Hassle set for nationwide expansion following seven-figure investment
On-demand cleaning platform claims it will be the first service of its kind to offer national coverage after launching in Scotland and Wales
Hassle, the Startups 100-featured online marketplace for home cleaners, has announced the nationwide expansion of it service following a seven-figure investment.
Founded in 2012 by Young Guns Jules Coleman, Alex Depledge and Tom Nimmo, Hassle enables users to book local, vetted cleaners through the app or website for as little as £10 an hour.
The Startups Awards-nominated business claims to give its cleaners full control of their working schedule and pays them above the national minimum wage at industry standard.
So far the company has launched into 17 cities across the UK including London, Manchester, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Having been acquired by German rival Helpling last year, the start-up is in position to expand into Scotland and Wales for the first time and says it will be the first service of its kind to launch on a national scale.
Sam James, managing director of Hassle, said: “More than 2,500 independent cleaners are currently active on Hassle.com and collectively they have cleaned for more than 1.2 million hours across our cities.
“These figures demonstrate a clear added value for both sides: customers seeking an affordable and convenient solution and cleaners looking for flexible working hours and fair pay. Together, this gives us great confidence that there is still vast space to grow.”
