Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We hope that you will find all the information you need about our services on this page. If you still have questions, please contact us!

WHAT IS NOWTASKR?

Nowtaskr is a proud Eastern Ontario company focused on helping clients take back their every day with an extra set of helping hands to knock things off their to-do list. Whether you’re looking for help around the house, someone to weed your garden, to deliver flyers for your business, or someone to help serve at your next dinner party, Nowtaskr can help with all of this and more!.

WHAT IS A TASKR?

Taskrs are our term for our employees. Instead of offering full or part time employment, we offer what we like to call flexible employment. Flexible employment is exactly that- it gives our employees the opportunity to work as much or as little as they want, whenever they are available. We do not make our Taskrs work a schedule, or a minimum number of hours per week; rather our Taskrs pick up tasks on their own schedules in order to allow for a greater work and life balance. Our Taskrs are experienced, well-rounded, professional and responsible and make us proud to do what we do.

WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?

Unlike traditional service companies, we don't directly offer professional services. What we offer are our Taskrs. They are able to complete a task under your supervision using your tools, given you that much needed extra set of helping hands.

WHERE DO YOU OFFER YOUR SERVICES?

Our Taskrs are your friends, family and neighbours - they are members of your local community and as such we offer our services in specific areas. For a full list, please see our locations page.

ARE THERE ANY LIMITATIONS ON YOUR SERVICES?

There are limitations to our services, despite how wonderful our Taskrs are, these are everyday people who are not able to complete jobs that require a professional. Our Insurance policy also limits us in what services we can provide. For further details please see our Terms of Service.

ARE YOUR TASKS INSURED?

Each task that Nowtaskr completes is covered under our insurance policy. Please see our Terms of Service.

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Paypal. At this time we do not accept interac online, but Paypal can be connected to a bank account for debt payment.

CAN I JUST PAY THE TASKR WHEN THEY SHOW UP?

Our taskrs aren't responsible for the day to day business operations, and as such do not carry payment terminals. We ask that all business transactions go through our main office. If you are not comfortable with online payment methods, please contact us.  

WHAT IF MY TASK TAKES LONGER THAN WHAT I BOOKED?

If you have underestimated the time it would take to complete your task, not to worry! If the taskr is available to complete your task with an extension, please contact us so that we can handle the administration. The taskr can not authorize an extension of the task. We are only able to extend the task in 1 hour intervals at this time.

HOW CAN NOWTASKR HELP MY BUSINESS?

Our Taskrs would make a great temporary member to your team to get you through those tough times. All of our Taskrs have experience and have been background checked, so they are ready for anything you could throw at them.

IS THERE A COST TO USE YOUR audition SERVICE?

There is no additional charge for this service, but there is an eight hour booking required. This can be booked for one day, or spread over several. If you want to use our audition service, please contact us and we can make all the arrangements!

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE TASKR DOESN'T SHOW UP?

If your taskr has not made it to the task by the requested start time, please contact us as soon as possible.
