Any of you struggle with finding qualified help for chores at home that you or your f


I constantly struggled with finding help for chores at my home (plumbing , Painting a Deck , Landscaping etc.) . You cannot trust people from Craigs List while the Service companies are often too expensive.

Then came Chores Market where you can find helping hands near you, who you or your friends already know from your social networks (Facebook, Google). You can get a referral and hire someone on the site as well.

And the best part its FREE

Looks like a phishing scam here.

Sure does.
CL people are fine so long as YOU know what needs to be done, how to do it and you can have/make the time to SUPERVISE them. Have something else for YOU to do while they're doing what you don't want to.

It's better though to advertise FOR someone in the "gigs' section to do X or Y rather than trying to get somebody who thinks they're some sort of contractor to do only X or Y.

Beyond that... don't be shy about firing anyone who isn't up to it.
You'll know, or have a good idea, before lunch. Trust your gut.

Craigs List is the absolute last place I'd look. When we need someone to do some chore around the place, we hire only people we know personally or who are recommended by someone we know. Through our church, we know many unemployed or underemployed people who are grateful for the chance to make a few bucks.
