Hiring a Tasker is simple, and only requires a valid credit card. You will not be charged until after the task is finished. You can book a Tasker up to 15 days in advance using the web or your mobile app.
In some cities where we operate, you have the option to book a Tasker for Same Day help. This article details which TaskRabbit services are available in each city.
Please note that Taskers set their own hourly rates, and therefore these rates will vary by Tasker.
Once you hire your Tasker, you will have the opportunity to chat with them about your task details. Please note that your Tasker may forfeit the task if you do not respond to chat messages. You can find more information about chatting with your Tasker in this article.

How to Hire a Tasker for a Future Date on the Web:
Go to the TaskRabbit website.
To begin the booking process select a task category or use the search bar to browse categories
Enter your task details, including date, time, and task location
After selecting "Save," we provide a list of Taskers who are available. Check their profiles to read reviews, see their hourly rates, and determine if they’re a good match for your task.

If your Tasker is unable to perform the task, they will forfeit the task. Then you can rebook the task if you'd like.
After your Tasker has completed your task, your Tasker will submit an invoice for the number of hours worked (and expenses, if applicable). Please note that all tasks have a One Hour Minimum, and your Tasker will be unable to invoice for less than 1 hour. We are a cash-less platform, so you should pay your Tasker securely through the site.
Your invoice will process within 24 hours of invoice submission. If you have any concerns regarding the invoice please reach out to Customer Support at help.tr.co for assistance.
How to Hire More Than One Tasker
Since all Taskers are independent contractors, each task invitation is sent to one Tasker. If you need more than one Tasker for a task, you should submit a new request for each hire. This ensures that every invoice is allocated properly to each Tasker's personal account.
For example, if you need two people to help you move across town, please hire the two Taskers separately. You cannot request two Taskers in a single task invitation. Please know that Taskers are not permitted to bring a friend to a task; all Taskers must be verified and background checked.
