How to find a reliable & genuine Maid without a Maid Agency?

agency for maids

Have you ever tried a Maid Agency to find a Maid?

Did you find them reliable enough? Or is it that you had no other option left?

Have you tried Helpers Near Me yet? It helps you find multiple professionally verified Maids near you without the middlemen in between. Even the charges are nominal – starting at Rs.99/- only.

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 a Maid Agency!

And since the need to have a Maid at that stage 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 a Maid Agency?

  • First, you Search for a ‘Maid Agency near me’ on the Internet
  • Or you find contacts of 1-2 Maid Agencies through your references
  • Next, you call them and let them know your requirement
  • You so ask a few fundamental questions on whether you can rely on them or not
  • And most importantly, you check how long would it take for them to help you have a Maid or a Babysitter

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

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

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

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

But, there are plenty of Maid 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 Maid Agency, there are many further challenges one has to deal with.

Some of the common challenges that most of us face with the Maid Agency:

  1. An element of doubt on their credibility & reliability: Some of the common questions that occur to your mind are – How credible is the Maid Agency that you are dealing with? Will the Maid Agency ensure you get a reliable Maid? Can the Agent guarantee a safe recruit? Is it possible that the Maid 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. A full transparency issue: Will the Maid Agency be entirely transparent in its procedures? Will they share all the details of the Maid in absolute transparency?
  3. Question on how they treat the Maids? Does the Maid 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 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 enough? 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.

So, how do you find a Maid if you are not getting one easily?

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

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

In our opinion, when dealing with a Maid Agency, most of the question will always remain unanswered.

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