Don't feel like spending long hours to find the person you need for your tasks? Would you like to get clear prices, follow your task progress comfortably, and make payments seamlessly? Now, all of it is possible in the way that's most convenient to you! By booking services through Discontract, you'll be able to leave those tiring searches in the past, and instead see how quickly your projects can progress – without all the extra effort.

How do you get started?

Get ready to book your first service. We promise – it's a breeze. Follow the instructions below and see for yourself:

➢ First, click on the search bar on the main page.

➢ Type in the service you're looking for or select it from the list.

➢ You will now need to provide some information about your order, such as your address, date, preferred time of your task, its estimated duration, and a short description. To give the pro a clear idea of what has to be done, you may also be asked to indicate room size or upload a photo of the object that you need help with for certain service categories.

Estimated task duration: Remember, the final cost of your order will be calculated according to the hourly rate of the selected service provider and the actual time spent on the task. You will be able to later consult the estimated duration directly with the selected pro.

Description of the task: You don't have to go over every single detail, but keep in mind that the more information you provide, the easier it will be for the pro to give an accurate estimate in regards to the task duration and any additional expenses it may require.

➢ When all the fields have been filled in, click on Find a Pro. We'll give you a list of local pros, where you'll be able to select the right person for the job by comparing profiles, hourly rates, and ratings. Click Sort by to choose which pros to see first.
