ClubLocal--A Smarter Way to Book Home Repairs


Today instead of sharing a photography tip or trick, I am excited to tell you about a new service I was recently introduced to called ClubLocal.  While this may seem a bit off topic, it really isn't because ClubLocal is a home repair service that saves you loads of time and allows you to get back to things that you really want to do (like taking or editing photos, as was the case with me last week).

Yes,  last week I had several shoots that I needed to edit and as it so happened my bathroom sink was leaking non-stop.  After a couple of day, I realized that I could no longer stuff a rag in the sink to catch the drips and stifle the annoying sound at night and that it was time to get it fixed.  Rather than spending hours trying to find a local, reliable and affordable plumber, I used the awesome ClubLocal app and booked a pre-screened, A-rated, licensed and insured service pro from my phone in a matter of minutes.  

The best part was that I didn't have to wait a week for the repairman to show up.....he came that day within a 2 hour window (don't you hate those 5  hour windows that most companies offer?).  AND I didn't even have to wait around during those two hours because ClubLocal texted and emailed me 15 minutes before he showed up at my front door.   How fantastic is that?

The other cool thing about ClubLocal is that everything is done electronically.  Payments are made through an iPad, your invoice is sent to you via email and are saved into your online account.  Oh and your repair has a one year warranty!

I loved the service so much that later in the week I booked a car detailing service.  We had just come back from a camping trip at the beach and my car was full of sand, dog hair, and food crumbs (our no food in the car rule went out the window).  Rather than having to sit at the car wash for a couple of hours while my car was detailed, I was able to hang out at home and get work done while the awesome guys that I booked through ClubLocal worked in my driveway!  

I can't tell you how much I LOVE this service.  At this point, ClubLocal is only available in the San Francisco Bay Area and Dallas/Fort Worth area but they have plans to expand to other cities soon so keep a look out.  

We are excited to be giving away a $250 credit at ClubLocal to a San Francisco Bay Area Moms Who Click fan.  To enter all you need to do is leave a comment below with your email address letting us know what you'd like to get fixed.  A lucky winner will be picked using random.org on June 25, 2013.



*Due to the current availability of ClubLocal's services, only San Francisco Bay Area entries are valid.

  4. Thanks for sharing - I definitely want to give this service a try! Off the top of my head, I'd love to get carpets and upholstery cleaned, fix a bathroom faucet, fix the pump on our shower, and so much more.
