09 Oct TaskRabbit Reviews: How to Outsource Furniture Assembly in 5 Minutes
Outsource like a Pro in 5 minutes or less!
TaskRabbit, a technology company that pioneered the “gig economy” and was recently bought by a Swedish company – IKEA. Ikea is one of my favorite places to buy furniture because they are cheap and stylish.
But wait, you have to assemble this flat-pack furniture at home? For some of us, we are familiar with the hassles and frustrations with assembling it. This acquisition was to provide a better in-house experience to hire a furniture assembler professional.
My first experience with Ikea dated back to my college days. I bought a desk and thought it would be a piece of cake to assemble. I took it home and tried to follow the step-by-step instruction manual that comes with all of their furniture. According to the manual, the “estimated” building time was 45 minutes. That was dead wrong. It took me over 2 painstaking hours to put the pieces together. As meticulous as I was, one of the legs that supported the table was a bit off, so that gap created a wobble.
That experience left me with a bitter taste. Needlesstosay, It was not as easy I had thought. Since then, I have moved on to outsourcing this process. Economically, it is definitely worth it to hire a professional that can assemble it much more efficiently and effectively.
This was when I turned to my best friend Google and found a company called TaskRabbit( this is my referral link, you’ll get 20 bucks off of your first hire). TaskRabbit is great because it allows you to hire a professional on-demand. It takes away the hassles of scheduling, but more importantly the pain and frustration of trying to assemble your own furniture.
I will walk you through the step-by-step process of hiring a TaskRabbit. The sign-up process is instant and the whole process takes less than 5 minutes. Are you ready?
Here it goes.

Pro tip: Once you established a relationship with your TaskRabbit, then you can exchange information privately.
Why do I do this? TaskRabbit is a service that charges both the user and the professional. For example, if the service costs $100 dollars, then TaskRabbit will charge you 7.5% fee and another 25% from the professional. Those fees will add up as you utilize their services, so save yourself some extra cash by following my pro-tip!
Take the frustrations out of the equation. If you want to scale and save some time, then it is definitely worth the investment upfront to hire a TaskRabbit. Trust me. You will thank me later.
