Oisin Hanrahan Plans to Propel Handy to a Respected and Influential Level in the Cleaning Industry

When dealing with a tight work schedule, contracting a professional home cleaner is a smart move. You are guaranteed to receive excellent cleaning services since the cleaner has experience in his or her field of expertise. Handy has managed to establish a strong niche in the home cleaning industry.

Oisin interest in business started when he was still in College. He was a real estate developer based in Hungary. He noted that people were reluctant to perform small tasks such as cleaning the apartment. However, Handy did not come into his mind at that time. He proceeded to venture into taxi service industry. The idea of the Handybook was born when he joined Harvard to pursue his MBA. He met a friend at Harvard and after strategizing, they decided to implement the concept.

During that summer, the pair raised over $50,000 in incubator and seed money. The pair opted to base the company in New York instead of Boston. Most cleaning firms would have chosen Silicon Valley, but the pair chose New York.

Despite the high number of companies that offer services similar to Handy, the firm has managed to outdo them by far. Oisin claimed that Handy was handling many transactions than any cleaning services provider. Handy has managed to maintain the quality of cleaning services provided despite its immense growth.

Initially known as Handybook, Handy was established in June 2012. The founders are Umang Dua, Oisin Hanrahan, and Weina Scott. Handy is based in New York and offers its services in 28 cities located in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.

Apart from home cleaning, Handy offers services such as furniture assembly, TV mounting, moving assistance, picture and shelves hanging, as well as interior painting. The firm started offering furniture assembly and delivery in 2015.
