Who We Are

About us 2019-06-18T17:47:10+00:00

The Localhands concept was founded in 2017. Our Founders were very active in projects around the house and were constantly being disappointed
by cancelled appointments, an insane spectrum of pricing for the same job and providers that were driving more than an hour away to get to a job that might be an hour or two or even less. Even the smallest jobs were either cancelled because they were too far away or the price the provider wanted was so far away
from realty,they would want $100 in travel time fees alone! We started to think that most small tasks aren’t even worth it. Then the idea for LocalHands was born.

We knew there was a need to be able to hire people quickly and easily for very small micro jobs. Travel time from job to job was a killer because in most micro jobs it takes longer to get to the job than it does to perform the job. LocalHands eliminates travel time and puts Local Background Checked providers into the hands of people that need help, on your terms. We have opened offices in both Northern California in El Dorado Hills and in Southern California in San Clemente.

We are building our network of Local Background Checked Providers to help in on your price and terms in Real Time for all your projects.
Every now and then we can all use an extra set of hands. LocalHands
