How It Works

Get matched with Certified Local experts from our Expert Marketplace

HandyBuddy is a powerful platform that provides instant online quotes for your exact item (not estimates) and matches you with the most qualified assembly, installation and tech set-up & support experts near you based upon your location, scheduling preference and skills/ratings of our experts. 

Unlike those other "on-demand" platforms, we aren't a lead-generation service - no estimates; no back and forth with questions about your project. Just submit a request and go.  

Get a Quote & Submit Request.

All HandyBuddy service requests must be submitted online from our website.  Start by searching our site for your exact item and click the QUOTES & SERVICE button.  After you enter your zip code, your exact cost of service is diplayed in the Quote box (this is not an estimate). Then select an appointment preference and click the HIRE AN EXPERT > button.

Get Matched.

Once a request has been submitted online, the HandyBuddy Service Desk gets to work. They'll search our extensive Expert Marketplace database of 1000s of approved preferred providers and match you exclusively with a top-rated and certified local expert.  And like those other annoying services, we won't flood your inbox with multiple matches at at time. Just the best match based upon your request details.

Get Connected.

Once the local provider accepts the exclusive match from us, we'll immediately share their contact information with you via a feature rich landing page on our Expert Marketplace which includes the company name, their email address, phone number, hours of operation as well as recent reviews of their work. This give you, the customer, full transparency regarding the match and you can reach out to them at any time to discuss the specifics of your request.

Stay Informed.

You will also receive regular email/SMS updates (depending upon your communication preferences) throughout the fulfillment process letting you know when your appointment has been confirmed and any other issues requiring your attention. In addition, you will be able to login to your HandyBuddy account at any time to track the status of your request.

Pay and Provide Feedback.

When the job is done, we'll text you (depending upon your communication preferences) and email you asking if the service has been completed to your satisfaction. If not, the provider will return to address any outstanding issues. Payment due will be the exact amount quoted when you placed the request (assuming no changes in scope). The provider isn't paid unless/until we know you are 100% satisfied with the service performed.
