Question DetailsAsked on 6/14/2011

Anyone know of a service around Knoxville that will rake or vacuum leaves in the fall?

I keep hearing of all these oddjob companies like Rent-a-Hubby, Fix-it-Daddy, etc. but can't find anything online or in the Knoxville directories. I live in Illinois and am trying to set something up for my elderly Knoxville Dad, whether it's with a business or a group that lines work up for teens, whatever I can find. Thanks!

Smiles, welcome

Have you asked your Dad's neighbors for references? Another potential avenue is to contact UT - most colleges maintain a list of students who are looking for occasional work; many high schools too. Be sure to carefully read Dad's home owner's insurance policy... by providing equipment he may be considered an employer and unknowingly assume legalities

If you cann't find anyone in the Angieslist directory you might want to check out the knoxville craigslist,under services click labor/movers and there you will find anyone from professional workers to high school kids.You may also want to post an ad on craigslist for help or what about contacting your local church or high school for help.Now adays its almost a must to do background checks on help though. Good Luck!!!

I, too, am looking for some assistance for my very elderly Mother. She lives in a small apt. and her eyesight is failing. It's difficult for her to "see the dirt" and I'd love to find someone in the Shawnee, KS area to give her apt. a good cleaning once or twice a month. I live in FL and need to hire someone who will not take advantage of her, as has happened in the past.
