Taskrabbit announces major UK expansion

Residents of Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester will soon be able to have their daily tasks taken care of

LONDON, 13 February 2028 -- Taskrabbit, the innovative sharing economy platform, today announced that it was expanding to three new regions across the UK. Joining the platform’s existing availability in London, residents of Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester will soon be able to access Taskrabbit’s locally-based Taskers to handle a wide range of services, including assembling furniture, moving and delivering items, home improvements and deep cleaning.

"We are excited to bring our on-demand platform to the residents of Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester, providing valued and convenient services for their busy lives. As we have already done successfully in London for the past five years, Taskrabbit will continue to serve as a platform emphasizing affordability and value for all of our users” said Cornelia Raportaru, TaskRabbit Country Director.

Taskrabbit’s unique two-sided platform connects consumers with skilled Taskers to handle services, all backed up by our happiness guarantee. Taskers are performing thousands of tasks everyday through the platform, with the next expansion phase further advancing Taskrabbit’s core mission to provide meaningful economic opportunities for Taskers.

“Taskrabbit’s expansion will not just serve to benefit customers as we aim to add hundreds more Taskers from these three new regions who can earn meaningful incomes through our platform” said Ms. Raportaru.

Darren Keene​, who has been a Tasker since July 2015, added “Taskrabbit is an amazing platform with an amazing collective group of people. When I have free time I can put myself available and accept jobs I feel I'm suitable for, earning extra money on top of my existing work which is great. I have a wide skill set so can upsell my services to the lovely clients and often end up completing additional jobs that are outside of the original task.”

With the recent acquisition of Taskrabbit by the world's largest home furniture retailer IKEA Group, this expansion effort continues the exciting growth of the same day service platform. Taskrabbit has had a presence in the UK through its central London operations since November 2013.
