Why People Choose Us
When our dog sitter of more than a decade relocated, we were panicked. We needed someone who, when we were out of town, would stay at our home and care for our two big, boisterous, dogs. We tried a few friends of friends, but never felt confident enough in their skills or their love of dogs, to really relax. Then we heard about Steve, and now we can’t imagine a better person for the job. He handled the dogs beautifully, and they get very excited when he comes over. When we returned home, the house was spotless and the dogs were relaxed and happy. I would highly recommend this very competent, reliable, and caring individual.
Steve is a great organizer and is not shy about diving right into the project. I can’t believe the transformation of my home after the few short weeks of 4hrs a day and a mountain of stuff to sort, box, discard, donate or stage for the photographer in listing my place for sale! Constantly moving, patiently supporting and taking all issues in consideration to accomplish my goals, I miss him already!
Steve has been helping me "de-stuff" my house. He has a great eye for detail and has kept me going when it's been difficult. He helps me make hard decisions and supports my efforts to become more organized. I highly recommend his help!
Since moving out of state four years ago, I was no longer able to do the special birthday celebrations I've always enjoyed doing for my mother. I found The Task At Hand, told them what I wanted and they took care of everything! They even helped with selecting new places to go for that special birthday dessert and Flowers. I've been using The Task At Hand every year now and my mother thoroughly enjoys knowing Steve is coming to wish her a happy birthday too!
At the drop of a hat, Steve and The Task At Hand have been able to help my family when we needed it most. Steve is reliable, trustworthy and cares about his clients...I would highly recommend Steve!
Steve has worked on one project for us and to succeed the person needed much tenacity, ingenuity, and integrity. He certainly possesses all those characteristics and more which enabled him to succeed in assisting our company. Steve was very timely in his communication which was needed given that we conducted business between Oregon and British Columbia, and all transactions were fluid making for absolutely no trust issues. He is definitely our choice when requiring that "extra hand" needed to succeed with challenges that come our way.
Steve and Task At Hand are a go-to service for me. I can call him anytime, even hours before the job, and he will get the job done.
When I needed to procure 30 floor lamps of a specific design for an art installation, I thought I would have to drive to Portland and back (more than 16 hours round trip!). Steve came to my rescue. He responded quickly to my email, negotiated with the store to procure the lamps and packaged them for the freight carrier. We were on a tight schedule for the show and he was on top of it and kept me posted every step of the way... and at a very reasonable cost. A huge help in making our show a success. Thanks Steve!
I was out of town longer than I expected and my friend couldn't get my dog to the boarding kennel. Steve made all the necessary arrangements, got the balance of her inoculations, picked up my dog and drove her to the kennel. He was very professional and knew how to handle the situation in a businesslike manner.
