If circumstances have changed and you no longer need your task completed, you have the option to cancel or reschedule your task before it is completed.
To reschedule, you will want to communicate with your Tasker directly. Reach out to your Tasker in the chat thread as soon as possible and see if they can work with you on finding a new appointment time. If you don't know how to contact your Tasker, please click here. Taskers have the ability to reschedule the task by setting a new appointment time once it has been agreed upon by both Client and Tasker. Taskers are often booked far in advance so if your Tasker is no longer available you may need to cancel your task and rebook.
Cancel from the Web
To cancel from the web, please visit your online dashboard and select the small circle with three dots inside the task window. This will reveal a drop-down menu where you can cancel your task. See the screenshot below for more details.
Cancel from the App
To cancel from your mobile app, please select the Tasks tab at the bottom of your screen. Then select the task you wish to cancel from the menu. Next, select Task Info at the top right-hand corner of your screen. Finally, scroll to the bottom to hit the Cancel Task option. See the screenshot below for more details.
Please note that if you confirm your task with the Tasker and cancel or reschedule your task within 24 hours of its scheduled start time, you may incur a one-hour cancellation fee at the Tasker’s hourly rate.
On-demand tasks may also incur a cancellation fee if you have confirmed the appointment with your Tasker, and they have begun working on or traveling to your task.
The cancellation policy is in place to ensure Taskers are fairly compensated for having set aside time in their day to assist Clients. All cancellations are reviewed internally and a determination is made whether or not a fee is applicable.
If the cancellation occurred because of the fault of the Tasker, you will not incur a fee.
If you've been charged a cancellation fee and wish to dispute it please contact our Customer Support Team.
If some work has already been completed at the time of cancellation, you and your Tasker should determine the number of hours the Tasker should be paid for. If you and your Tasker cannot come to an agreement, TaskRabbit will work with you and your Tasker to determine the appropriate payment for a partially completed task that is canceled.
