Over 2 months to completely get set up. System is terrible. Once you say your available you then have to wait for customer to choose from you and others that said they are available. Then client can make it worse to let you bid auction the job which is terrible. App needs alot of work!
I signed up for TAKL in November, I have also worked the Handy app. TAKL pays more and gives more than the other app, plus they have more jobs. I have completed haul aways and house cleaning tasks, haven't had any trouble getting chosen as a provider or getting paid. Thank you TAKL, this is exactly what I needed <3
I have been using the app for a week now. I signed up as a provider and paid $35 application fee. I didn't think it would be a big deal considering I thought I could make some money. All wrong. I have said I was available for simple jobs only for the customer to choose another provider. I may be a woman but I'm educated and trained in different areas. I even have my own power tools. Sadly, I was never given an opportunity to prove that Im a good pick. I feel robbed out of my $35 now. Very messed up system.
Don't expect to compete for jobs if you don't have the fastest 4G connection. And expect that their provider support is unhelpful, dishonest. They are exploitative and just making $ off your hard work. Read the fine print in the Terms. Craigslist still works for me fine.
Customers are way too cheap. They expect you to provide services for less and also pay for materials (paint is expensive you know). If you don't want the provider to CANCEL pay for your OWN materials, and I'll provide the service... CHEAP BASTARDS!
Like many other failing apps. This one may not be around for long. I've signed up few month ago and have not got a single job. The one time there was a request for a job, it was over 90 miles from where I live. Additionally Takl expects you to get your own liability insurance, which could cost around 800.00 a year. Drive for UBER, you'll make money the first day
-On first install, you can still choose one of our generic regions as your location to see what's available in your area, or you can geo-locate yourself through the magic of satellites & zeroes and ones.
-After we match customers with a provider, we'll remind them that they have someone to choose from with push notifications.
-Fixed: In rare cases old promo codes were giving the incorrect amount off on jobs.
-Fixed: After customers canceled a job, they could still get texts and pushes about it.
