TaskRabbit, the task management app that connects people with “Taskers” to handle everyday home improvement tasks and errands, today announced its official launch in France.
With plans to roll out into other French cities over the next 12 months, TaskRabbit is currently available in Paris through its mobile app and online platform. In addition, TaskRabbit provides furniture assembly service available through selected IKEA stores in and around Paris, and through IKEA’s e-commerce website.
Part of a larger European growth strategy, France is the fourth country where TaskRabbit operates, with service already available in more than 70 markets in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.
Recent survey data highlighted the demand for a platform such as TaskRabbit, with 40% of the country’s population searching for a service to help them with daily to-dos and most complex everyday tasks.
San Francisco-based TaskRabbit is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ingka Group, a strategic partner in the IKEA franchise system. Its mission is to connect clients with skilled, rated and reviewed independent contractors who can help with a variety of tasks, from minor home repairs, packing and moving, to yard work, furniture assembly, delivery and more.
In addition, TaskRabbit enables assembly services at selected IKEA stores in the Paris region. Taskers are available to help IKEA customers with furniture assembly in their homes within a day after purchase.
TaskRabbit is currently accepting registration from all types of independent contractors, to be connected to work opportunities through its two-sided marketplace.
