SidePros

Need something done?

Have a job you’d normally hire a company for? Cut out the middleman and go straight to a pro.

The SidePros Process

1

New job is posted

When someone needs work done, they post a job with details of what they need done: job type, location, timeframe, etc.

3

SidePros respond

SidePros who are available and interested in the job will respond with follow-up questions and answers with the job poster.

5

Work and payment

The job poster and SidePro arrange a time for the work to be done. Payment method is up to the job poster and the SidePro.

2

Local SidePros are notified

A notification is sent out to local SidePros who match the job poster's location and job type (mechanic, electrician, etc).

4

Job poster picks a SidePro

The job poster compares the interested SidePros and chooses one. We then exchange contact information with both of them.
