Background check fee

When you apply to use the Handy platform as a professional, we require a background check. This helps our platform maintain the trust that keeps your customers coming back, again and again.

Certain counties and municipalities charge Handy a fee to run these background checks, so we may charge a small fee to cover part of the costs when you apply. We will charge a maximum of $20 in all regions besides NYC.  In NYC, we may charge as much as $75 due to a local regulation that requires Handy to pay $95 for each background check.
