Productivity + Life Efficiency

“Why Outsource Tasks? I Can Do This Myself!” And Other Popular Misconceptions

Our customers come to us under a variety of circumstances. Some are racing the clock and won’t meet a deadline without some help. Maybe they’re lives are crazy busy or maybe they’ve procrastinated too long. Some don’t have the means to complete a specific task. They need a pickup truck to haul mulch or some borrowed brawn to move furniture. Some lack the technical expertise to complete a task – they’d like to repair something around the house but don’t know a socket wrench from a ratchet wrench, or they want to set up a wireless router and network in their home office.

Others are just more enlightened. They simply don’t want to spend their valuable free time picking up prescriptions and dropping off dry cleaning, washing windows and mowing the lawn. They prefer spending time doing what they love. Everyone loves free time.

At TaskRabbit, our goal is to help as many people as possible join the enlightened group. As we’ve mentioned before, according to the American Time Use Survey from the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, Americans spend an inordinate amount of time performing mundane and tedious chores. It doesn’t have to be that way!

By outsourcing your personal tasks, you can free up more time to do the things you love. Helping people discover a better, smarter way to live is what keeps us energized at TaskRabbit. We know life is busy. And we are here to help.
