the service is atrocious. I've tried their cleaning services several times and had bad experiences almost always. The cleaners often come from far away and thus have no concept of traffic or parking in my city (SF) and are often late. I had one cleaner get mad and spout racist comments when I asked her to clean things that she had forgotten but were on my original booking request.
I just tried to use the moving help service. They confirmed the booking a few days before the appointment (which was important, because I had to have them come at the same time as a delivery), but they canceled late the night before the morning appointment. The same happened to me in one cleaning appointment. They then rebook you for the next day, which is unacceptable because the timing doesn't always work out and you then have to cancel that within the 24 hour window and get charged a cancellation fee. They are good about giving credits back when you have a complaint, but the fact is that the process and service should be improved so that complaints are less necessary.
Even though the prices are low, you get what you pay for, and in my opinion the headaches and annoyance you have to deal with make this app a complete waste of time.
Convenient app. Love pro teams feature
I've been using handy for 3 years now in both San Francisco and New York. Have had over 80 cleanings and 5 handyman bookings. Super solid service and very convenient. Nothing compares in these cities. Pro teams feature lets you request your favorite pros.
Best way to use Handy
If you're a handy customer I recommend you use the app. I've used the website and the app has more features and is superior to the site. Quick and easy appointment booking.
