Proof of payment to be emailed to admin@doober.co.za
NB: Your email subject and your payment reference must be your ID number

In order to move up the Doober ranks and earn more money – yes.

No criminal record screening will leave you as a Doobro and you will only earn Doobro rates no matter how high clients rate you.

No, you are responsible for your own PPE and basic tools and equipment.

You are required to provide your own basic standard tools/equipment that you require for each job. These items include (but are not limited to): –

  • PPE/ overalls
  • Ladder
  • Paint brushes
  • Hand tools
  • Power tools
  • All job tools
  • Cleaning rags etc.

You do not need to supply the job materials. The client will supply the job materials required.

(Complete List of materials to be provided by Client or Labourer)

No – these will be supplied by the client.

If your calendar on the DOOBER LABOURER APP shows that you are available and a job request of your suited job type and area location comes in – the app will notify you (as well as all other available and suited Doober labourers accordingly.

You will have 1 hour in which to accept or reject the job request, unless another suitable Doober labourer accepts the request before you do.

You will have to cancel the job and select the reason for cancellation accordingly. You will also need to report the client to Doober.

If you arrive at the site and find that the client has given the incorrect job size on Doober (for jobs that are paid per m2 i.e. “per job”) – You have the option to request a “Re-Quote” on the app.

If the client accepts – the job will continue as normal.

If the client rejects – normal job cancellation fees and cancelled job payments will apply.

If you are more than 1 hour late – the job will be cancelled and you will not receive any payment for this job. The client will also rate you low and you will not receive job requests as easily as highly ranked Doober labourers in your area.

The consequences of the mistake will depend on the severity of the mistake. Doober personnel will investigate and determine the next steps.

As a Doober labourer, your only expense (to Doober) will be the once-off administration fee upon sign-up. Should you sign-up for free and want to be promoted from a Doobro to a Doopro in the future – this once-off fee will still apply.

You will be liable for the costs of your own basic tools, equipment and PPE.

You will be liable for your own transport costs to and from Doober clients.

When the client has paid for the job in full, your DOOBER LABOURER APP will notify you. Only once you receive this notification can you commence the job.

Once a job has been scheduled – a deposit is required to secure the booking (this is paid electronically by the client directly to Doober).

On commencement of the job – once the you (the labourer) have confirmed the job details (after viewing the site) – the job payment is required to be paid in full.

This is also paid electronically by the client directly to Doober.

Only once a job has been marked complete (by both the client as well as the labourer) and once you have rated the client (and the client has rated you) – will Doober release payment to your bank account accordingly.

If the client cancels the job more than 12 hours ahead of the job commencement time – you will not be paid.

If the client cancels the job less than 12 hours before job commencement time – you will be paid the ½ day rate.

If you work hard and receive high ratings; and have a criminal record screening done – Doober will promote you to a higher Labourer category where you will start earning a higher rate for the work that you complete.
