TaskRabbit, the task management network that connects people with ‘Taskers’ to handle everyday home improvement tasks and errands, has announced its official launch in France. With plans to rollout into other French cities over the next 12 months, TaskRabbit is currently available in Paris through its mobile app and online platform. In addition, TaskRabbit provides furniture assembly service available through selected IKEA stores in and around Paris, and through IKEA’s e-commerce website.
Part of a larger European growth strategy, France is the fourth country where TaskRabbit operates, with service already available in more than 70 markets in the US, UK and Canada.
Recent survey data highlighted the demand for a platform such as TaskRabbit, with 40% of the country’s population searching for a service to help them with daily to-dos and most complex everyday tasks.
“For more than a decade, TaskRabbit has helped hundreds of thousands of homeowners and renters connect with trusted, reliable Taskers who can tackle domestic tasks, making everyday life easier,” said Stacy Brown-Philpot, CEO of TaskRabbit. “Whether it’s assembling furniture or mounting TVs, moving, repairs or gardening, we’re pleased to offer TaskRabbit in France so that everyone can have simple, instant access to help.”
