Can I book more than one student?

Can I make a recurring booking?

Absolutely! You can book a student for a recurring task either weekly, fortnightly or monthly on the Book a Student page.

How far ahead can I schedule a task?

Tasks must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance to ensure we can find a student, but after that, there are no limits. Want your lawn mown in 2031? Get your booking in now if you like 😉

Do I need to be home when the student comes?

Short answer, no. That being said we do recommend that for the first time a student works for you, you are there to help them out with any questions they have. We want to make sure that you have the best experience possible, and it’s important that your student knows what they are supposed to be doing.

Can I request a student I have had before?

Absolutely! Stakk is a community, and we understand that when you have a student that you like, you want to hang on to them.

For recurring bookings, we try to send the same student each time anyway, but for one time bookings, just drop the name of the student you’d like into the comments and we’ll do our best to cater for you.

During what times can I book a student?

The times change throughout the year due to school holidays. During the school term, we operate from 4pm to 6pm on weekdays, and 8am to 6pm on weekends.

During the holidays, we shift to 8am to 6pm for weekdays and weekends.

How do I view my bookings?

Once you have made a booking, you’ll receive an email with a link to our booking management platform. From there, you can view, edit, and even cancel your bookings.


How do payments work on Stakk?

Once you have entered your payment details on the Booking Page, the bank will hold onto these funds until the job is confirmed as complete. Once the job is complete and you are happy with the task done, the bank will release the funds to us.

All payments are done and processed securely through our website upon booking via Visa or Mastercard. You don’t have to worry about paying the students, we do that for you.

Do I need to pay the student that comes and helps me?

No, we can cover that for you! All you have to do is complete the booking form and we do the rest.

Changes and Cancellations

How do I cancel or reschedule a task?

Once you have made a booking, you’ll receive an email with a link to our booking platform. From there you can view, edit, reschedule and cancel your tasks. Alternatively, send an email to and we can do that for you.

I used a coupon for a task that was then cancelled. What now?

I wasn't satisfied with the service.

My student hasn't arrived.

Please contact our team and we will happily refund or send another student to you to complete the job.

My student needs more time to complete the service.

Don’t worry, this happens a lot. If this is the case, our students know that they will keep working until the job is done. From there, you should email and we can change the booking to reflect the new hours.


How can I communicate with my student prior to them coming?

We’ll usually handle all communication for you, but if you need to speak to your student about specific job details, send an email to and we’ll put you in touch.
