Your office begins at 9:00 am, sharp. You and your partner (husband or wife) both have full-time jobs. Although your office usually ends at about 6 pm on good days, it often takes about 9:00 pm to get home. Thanks to Dhaka’s excruciating and unpredictable traffic. When you finally return home, you are exhausted and there are still more chores to be taken care of. You change. Respond to a few more emails. Do some social networking. By the time you are done, it is past 12:00 am and you give up the hope of cleaning that untidy room and instead head to bed. Life is tough in a capitalistic society! A 24-hours day looks like a conspiracy!

Every one of us has different needs. Service, be it fixing a TV or cleaning your home, or painting your office, is a complicated affair. Probably you don’t need an entire day of an electrician or a painter, but often it is hard to bargain that way because of the nature of the job and you end up paying for the entire day.
Similarly, if you want a cleaning service for an entire month, finding a suitable arrangement for such a need can be challenging. HandyMama has it covered for you. While placing an order for a service, you can choose hourly, weekly and monthly plan and avail the service according to your needs.
Technology can help you bend time and save money. In today's world, the distance between your service provider and you should shrink — or grow — based on the apps you use and how you’re using them.
Consider time. It’s often easier if you can find a household or office help when you need one and outsource your chores whenever they come up while you focus on the works that matter. But you often don’t have that luxury. For instance, finding an electrician or cleaning your room takes hours. These are the works that sap your energy which should not be the case. This is the problem HandyMama has been solving for you.

Find a service professional by simply pushing a button on your mobile and then pay for the work done or what you hired for.
The idea of quality is subjective in the service industry. Our understanding of good or bad service is limited by our experience. Often when you buy a service, you can't say this is what I want. There is no quality checklist and nobody in service business offers one and thus nobody in service business guarantees quality. While this is the norm in the market, this is inconvenient for you as a customer. This means if you are not happy with the service quality, your only way is to let it go. Not anymore.
With HandyMama, you get 100% satisfaction guarantee. HandyMama told us, "if you are not happy, we arrange the service again. We make sure that our service professionals bring a smile to your face."
HandyMama treats taskers and professionals as entrepreneurs and works hard to ensure enough work for them on a daily basis.
