Getting Help with Google Maps
TaskRabbit allows users to get help for small tasks that they need completing. The tasks can range from house-hold chores and gardening help to more skilled jobs that the poster needs help in finishing.
Once a request for help has been made on TaskRabiit, background-checked members can bid for the job. The member who makes the lowest bid is then automatically assigned to run the task.
It is possible to search for people seeking help on TaskRabbit on a Google Map of submitted tasks. If you mouse-over a task map marker a small information window explains the task and it is possible to click-through to read the full details and submit a bid to help with the task.
TaskRabbit has a multiple step application process which includes an essay, video interviews and a background check to help ensure the security of TaskRabbit members.
