NEW YORK, June 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Handy, the leading home services platform, today announced that 2018 is proving no exception to the annual run-up in bookings that the six-year-old startup sees during the warmer summer months.
"Every year, we see organic volume pick up beginning around April and lasting through the early fall," said Xavier de Gracia, Handy's Associate Director of Strategy. "Generally speaking, we see an additional 15-30% bump in cleaning demand above our baseline growth during these months."
"In Manhattan, for example, data shows that over 40% of lease signings happen between May and August, so you tend to see more move out cleanings during these months. Also, folks tend to socialize more when it's nice out. Customers tell us that preparing for and/or cleaning up after social company is a big motivator to call in a Handy pro for extra help around the house."
The seasonality isn't limited to just cleaning, however. Handy sees bookings tend to spike in many of the handyman services they offer.
