Save up to $8,000 p.a. by hiring a part time maid instead of a full time maid

Contrary to popular belief, part time maids in Singapore are actually much cheaper to hire compared to full time maids. Add to that issues of privacy, trust, and liabilities, it becomes a no brainer that hiring part time helpers is a better choice. 

To begin with, let us break down the costs involved in hiring full time helpers. When hiring a helper, there are several one-time expenditures which include but are not limited to

One-time costs of hiring full time helper

Now, we look at the recurring expenses that you will have to incur for the duration of a full time helper’s employment with you.

Monthly / Recurring costs of hiring full time helper

So, it turns out that hiring a full time helper will set you back by roughly $22,775 per annum. 

Now let’s compare this to the cost of hiring a part time helper in Singapore. Even with the best part time maid provider like Sendhelper, it costs only $22/hour to hire a part time cleaner on a recurring basis. With additional discount, while paying by credits, the hourly rate for cleaning and cooking roughly comes down to $20/hour. 

What will it cost you per year to hire a part time maid to meet your needs? 

Depending on the size of your home and your specific requirements for home cleaning along with ironing of clothes, the number of hours needed may vary. The following table will give you a good indication of your expenses based on cost of $20/hour. 

Cost Comparison

On average, for a standard 2 bedroom + living room apartment, 3 to 3.5 hours of cleaning is sufficient even after including some ironing of clothes. Now, say you want home cooked meals too, so adding another 1.5 to 2 hours, a sum total of 5 hours of work should be sufficient for an average home with a household size of 3-4 people.  

With cleaning and cooking done every alternate day of the week, using a part time helper will only cost you $1,200 per month or $14,400 per annum. This translates to cost savings of $8,375 per year when compared to full time helper cost of $22,775 per annum!

Apart from the extra cost of hiring full time helpers, there is also the hidden cost of renting or living in a larger apartment so as to provide lodgings for the full time helper. Further, if privacy is an issue for you, then it can be a major turn off as well. The flexibility and zero liability that comes with part time maids is in stark contrast to high potential for disputes and risk of liabilities that come with full time helpers. 

On platforms like Sendhelper, you can always hire part time cleaners and cooks in Singapore at short notice. All service providers on Sendhelper are vetted, verified, checked for criminal records and are legally eligible to work in Singapore. Not only that, there is a healthy diversity in terms of backgrounds, age, gender, race and language abilities that suit your preferences. The helpers are also insured up to $1 million dollars of coverage, so you don’t need to worry about any potential disputes as well. 

The icing on the cake is the flexibility that a part time helper from a platform like Sendhelper offers. This gives you the option to change helpers anytime vs. a full time helper who is fixed for a period of 1 to 2 years. Further, when a full time helper is on annual vacation, you have no one else to take care of their duties. However, helpers on Sendhelper are available 365 days a year. In case, you are going to be on a holiday, as a Sendhelper user you have the option to pause your service for as long as you want. Over and above that, using a platform like Sendhelper has added benefits of bigger discounts on laundry / dry cleaning, handyman, BBQ help, aircon servicing, among others.
