Thumbtack.comWhen you are on the road during a travel physical therapy job your company is going to handle a lot of life’s little headaches for you, like plumbing problems (yuck!) or setting you up with furniture in your housing.

But there are still bound to be issues that you encounter that you will need to help with. For instance do you know where you would go in a new city to have your computer fixed or watch your dog?

Or what if you just want a massage or need guitar lessons? 

With Thumbtack.com you can easily find people providing these services in the cities your travel physical therapy assignment is in.

Using the site is easy. Here are the basics:

  1. Sign up with your email address and Zipcode – make sure to add new or change your locations if your next assignment takes you to another city
  2. You can search for a service you need (and they have great customized search tools) or post a request using their Personal Concierge Service and they will find someone who provides it for you within 24 hours
  3. And if you want, you can set up your own service to provide and market yourself, although that may be tough for a traveler. However, if you can make money from properly fitting running shoes on the road or sharing that hidden drawing skill while you are on the road why not set one up.

Also, like all good sites like this they have good privacy options that let you set the visibility levels of your profile.

At the very least if you don’t set up your own profile you can browse the services provided in your state (these are listed at the bottom of the site) to find the contact info and web addresses of the businesses on Thumbtack.com, which could make your next assignment easier if you need to find a trusted service quickly.

So check it out.
