The enterprise also plans to launch operations in Edinburgh and Glasgow by early 2019.

The on-demand app, which IKEA received in 2017, connects humans with others who’ll do their tedious household obligations. This consists of cleaning, assembling flat-packed furniture, mounting TVs, and delivering. However, think of it as Uber for the “man in a van” (or lady) of this international. TaskRabbit first launched in London five years ago. It’s been a London-unique app for the most component because of that. It simplest started operations out of doors of the capital earlier this year, while it expanded to Birmingham, Bristol, and Manchester.

According to TaskRabbit, the average hourly fee for one of its “Taskers” is £24. This is nearly three instances, the countrywide minimum salary of £7.83 for the ones over 25. That said, London is a more expensive city, and it’ll be exciting to see if the average prices stay equal in less expensive (and poorer) markets like Liverpool and Warrington.
