About Handybook.com

Handybook.com is the online home of Handybook, a company that says their goal is to make finding and booking home service professionals quick, easy, and reliable for homeowners, businesses, and renters.

According to their website, Handybook.com is "the easiest way to get stuff done around the house" giving their users the ability to instantly book a qualified cleaner, handyman, electrician, plumber, or more.

They say that before, if something happened around your home and you needed a professional, it would take you a long time to go through classifieds or websites to find a professional in your area, and then actually finding a time for them to come to your home could be difficult.

Handybook.com solves this problem by acting as a one stop shop. You simply visit their website, tell them what you need to have done, where you live, the time of day that works best for you, and the website will "do the rest."

They promise that they will confirm your booking within 90 seconds, and you will have a reservation made with a professional that has gone through an extensive screening process, including background checks, reference checks and in person interviews for all professionals.

Once your professional has been booked, you will be quoted a payment price and be required to pay right then. The payment will be held by Handybook.com and not released to the professional until after the service is performed and you are happy with it.

Any customer who is not 100% satisfied with their service is eligible to get a 100% refund, according to their website, though you will likely have to call customer service to discuss this policy in more detail. 

Currently new users of Handybook.com can receive a $20 off coupon just by sharing their website on their Facebook page with friends and users.

horrible and a scam

Reviewed By Concerned customer on April 21, 2017

They changed the cleaner 4 times and I tried various ways to contact them to no avail! I signed up for the min of 3 months - BUT WHEN I WANT TO CANCEL AFTER THE FINAL horrible service, 3 months - they changed the terms to 9 months! I did not feel safe having who knows who enter my home so I decided to cancel. I will advise the credit card company to deal with the "cancellation' of $150! This is a total scam and I will be reporting them.

THE LAST PERSON TO ARRIVE ENDED UP NOT CLEANING 2 bedrooms and failed to make the bed. Her 4hrs was up so she had to leave! Consider yourself warned!

Scam!

Reviewed By Nika on January 4, 2016

The worst company I have ever dealt with. They have cancelled 5 of my appointments due to "unexpected last minute call off" just 5 minutes prior to the cleaning time. 5 times! Just today,, they cancelled literally minutes before the schedule booking and rescheduled to tomorrow 11 am (never asked it this was convenient for me) so I had no time to cancel on time!! This is beyond ridiculous as this time does not work for me and I now have to pay $25 cancellation fee!!!! They have the worst customer service and keep scamming their customers. Penalizing me with $25 fee for them cancelling last minute?

I am gonna file for a chargeback and file a complaint with BBB.

Terrible customer service

Reviewed By batman on August 4, 2015

Zero way to cancel a recurring booking, and good luck getting a refund if you wait longer than 3 days to report a problem. Three days? That's insane.

Total and complete scam!!!

Reviewed By meg m on March 2, 2015

They send cleaners to your house without permission, not even checking if you're home, and then charge you for it!!! When you call, nobody at Handy will help you and they have so much attitude after they've stolen from YOU!!! It's such an obvious scam..NEVER, EVER do business with them! Don't give them your CC info for any reason.

Bad customer service

Reviewed By Rui Li on February 11, 2015, New York, New York

I had a couple of coupons that weren't working when I punched in the codes. When I inquired with them, they said the coupons had expired. I told them there was no expiration date and had I known they were going to expire, I'd have used them sooner. They requested a pic of the coupons so I sent it to them. That was the last I heard from them.

I'm glad I didn't spend money on them because this experience would've foreshadowed any future dealings.
