Home swappers, a solution to your problems has arrived - in London at least.
When you're off on holiday or preparing to have someone in your home there's all those errands to run to make sure everything's perfect.
Whether it's getting a cleaner in, sprucing up the garden, stocking the fridge, finding someone to look after the cat or simply going to the store and picking up groceries. London-based Sooqini, a task marketplace, is ready to help you.
Odd word Sooqini isn't it? Let's break it down. A Souq is an Arab marketplace and -ini, well, it means small and local (and probably cute?) So there it is a small local marketplace.
To help you get started, post a task up and decide how much you are willing to pay for completing the task. After posting wait for sellers, people who are willing to complete the task for you, to respond. Among those who have responded choose the best offer and only once the job is completed will you have to pay.
Sooqini makes use of all those people local to your home who have the skills to help you, but that you just didn't know about - yet!
Visit the site (Sooqini.com) and tell their ever-ready band of errand-runners what you need. To make it even easier they are contributing £5 to your account when you sign up with us to make your lives that little bit easier.
Sooqini is not just somewhere you can buy but it's also somewhere you can sell. Maybe your fellow swapper round the corner needs someone to do a spot of pre-guest preparation, maybe that person is you! You're earning some money you can spend during that next swap you've got in mind.
