There are ways to best utilize the site to make your life easier during and after your move. 

Here are five ways to best use TaskRabbit for your home purchase in San Diego.

Here's a quick rundown of our list:

Tip 1 - Compare the price of the site’s Taskers for moving and packing with that of your moving company.

Sometimes, a moving company will offer package deals for packing, loading and moving that may be cheaper than hiring out a separate group of people to do it. 

However, definitely find out the price of Taskers to unpack you once you move into your new San Diego home. That will go a long way to getting settled quickly and not have boxes stacked for several months.

Have Taskers unpack two things first: your bed and your children’s rooms. With your bed, everything should be set up ready for sleep from the bed, bed frame, and mattress, down to the bed sheets, comforter and pillows.

Completely setting up furniture and bedding in kids’ rooms will make a big difference in how they handle the move. Immediately having familiar surroundings is important to children and Taskers can help get their rooms set up quickly.

Tip 2 - Plan out ahead of time what all services you are going to need and get prices for all services.

This would include any handyman services, any major home improvements, and furniture assembly, even mounting and installing a smart TV. Having an organized moving plan before you make the big move will make it much easier when you unpack. It will also help you plan your budget for services you really need help with versus things you can do yourself.

All of these things need to be discussed with either your moving company or Taskers ahead of time to determine both the cost and the safest way of bringing those items into the home.
