NEW YORK, May 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Facebook and Handy understand the power of local commerce and its impact on building communities. Today, Handy is announcing an integration to make it easier for millions of shoppers to book a Handy local service professional directly through Facebook Marketplace.

To use the feature, simply search for services like cleaning, handyman, furniture assembly, or smart home setup, among other popular categories. Once a service is booked, shoppers can communicate with their Handy professional directly through Facebook Messenger or through the Handy app. As with all Handy services, customers can schedule an appointment and a qualified local professional will arrive on time, between 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., to handle the rest. All Handy services are backed by the Handy Happiness Guarantee.

“We’re excited to work with Facebook to bring convenient, high-quality home services to millions of people around the country,” said Oisin Hanrahan, CEO and Cofounder of Handy. “By empowering the Facebook community to support local service professionals directly through Marketplace, Facebook is providing its members with an incredibly useful and powerful resource.”
