Hire strangers to do your dry cleaning, deliver dinner and even babysit your kid. It’s all possible from your phone
There isn’t much you can’t do on a smartphone these days. Shopping, banking, dating and job hunting – there are apps for all of that. If you’d like help finding the nearest public washroom, a bottle of wine to go with dinner tonight, or even people in your area to cuddle with, there are apps for all of those things too.
Then, there are apps that enable you to hire strangers to do certain jobs for you. Uber’s a good example. The ride-hail app, which has been available in Toronto since 2014, connects riders with local drivers – not unlike taxis. (You can read more about that here.)
While the city is still trying to find a way to regulate the tech-transportation company, a bunch of businesses have followed in Uber’s footsteps, allowing users to get food delivered and dry-cleaning done with the click of a button. We’ve rounded up a few of these Uber-like apps, all available to Toronto residents, below.
Back are the days when someone else did your laundry.
Exclusive Dry Cleaners offers a similar service, except that app users don’t need to find a drop-off bin. Customers can designate the pick-up and drop-off locations and drivers come to your door. Price quotes can be requested before a job begins and pricing starts at just over $3 for a laundered shirt.
