The Trusted Name in Affordable Maids

Experienced

The reason Handy has become the go-to name in cheap maid service providers is that the platform gives you everything you need to make an informed decision. When you hire a maid, you want to know that the person you hire has the can-do and the know-how to get the job done, and comes recommended. You could spend hours trawling the internet, you could try your luck on an online ad- or you could skip all that and just go straight to Handy. Affordable maids who use Handy to look for work come star-rated and reviewed by customers, like yourself, who’ve already used their services. With this at-a-glance information at your fingertips, you can hire the right cheap maid service the first time around.

Skilled and Capable

There’s more to offering an affordable maid service than simply being able to turn up on time. Maids who use Handy to find work have the ability and the dedication to tackle even the toughest jobs, whether you want your home cleaned once a week, every other week, or just once a month. In addition to being skilled and capable, the cheap maid service professionals that you’re matched with will come with all the equipment and cleaning products they need. However, if you’d rather they used yours, just let them know when you book through Handy.

Reliable

When you’re looking for affordable maids, you want to know more than just whether they’re able to do the job. You want to know that the maid you hire is reliable and trustworthy, too. For your peace of mind, affordable maids who advertise through the Handy platform are background-checked. And we also know that there’s nothing worse than hanging around, waiting for a maid to turn up. Cheap maid service professionals booked through Handy turn up on time, so you can get on with your day. If you can’t be there when they arrive, you can leave your key either in a lockbox or with your doorman, and come back to a spotless, sparkling home.

Flexible

Using Handy means you don’t have to stick to the parameters set out by large cleaning companies. If you want extras included that might fall beyond the scope of regular affordable maid services, all you have to do is request it during checkout. The Handy platform even features an online checklist where you can lay out the duties you’d like taken care of in prioritized order. You can even include things like laundry services.

The Best Affordable Maids

Cheap maid services at affordable prices

Using the Handy platform to connect with cheap maid services in your area can be an extremely cost-effective alternative to using a bigger cleaning business with high prices and long wait times. When you’re matched with maids in your area, you’ll be presented with a clear and competitive quote before you book, so you can decide whether it best suits both your needs and your budget. In addition, there are no hidden fees, so the price you’re quoted is the price you’ll pay.

Schedule changed?  No problem!

Some of the large maid service businesses seem to forget that your schedule can change. Cancel with a big company and you’re looking at steep cancellation fees or penalties, even if you let them know in advance. That’s not how we do things at Handy. If something comes up and you need to cancel or reschedule, there’s no problem; just give us at least 24 hours’ notice and we’ll book another appointment at a time that’s better for you.

Quick and convenient

Don’t worry if you don’t have any cash to hand -- Handy has a secure online payments system, so you can pay for your cleaning with just a few clicks. Because you know exactly what you’re paying in advance, you don’t have to go through any awkward negotiation with your chosen cheap maid service provider after the work is done.  And afterwards, if you’d like to tip your maid, that can be done through the app as well! Reputation is everything to the affordable maids who use the Handy platform to advertise themselves, which is why they’ll go that little bit further to give you an outstanding and cheap maid service. In the unlikely event that you’re unhappy with the work done, the Handy Happiness Guarantee means that work hard to make it right.
