How reliable are maid service agencies in today’s time?

Have you ever tried any of those Maid Service Agencies?

Were they reliable enough? Or is it that you had no other option left?

After having tried all the options of finding a Maid or a Babysitter, there’s one last solution that most of us living in Metro cities try – reaching out to Maid Service Agencies.

And since the need to have a Maid is always urgent, we usually go ahead with the option that opens up in front of us.

So, what do you do when you reach out to Maid Service Agencies?

  • First, you search for ‘Maid Service Agency near me’ on the Internet
  • Or you find contacts of a few Maid Service Agencies through your references
  • Next, you call them and let them know your requirement
  • You ask a few fundamental questions on whether you can rely on them or not, are the maids verified, etc.
  • And most importantly, you check how long would it take for them to help you hire a Maid or a Babysitter through them

The challenge of finding a reliable Maid is tough in bigger cities.

And therefore, we don’t dwell much into the details of Maid Service Agencies, as long as the problem gets solved for us, in any manner it may be.

Historically, Maid Service Agencies have existed for years in cities.

Even though it costs a few thousand, there are a few of them who are good, offer great service and are also recognized by references.

But, there are plenty of Maid Service Agencies in almost every city in India, who are not operating legitimately.

No wonder why we keep hearing stories like:

  • Maid ran away with valuables
  • Placement agency takes money, but Maid flees
  • Maid service agency duped a doctor in Delhi
  • Citizen’s experiences with fake agencies

There are many such stories that we keep hearing from different parts of the city at a different point in time.

These stories have become fairly common now.

Furthermore, if you have gone past the stage of finding a Maid through a few Maid Service Agencies, there are many further challenges one has to deal with.

Some of the most common challenges that we all face are:

  1. Doubt on Credibility & Reliability: Some of the common questions that occur to your mind are – How credible is the Maid Service Agency that you are dealing with? Will the maid service agency ensure you get a reliable Maid? Can the Agent guarantee a safe recruit? Is it possible that the Maid Service Agency shares the past credentials of the Maid who you hire? Would the Agency be there to help you if you face any problem?
  2. Transparency Issues: Will the Maid Service agency be entirely transparent in its procedures? Will they share all the details of the Maid in absolute transparency?
  3. And how do they treat the Maids? Does the Maid Service Agency treat their Maids with respect? How are they connected with the Maids? Are the Maids working with the agency willingly or have they been forced to do the job of a Maid out of some liability or any hidden reason? Are the Maids being treated as Working Professionals?
  4. Uncertain financial transactions: Would the Maid Service Agency give the right amount of monthly salary to the Maid? Would they provide the full amount that you give them or would they charge a hefty commission from her every month’s salary? Very often we hear stories where the agencies charge exorbitant money from the customers but pay the Maids in peanuts.
  5. And finally, are the Maids reliable? It is very natural to be concerned about the Maid’s reliability. Since the Maid is going to be with your family, children & elders for a long period and will have access to the entire house, it is essential that the new person is reliable enough and we know her background in as much detail.

These challenges are always there, many before hiring a Maid, and a few after as well.

Some of the doubts get answered while for rest we all take a bit of risk and move on.

How do you find a Maid if you are not getting one easily?

Is there any way to ensure the Maid Service Agency that you are in touch with is a legitimate one?

How can you ensure the Maid Service Agency does every bit of transaction diligently, deals with the Maids in the right way and is entirely transparent in dealing with you?

Largely, when dealing with a Maid Service Agency, most of the question will always remain unanswered.

However, the problem of finding a Maid does get answered, that too in the easiest way possible.
