How many times have you put something off because you couldn’t do it yourself? Be it home repairs, cleaning tasks or even things like booking in for a haircut because you need a new stylist and have no idea where to start looking? I know it can be hard to look for people to carry out work I need doing, especially in London. You want someone who you can trust to come in and do what you need quickly and professionally.
I think a lot of us rely on our friends and family to recommend people but what if that didn’t work for you? This is where Mammalo comes in. Mammalo is an online service that can connect you to a wide range of services and professionals who can carry out tasks for you.
Update November 2022: Unfortunately the Mammalo website appears to be no longer be online. Any links have therefore been removed.
The site is really easy to use and to find the right person for your job, all you need to do is visit mammalo.com, pick the service you need from the scroll down menu or from one of the 4 categories and compare a wide range of verified profiles and prices.
I like that it also has a star rating so you can see what previous customers thought of their service and the work completed.
When Would You Use Mammalo?
Right now Mammalo has many professionals for hire within different services. I have discovered there is a wide range of photographers, hairdressers and makeup artists. It would make it so easy when organising an event or, your own wedding party perhaps. With their prices in the profiles, you can see upfront exactly how much you can expect to pay for on an hourly basis.
They also have personal chefs. For me, this latter would have been ideal for when the family or friends have visited in the past. As both Nick and I work full time, we are always rushing and struggling to fit things in around the girls. This has meant that in the past we haven’t been able to accommodate having family over for a special meal as we haven’t had time to prepare anything. I am not the best in the kitchen and you know that sometimes life as a parent takes over and you struggle to get time to fit everything in.
We have had to arrange to meet somewhere that we can all get together and celebrate special occasions when ordering a takeout doesn’t quite befit the situation. With Mammalo offering the services of a personal chef with prices from as low as £15 per hour (based on a search result for Chinese cuisine), this would have been perfect to be able to host our family in our home with a lovely special meal that has been prepared for us by trained chefs.
It sounds great right! Getting a lovely meal in your home that you didn’t have to cook! This is a great idea for special occasions, with Valentine’s Day coming up it is definitely something I would consider to surprise Nick with. It would make the night really special and it means we wouldn’t have to find babysitters for Bella and Sienna too which is a bonus.
Alternatively, if you are a professional looking to find customers you can always register your services on Mammalo to boost your business and bring in more work. Mammalo is currently only available in London but there plans to extend this to other areas soon.
Have you ever used a service like Mammalo?

Love you all ❤️

I have not used a website like this before but it sounds a lot like Angie’s list which is a website you have to pay to use to find local services.
I haven’t heard of Angie’s list here. It is really handy this service! And they will keep expanding what they offer so it is great as well as giving more exposure to local businesses/freelancers which is really good! 🙂 x

There are several sites similar to this in the US. I have not used one before but I would if I ever needed to.
Yes, having a meal in your home that you didn’t have to cook sounds heavenly! The closest thing I will ever get to this is my crock pot! LOL
Lol I know! I am not a great cook so this for me is definitely heaven! Lol xx
Something like this would be perfect in my rural part of the world. #kcacols
Yes I think so too 🙂
Oh Mammalo sounds like an amazing service and I’m sure many people would get something from it! Sounds impressive. #kcacols
