How to Contact Handy via Snail Mail
If you’re using an app to hire a housecleaner, chances are that you’re pretty tuned-in to technology. You should probably contact customer service via email or Twitter if you want a quick response.
But, we understand that some people are traditionalists. There are still folks out there who enjoy the old pen-and-paper method.
So, Handy lists their address on their website and encourages customers to write them.
If that’s your preferred method of communication, you can reach them at:
Attn: Customer Service, Handy Technologies, Inc.
P.O. Box 1122, New York, NY 10159
They accept questions, comments, complaints, fan mail, etc.
If you’re a true Handy fan, feel free to write them a letter to let them know how much you love them. We’re sure it’ll make their day.
What is Handy’s Phone Number?
Ahhh…the old phone number question.
What is Handy’s phone number and how do I get a real person on the phone?
This is a common question with most app-based companies. They’re notorious for keeping their digits secret. It’s nearly impossible to get Lyft, Upwork, or even Facebook on the phone.
Unfortunately, Handy is no different. They don’t list their number anywhere on their website. If you have urgent issues and want to talk to a customer service rep on the phone, you’ll have a hard time making it happen.
This goes for employees, too. As far as we know, there’s no Handy pro hotline. Contractors are referred to the Contact Us page just like everyone else.
But be assured that Handy will do their best to resolve your issue if you contact them through another channel. There is the Handy Happiness Guarantee, after all.
