An easy to use online platform that helps people to request services like car repairs,dog walking, house cleaning, parcel delivery, just to name a few, from people around them. LocaL2LocaL is a community-based real-time help service.
Almost anything you can think of with the list of categories expanding regularly as suggestions are made. As the platform expands and more Service Providers get on-board and realise their skills can make them extra money after work even if its “not your day job”, the list of jobs will be almost endless.
Anyone with a device and the capability to download an App can request a job (under 18 year olds need to have a parent or guardians approval).
A Service Provider is someone who can offer their services, skills or talents on the LocaL2LocaL App and complete the job for the Service Seeker who requested them.
A Service Seeker is a person who needs a job done.
LocaL2LocaL has the unique advantage of real time tracking of the requested job. If a Service Seeker has a job they need done immediately and there is a Service Provider nearby who accepts the job, they can track them from the acceptance of the job. This eliminates the window of time that some trades offer as to when they will arrive and gives real time updates as they travel to your job. You can now plan your day and not be left wondering.
The total Service Fee amount charged will always be clearly displayed. The Service Fee will only be payable once a job has been accepted by a Service Provider. All service fees are subject to GST, which will be clearly displayed on the invoice. A Service fee is charged for all payments made through the LocaL2LocaL payment gateway (Stripe) If a cancellation occurs a service fee may still be charged.

You can register to be both a Service Seeker and a Service Provider for free. It is also free for a Service Provider to advertise their business & personal services. A Service Provider nominates the amount they wish to be paid either per job or per hour. When a Service Seeker engages you to do a job, the nominated amount is secured from the Service Seeker’s credit card and placed on hold. When the Service Provider completes the job, they are paid automatically less a small engagement fee of 9%. Local2Local will send both the Service Seeker and Service Provider a receipt and tax invoice for the transaction.
