DISCOUNT CODE: Sendhelper - Cleaning, Cooking and Laundry App

The two year lease is up. We decided not to extend the stay with our landlord but move back into our two-bedder instead. A cleverer [and less stressful] way to handover a house is to move out and surrender the keys on a different day. A week's difference will give you a lot more time to sort things out without going through a mad rush. This was my husband's initial plan. Men are more practical right? However, me being the foolish but productive housewife, I made us handover the house on the same day as our big move. To be honest, I was not willing to pay a day more for an empty house.

"How is that possible? Do you think you are superwoman?" he quipped. 
I replied confidently, "I've got Sendhelper!"

They say never to argue with your wife and so he agreed. The second thing he asked was if I needed him to take the day's off from office to help out at home. I do not know what got into me, but I declined. I probably did think I was SuperMom and was all geared up to do this all by myself! [Don't ever do that to yourselves moms. You Need Help! I wished I wasn't that quick with my words.] 

I planned my moving day as such:
1000 hours Mover's Arrival
1430 hours Cleaner's Arrival  [from Sendhelper]
1500 hours Laundry's Arrival [from Sendhelper]
1530 hours Put The Children To Sleep
1800 hours House Handover

Before handing over the keys, the rented house needs to be cleaned thoroughly with its curtains all washed and hung. Air-conditioners are required to be serviced and walls white-washed. Highlight everything that are not in working condition and say goodbye.

With Sendhelper, I was able to stick to my plans without deviation! Sendhelper is an app. It covers your cleaning, cooking and laundry needs. I was totally intrigued by its system because I didn't know the GrabTaxi concept can be extended to home services as well! You know how you use Grab or Uber app to find a match to your transportation needs? Sendhelper does the same by looking for a match to your cleaning, cooking and laundry needs!


Using apps to call for services isn't quite my thing. I am still the pen-and-paper kind of mom and prefers speaking with someone over the phone to get my points across. You know? Instead of typing i the Remarks column? In spite of that, I thought I should go beyond my comfort zone and give this Click-and-Hire system a go.

I needed someone to dry-clean the curtains and another person to clean the house. So, I requested for these two services through the app. If no one picks up your service request after six hours, it will automatically be cancelled and you will have to re-request.

Here are the steps I went through to request the two services I required through the app:


Step 1: Choose a job service I require
Step 2: Enter details for the Laundry job
Step 3: Include any additional details for the Laundry job and Submit
Step 4: Enter details for the Cleaner job
Step 5: Include any additional details for the Cleaner job and Submit
Step 6: Wait for jobs to be assigned

As soon as my service requests were put up, I received a confirmation for a cleaner within 30 minutes. Information of the supplier's Name, Contact number, Job ID and specific details of the job requirements will be reflected in the app:


At the same time, I received text messages [my telephone number is included in the set-up profile page] from the Laundry supplier on the possibility of changing my requested pick-up date to another  time-slot. They did not accept my job request just yet but decide to find out how may curtains I needed to dry-clean first. Most importantly, we worked out on an agreed pick-up and return date of the curtains to minimise the number of days we will have to live without them and to be back in time for the house handover. As soon as I agreed to the rate, time and dates did they accepted my Laundry job request through the app. I liked this personable service!

When both jobs got accepted, my Jobs screen looked like this:



Did they turn up on the stipulated date and time? Yes they did!

They were reliable and friendly. Most importantly, they made it such a breeze for me I wouldn't hesitate to hire more services again through the Sendhelper app. The house was handed over all squeaky and dust-free with curtains looking less greyish than before. Both men are individual suppliers and they do not know each other prior to this. It is only coincidental that they are football fans. I was a little amused that they wore football jerseys at work *haha* Thank you Alan and Suresh for being such pleasant people to work with.


There will no longer be any cash payments. Your credit card will be charged after the service is completed. Send helper uses the same payment structure as GrabTaxi where users are required to enter their credit card details in the secure in-app payment system.

I'd really like to give the Cooking job a shot next time! Imagine hiring a home-cook on at ad-hoc basis to your home for a meal! Well, you've got to have all cooking utensils and ingredients available of course. I'll share again on our experience the next time we try this service out!

Cleaning Note: Jobs are priced at S$20 per hour at an ad-hoc basis. Recurring jobs will be priced at S$18 per hour. You will be required to provide all cleaning materials.

Laundry Note: We dry-cleaned our curtains at S$23 per pair.

Promo Code: Enter "MUMMAY15" to enjoy 15% off your laundry needs on your first job request. This code is available from now till 31 July 2016.

Contest: There is an on-going Facebook contest at Sendhelper FB Page which will end on 30th April 2016. Stand to win S$100 towards laundry/dry-cleaning services simply by sharing an unforgettable laundry story! Good Luck!

    1. Ya boyz! Grabbing Cooking services are so cool! But I still have to have the ingredients ready though. I am not a good cook and definitely cannot be a food planner. Prefer to have someone who does the marketing for me as well hehehe

  8. A very cool app indeed. But my hubby prefers not to be home when they are cleaning. Hence, we engaged a helper that comes weekly and they come to clean when we are not around. ^_^ Would like to try out on days when I can sit back catch a video while the guys do the job.
