Airtasker is a good place to find people with skills. When it comes to bigger jobs, like fencing repairs, is it a good place to search from?
You may think that it’s faster and cheaper to find people on Airtasker for fencing services, but I would stop and think for a second. Why?
The quality and guarantee – two important words. You may never know the quality you will be receiving via Airtaker when it comes to bigger jobs like fencing. Reviews can say that maybe the service provider was good at painting the ceiling, or good at gardening, or very efficient when it came to fixing the door lock, as most likely one a person can do many things. But when you turn to a trusted fencing company, you know that their main focus and expertise is in fencing.
Also, when something goes wrong, then when using a fencing company, you know that they will offer a guarantee for fencing services provided. If there’s a mistake made by the fencing company, they will fix it without an additional cost. That kind of guarantee is not guaranteed on Airtasker.
Therefore, our recommendation would be to use Airtasker for smaller, not much expertise demanding projects, and leave the big jobs, like fencing, to the specialists.
