. 4 min read

Jiffy is a platform that instantly connects homeowners with nearby, quality home improvement professionals in over 30 categories. Welcome to our blog, where we share home maintenance tips, inspirational design ideas, and information on how we make it easier than ever to complete projects around the house.

So you’re standing in the middle of what’s going to be your new living room. You’ve done as much of the work as you can, but there are still some nagging jobs left: the TV needs to be mounted, the new furniture hasn’t been assembled, and then there’s that hole in the drywall from the new couch that didn’t quite fit through the hallway like you thought it would. You just want it to be finished, but you aren’t really comfortable finishing the remaining tasks yourself.

We get it! And at Jiffy, we can help you get it done.

Jiffy makes it easier than ever to hire nearby handyman services for smaller household jobs that still require a professional touch. Whether you need your TV mounted, some drywall patched, or your windows caulked, we can connect you to the right Pro for the job. Here are five reasons why it’s better to hire a handyman through Jiffy.

Home improvement projects are stressful enough without having to worry about whether or not you’ve hired quality help. Which company should I go with? Am I overpaying? Is this job too small to have someone drive over to do it? Questions like these can prolong any project and only add to the frustration.

Our goal is to remove this uncertainty from the home improvement process. We believe that homeowners would much rather have access to a convenient hub for excellent home improvement professionals. When you book a job through our platform, you can rest assured knowing that we’ve asked the necessary questions so you don’t have to. With most of the legwork done already, Jiffy makes hiring a handyman simple, streamlined, and transparent.

2. All Jiffy’s Pros Are Rigorously Vetted

All of our Pros go through an extensive vetting process before they can join our team. We only work with top-quality service professionals and companies that are insured, certified, and registered. Before we sign off on any Pro, we consult online reviews of their past work, seek referrals from other trusted Pros and we meet them in person. This process provides insight into how long they have been working, their personality, and the consistency of their performance.

We believe that a handyman’s professionalism depends both on their skillset and how they interact with customers. They need to be friendly, communicate clearly and instill trust right away.

The vetting process doesn’t stop with us! You have the ability to rate our Pros on a five-star scale after every job. If any of our Pros dip below 4.6 stars, we remove them from our system.

3. Jiffy Charges Competitive, Preset Rates

One of the biggest concerns homeowners have when it comes to booking a home improvement job is that they often have no metric for what they are paying for. This is especially true when it comes to handymen. If they perform many different jobs, how are you supposed to know what one job should cost compared to another?

Jiffy does the heaving lifting for you. We’ve determined our preset rates by consulting thirty-plus companies in each of the service categories we offer. After documenting their rates, we calculated the average cost for these services. This way, you know you’re paying a fair, pre-determined hourly rate for every job. Plus, you only pay once the job is complete!

What does that mean for you? It means no more haggling, no more price comparing, no more exhaustive research. All of our rates are clearly stated during the booking process, so you will never be unsure about what’s owed for what job.

4. Jiffy Makes Booking A Handyman Easier Than Ever

Your days calling around, sifting through quotes and negotiating schedules are over. Our platform provides a seamless booking experience:

Simply select your desired service, fill in your order details and location, identify the timing that works best for you and we will dispatch the nearest Pro at the requested time. You can even track your Pro en route to your home. After the job has been completed, you can pay seamlessly and rate your Pro based on your overall satisfaction with the job. That’s it, that’s all!

Need to cancel? No problem! You can cancel your job for no charge up until your Pro has left for your appointment.

5. Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed

We hold ourselves, as well as our Pros, to the highest standards of professionalism and customer satisfaction. We aim to make your entire transaction, from the initial booking to the end result, a positive experience from start to finish. We're so confident in our ability to deliver exceptional service, that if anything didn't go perfectly, simply let us know and we'll do everything we can to make it right.
