A lot of Square Cow clients are DIYers that aren’t afraid to break a sweat, just like us. But they also know when to reach out for a helping hand when a project is a little too big to handle on their own. Luckily, in Austin we have an additional resource for finding qualified handymen at an affordable price.
That resource is NeedTo.com.
What is NeedTo?
NeedTo.com is an online meeting place for people to hook up with all sorts of skilled professionals from painters to upholsterers that are looking for extra work. People can exchange information on needs and services, and then connect with one another to get to-dos knocked out.
NeedTo has a bold, noble mission – to end unemployment. It’s a fairly large task, but NeedTo is chipping away at the unemployment rate in Austin by helping people tackle their to-do lists.
As an added feel good bonus NeedTo donates 10% of their revenue to local nonprofits that offer job-skills training. You’ll be helping people get work now and in the future!
How Needto.com Works
The process is pretty simple and straightforward. When you don’t have the time or the know-how needed for a project you can hop on NeedTo.com and find someone who does. It’s a way to get the right people to come to you so you don’t have to waste time searching for them. Here’s how it works:
Create a Post
It’s free to sign up and post your need. In the post add a short title that clearly states the need, the price you’re willing to pay and as many descriptions as possible about the job you’re needing done.
Pros will then make a bid for your job. You’ll be able to review all offers, read profile reviews and ratings for the professionals and check out their credentials to decide which offer works best for you.
Get the Job Done
After you’ve selected an offer you can connect with the person to work out all the specifics and schedule a time to get the work done.
Make the Payment
Once you’re satisfied with the job, NeedTo will release the payment to the pro through their secure online payment system or you can pay with cash.
Pretty awesome, right? This is especially great for Austinites that are putting their home on the market or making a move and need to get a few things done first. So use NeedTo.com to find local helpers, get your need-tos done then start calling Austin movers to get help with the move to your new home.
