Club Local Uses Uber’s Taxi Model to Bring Services to Your Home

If you’ve ever tried to find local services on Craigslist, you know it’s a hit or miss. Then, there’s always the paranoia of bringing a total stranger into your home on top of the questionable, opaque pricing policy. I’m sure Forest Gump wasn’t talking about that when he said life is like a box of chocolate, but it really is you never know what you’re going to get.

That’s why I am really excited about Club Local. The company just launched its San Francisco services today and users can get their first service for Free! Club Local is great because all of the pricing is transparent and guaranteed to be lower than local market averages. Each Club Local licensed and insured contractor is pre-screened for quality. On top of that, their contractors all go through criminal background checks for added security.

Just use the app to book your service of choice for a two hour window, and track the estimated arrival time of your contractor with the app. Pay club Local once you’re done and that’s it! My favorite part about the service is that you can find all of your transactions and warranties on the app or website – you know, just in case things didn’t work out.
