What does Homeservice24 cost compared to other providers?

Anyone looking for support in the household has the choice between many placement platforms for domestic help. How the various providers differ is often difficult to see with the naked eye. But there are big differences - especially in the costs and working conditions of the domestic helpers.

Which platform is right for me?

When choosing a platform, you should first look at the costs. It is best not to compare hourly rates, but long-term costs, e.g. over the course of a year. Also take into account any one-off costs. This is the only way to get a realistic estimate.

Also find out about the working conditions of the domestic helpers:

Are there any commission payments for the housekeepers and how much of their wages do they have to hand over?

Are the domestic helpers insured against accidents?

Are the domestic helpers legally employed and registered?

What are the costs?

If you want to employ a domestic helper, you have to consider the costs involved beforehand. Caution is advised here, because there are often hidden costs that are not obvious at first glance. For example, many platforms demand commission payments from their cleaners - this means that the provider earns money per hour worked.
Here we explain how the costs are made up and how you can save up to CHF 1'300.- with Homeservice24 compared to other providers.
